NEW DELHI, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) -- India Tuesday successfully test- fired a home-made nuclear-capable Prithvi-II surface-to-surface missile from a test range in the eastern state of Odisha, sources said.

"The test-firing, carried out for the Indian Army as part of training exercise, has been successful. The missile was launched from the Integrated Test Range in Chandipur in the state's Balasore district under the monitoring of defense scientists," the sources said.

The single-stage liquid-fuelled missile, with a strike range of 350 kms, is capable of carrying up to 1,000 kg of warhead.

Prithvi-II was last successfully test-fired in December last year.
