India is working on a new tactical ballistic missile, Pransh, that is being developed by the Defence Research and Development Organization.
The powerful missile will be able to strike targets at a 200 kilometers range. As we know, DRDO had also developed the Prahaar missile, which had a range of 150 km.
The new missile is being developed because the army wanted a missile with more range.
The trials will start next year in 2021. DRDO will be offering it for user trials in 2 years. A single-stage solid-propellant engine will be used for propelling Pransh (a non-nuclear missile).
Once it is developed, DRDO also hopes to export Pransh to friendly nations.
This missile is outside the purview of the Missile Technology Control Regime. MTCR places restrictions on missiles that have a range of over 300 km.
