K-15 missile
India successfully test-fired the underwater ballistic missile, K-15 (code-named B05), off the Vishakhapatnam coast, marking en end to a series of developmental trials. In its twelfth flight trial, the 10-metre tall Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missile (SLBM) lifted off from a pontoon, rose to an altitude of 20 km and reached a distance of about 700 km as it splashed down in the waters of the Bay of Bengal near the pre-designated target point. India is only the fifth country to have such a missile — the other four are the United States, Russia, France and China. India is also developing K-4 missile with a range of 3,000 km.
