Second Successful Launch of the Indian Shourya Ballistic Missile
India has tested the Shourya nuclear-capable surface/surface missile, at the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur off Orissa coast, about 15 km from Balasore. The missile can carry a warhead weighing one ton, a weight sufficient for a nuclear device. However, its massive warhead combined with relatively high accuracy of less than 30 meters (aided GPS) make the Shourya effective for conventional attack of high value targets. Shourya is scheduled to enter service in 2013.
