    Prithvi 3 is a 2 stage solid fueled missile with a 600km range . It has not yet been test fired . Unlike the previous 2 prithivis its main role is as a tactical missile and not a nuclear strategic missile .
    It's analogus to the Iskander.
    Prahaar probably wont be inducted as it's role is already covered by the Brahmos block 1 .

    Brahmos shot is far more expensive compared to Prahaar shot. Range is not the only criteria.
