The Agni-II, IV and V, Prithvi-II and Dhanush are all surface-to-surface missiles, capable of carrying nuclear warheads. But in the coming flights, they will carry dummy payloads. Dhanush is a naval variant of Prithvi and launched from ships.
Weather permitting, the first off the block will be Agni-II from a mobile launcher on Wheeler Island, off the Odisha coast.Agni-II is an intermediate range ballistic missile that can hit targets about 2,500 km away.Since Agni-II has already been inducted into the Army, the SFC will test-fire it. The SFC’s missile unit is tasked with launching missiles armed with nuclear warheadsThe SFC will next launch a two-stage Agni-IV missile that has a range of about 4,000 km. With three successful flights in a row in November 2011, September 2012 and January 2014, Agni-IV has already been inducted into the Army, sources said.
