New Delhi’s armed forces have test-fired a long-range nuclear-capable ballistic missile while a defense official calls the test successful.

The army on Tuesday tested the surface-to-surface Agni II missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to targets around 2,000 km (1,200 miles) away.

The missile range can be increased to 3000 km (1,900 miles) by reducing the load, sources said
