India successfully tests its nuclear-capable Agni II missile for the second time on Sunday (April 07), from eastern Odisha state, after testing it for the first time in 2010.

The surface-to-surface missile, capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to targets around 2,000 kilometres away, was tested from Balasore, a strategically located city in the state of Odisha.

The missile is 20 metres long and can carry a payload of one tonne.

Flight trials of the Agni II missile in May and November, 2009 from the same test range were not successful.
