India tested Agni-5 missile capable of carrying a nuclear charge


The rocket is capable of hitting targets at a distance of 5 thousand. Km. Thus, its radius of action covers, in particular, the largest part of the territories in the north of China, Indian media say.

The rocket was launched from the landfill on the island of Abdul Kalam (Orissa).

Today we conducted a successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile Agni-V
- The media cite the words of the Minister of Defense of India Nirmala Sitharaman.

India currently has four types of Agni rockets: Agni-1 with a range of 700 kilometers, Agni-2 - 2 thousands of kilometers, Agni-3 and Agni-4 - from 2,5 thousands to 3,5 thousands kilometers It is expected that the Agni-5 with a range of more than 5 thousand kilometers will go into service after the tests now underway. The Agni-6 rocket is also being developed with a range of up to 10 thousands of kilometers and the ability to launch from a submarine.

      Something all China and China ... the Indians have another splinter Pakistan ... moreover, this splinter also overthrows ... so I would primarily consider it was a conflict with them rather than with China ...

        because without China and the USA, Pakistan does not pull against the Indians.

        Pakistan does not need a missile with a range of 5000.

      - Nothing, on occasion, the Shiva dance on the enemy’s heads will dance.
      India actually had nuclear weapons among the first on Earth.
      Even in Mohenjo-Daro there are traces of these "dances".
      And our missiles in Cap-yare oh how they danced before! And now sometimes they dance like that after launch - you don’t know where to run!

        - Well, and overlaps. So what?
        India is our ally. Both against China and against Islamic countries.
        It is somehow against the USA and Israel.
        They do not climb into this storm. Although England-hate.
        There is a reason. Remember.

          so-so ... ally. no more than China. Do we even have a military assistance agreement with them? I generally prefer the position of Alexander 3: in addition to the army, navy (and VKS), Russia has no allies.

    India, like all owners of nuclear weapons, strive for the development of its carriers, surprisingly modest, if possible, achievements

    Hindus are so "attentive" to technology that their nuclear missiles are most dangerous to India itself.
