Nirbhay tested successfully

India successfully flight-tested its indigenous Nirbhay (the fearless) sub-sonic cruise missile, which can carry nuclear warheads to a strike range of 1,000-km, from integrated test range at Chandipur off the Odisha coast on Monday.

The Nirbhay, which is touted to be India’s answer to the US Tomahawk missiles as well as an effective counter to Pakistan’s Babur land-attack cruise missile, has been in the development stage for over a decade. At least three of its six tests till now have failed.
