By SP's Special Correspondent
 

February 2, 2015: Kept under wraps so far, it is now known that the Indian Navy successfully test-fired the indigenously developed ship launched ballistic missile Dhanush on Nov 14 last year for the first time during the night from a warship INS Subhadra anchored about 45 km off the coast of Puri and Paradip in Odisha. Sources confirm the test was successful. The Dhanush is a ship-launched version of the Prithvi-II ballistic missile with a range of 350 km. The test was conducted from the INS Subhadra by the Strategic Forces Command (SFC). The Dhanush is capable of deploying a tactical nuclear warahead, in addition to conventional warheads deployed on the Prithvi series of missiles. Project Dhanush was sanctioned by the Indian Navy to integrate and demonstrate the feasibility of launching variant of Prithvi from a ship. The translation from the technology demonstrator to weaponisation configuration, and induction of the Dhanush weapon system was completed with the successful 'Acceptance Test Firing' conducted by the navy, and after achieving all the planned mission objectives. The salient features and achievements under the project include.
