India is finally gearing up for the maiden test firing of its submarine launch of longest range and nuclear capable ballistic missile code‐named K‐4 from an underwater platform off the Vizag coast by end of next month. The missile flies in hypersonic speed and is the world’s best weapon in this class. The much‐awaited test which was scheduled for September was postponed due to technological developments. The indigenously developed 3,500 ‐km range missile has been planned to be test launched from a pontoon (replica of a submarine) positioned nearly 50 feet under the sea surface.
