Bhubaneswar: India on Friday tested its nuclear-capable ballistic missile Dhanush from a naval ship in the Bay of Bengal in Odisha, an official said. The missile was fired from a naval ship somewhere between Puri and Visakhapatnam as part of the training exercise of the Indian Navy. "The test was successful," Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) spokesperson Ravi Kumar Gupta told a news agency. Dhanush is a naval version of the nuclear-capable ballistic missile Prithvi. It has a range of 350 km. India tests Dhanush ballistic missile I don't understand one thing. What is the point of testing dhanush now when we have already inducted Brahmos as the staple missile for the navy.
