BHUBANESWAR, May 26 (IANS): India Saturday successfully test-fired its medium-range Akash surface-to-air missile for the second time in three days from a defence base in Odisha, an official said.

The indigenously-developed missile, which has a range of 27 km and an effective ceiling of 15 km, was test-fired from the Integrated Test Range of Chandipur in the costal district of Balasore, around 230 km from here.

The 700-kg missile can carry a 60-kg warhead.

"It was a developmental trial," M.V.K.V. Prasad, director of the test range, told IANS.

The Aakash missile was successfully tested from the same base Thursday.
