Bhubaneswar, April 6:
India’s ballistic missile interceptor failed a test on Monday, being unable to reach its target, a senior defence official said.
The indigenous Advanced Air Defence (AAD) interceptor missile was fired from Wheeler Island off the coast in Odisha’s Bhadrak district, about 170 km from here, but plummeted into the Bay of Bengal seconds after the liftoff.
“It took off as planned but it did not reach the target. We are analysing the data,” test range director M.V.K.V. Prasad told IANS.
