    A few sources also say that this was a new missile or missile was being tested in ultra depressed trajectory. Now I wonder why was it being tested in ultra depressed trajectory. :undecided::undecided::undecided:

    Maybe wanted to see if it can be used on our western border.:wink:;);)

    It brings two small data points
    1. Agni 2 is ~2000 km range
    2. Warning is for ~975 km
    Even if we try and say we will use the missile to fire only half the range, it still does not make much sense.. SFC tests are for different profiles but does not mean they will like to use an asset for testing what could be optimally fitting Agni 1 profile and all that to test a live batch.

    I certainly believe it was not Agni 2 and test results made public is also not a true story. For decades we have using low end missiles to test systems and sub component level perfection.. Again this "failed" test seems to be pointing in that direction

    Astra shows normally a 132 km approx distance in warnings..

    It's either a NGARM or a MRSAM firing...

    Other possibility is A2G munitions..

    If it is Nirbhay, this range does not look like a 1000 km range

    Missile can achieve 1000km range by doing loops in the specified area .

    To clear your doubts , below is the test area of Nirbhay in the Oct 17 , 2015 test ...... very similar to the current one .
