NEW DELHI (AP) — India has for the second time successfully test-fired a nuclear-capable missile that can strike the major Chinese cities of Beijing and Shanghai.
Ravi Gupta, a spokesman for the Defence Research and Development Organisation, said Sunday's test of the Agni V brought the missile a step closer to being inducted into India's arsenal at some point in 2014 or 2015.
The missile has a range of 5,000 kilometers (3,100 miles) and was first successfully tested in April last year. It's seen as a boost to India's efforts to counter China's regional dominance and become an Asian power in its own right.
China is far ahead of India in the missile race, with intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching anywhere in India.
