India is preparing for the first launch of an upgraded version of the Agni-II missile. Known as the Agni-II Plus, Agni-II Prime or A2, this nuclear-capable missile is developed by India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).
This surface-to-surface missile can hit targets at ranges between 2,500 km and 3,000 km and is seen as a new warhead that would bridge the gap between Agni-II and Agni-III missiles, which have ranges of 2,500 km and 3,500 km, respectively.
Sources tell Aviation Week that the Agni-II Prime will be an improved platform in terms of accuracy, distance and strength. With the stage set for the A2 launch, all eyes are on Tessy Thomas, A2 Project Director (PD) for the DRDO.
