外文标题：Prithvi-II successfully test fired
BALASORE(Odisha): India on Friday successfully test-fired its indigenously developed nuclear-capable Prithvi-II surface-to-surface missile, which has a strike range of 350 km, from a test range at Chandipur near here as part of a user trial by Army.
Defence sources said the state-of-the-art missile, which is capable of carrying 500 kg to 1000 kg of warheads, was test-fired from a mobile launcher in salvo mode from launch complex-3 of Integrated Test Range at about 10.40 hrs.
It is thrusted by liquid propulsion twin engines and uses advanced inertial guidance system with manoeuvring trajectory.
Describing the trial as "fully successful," ITR Director M V K V Prasad told PTI that the test was conducted by Strategic Force Command.

Which nuclear warhead is 500 kgs? or even 1000 kgs for that matter? Every nuclear weapon developed (real bombs not tactical warheads) weigh north of 1.5 tons. How is it possible that Prithvi is nuclear capable?
