For the fourth time, Indian cruise missile Nirbhay failed to be a success
Since March 2013, this was the fourth test of the subsonic missile, which as the previous test, fail yet again.
The much-bragged-about “Nirbhay” was designed to carry nuclear warheads to a strike range of 1,000-km.
The missile had to be destroyed in mid-air after it deviated from its flight-path along the coast in Bay of Bengal soon after launch from the Integrated Test Range at Balasore off the Odisha coast around noon.
“The test was an utter failure, with the missile veering to the right within two minutes of take-off,” TOI reported, quoting a source.
While the missile’s first test in March 2013 had completely failed, the second one was dubbed as “a partial success” in October 2014. But the third test in October 2015 and the one on Wednesday also failed miserably and completely.
