India has successfully launched the intermediate-range ballistic missile Agni- III from APJ Abdul Kalam Island off the coast of Odisha in a training session.

Agni-III is an intermediate-range ballistic missile with a range of 3000 -5000 km and is capable of delivering a nuclear warhead.

It was initially tested in 2006 which resulted in a failure as the missile fell into the sea shortly after launch.
