"We have done it. Everything as we planned. Super hit," DRDO chief V K Saraswat tells Tarmak007 moments after the Agni-V hit the target. "Very proud of my team. Thank you India for the support," Saraswat told Tarmak007, amid sounds of screaming and huge cheer.
Sources say that the missile hit the target  area (designated area) around 8.26 am. These are early inputs.
"The missile has met all the mission objectives. All stages exactly performed the way we wanted. The technologies have been proven. Mission objectives on the dot," Avinash Chander, DRDO CC (R&D), told Tarmak007.
