According to reports in the Indian media, the ‘nuclear capacity’ ‘Agni’ rocket of the Indian army failed its first night test on Saturday and crashed into the sea shortly after launch.
After the first phase of separation, the rocket suddenly collapsed into the sea and was launched from the island of Abdul Kalam off the coast of Orissa, India.
When something went wrong, the rocket entered a starting flight path of about 115 kilometers. It deviated from the flight path and forced the task force to end the flight halfway.
From the beginning of the mission to the first phase of separation, everything went smoothly according to the mission plan. But suddenly it started to behave abnormally. ”
It added: “This may be due to a metallurgical defect.” The rocket can carry conventional warheads and warheads that weigh up to 1.5 tonnes and was introduced in the inventory as early as 2011.
Initial investigations showed that the rocket had ‘manufacturing defects’.
Weapon systems produced in India are often poorly manufactured and low-maintenance standards are common in the Indian army.
The Indian army claims that the Blaze III ballistic missile has the ability to tow conventional warheads and warheads of up to 1.5 tonnes, with a reported range of more than 2,000 kilometers.
Two other variants of the rocket, Agni-I and Agni-II, have failed in previous developments and user tests. Agni-II did not achieve the desired results during the first night trial in 2009.
