India said that the launch of Agni-IV, its strategic missile, from the Wheeler Island, off the Odisha coast this morning was a success, the Hindu reports.
This was the fourth success in a row for the Agni-IV missile, which has a range of more than 4,000 km. The missile unit of the Strategic Forces Command of the Army test-fired the missile on Tuesday.

After three successful flights in November 2011, September 2012 and January 2014, the missile was inducted into the Army.
Agni-IV weighs 17 tonnes and is 20 metres long. It can carry a one-tonne nuclear warhead. In this flight, however, it carried conventional explosives.
