    Dear Indians. Please take full responsibility for the operation of ballistic missiles. So that they do not fall before you reach the target, like airplanes.

      Well, the Indians launched a drone on Mars (sucessfully, it still works) and the second is being prepared.
      And they sent a mission to the moon, albeit having lost the landing page. And their accident rate is low on pH - so close to the Americans.


      Therefore, their rockets are normal.

            To go nuts. That's what the fucking PR means, I haven’t even heard about it.
            Only in vain did you call him a drone. This is the satellite of Mars.

      distance from India to Britain -7.5 thousand km Britain is the first target for Indian ammunition, it is necessary that Indian missiles reach England, how to give for all the bullying, this will be historically true.

        Their first goal is Pakistan. The second is China. And in front of the British, they both fanned, and will continue to fawn. What is at the political level, what is at home. It is enough to come to India and see how they treat British tourists.

              neither Pakistan nor China were the exploiters of India, they did not take out the wealth of this country and they did not destroy the people and culture of India. India doesn’t need to arm itself against China, but there is nothing to share with Pakistan, it’s the same people, but England, as it was the historical enemy has remained, therefore, it is not necessary to have anything in common with this bloodthirsty country.

        Indians left the official language English. And all the state. , judicial, financial structures have left everything like the English.
        Their billionaires have English citizenship. Hundreds of thousands of Indians are the middle class in England.
        The British are highly respected.

      And their mother, the British, who divided the country into three states, is to blame. Special for further mess. Like Africa shared - on the line.

        "Divide and rule." Wisdom that has been working since ancient times. The USSR and the social camp also broke up into a bunch of independent states that hate each other. But now with each of them it is now possible to work and tune in your own direction, while it was difficult to do business with the USSR, he was too strong.

    Here everyone is in a hurry, “sword” is more powerful, more authentic to get hold of! It would not hurt to learn how to care for him, as it should! To use it is not just a wave, but in such a way as to destroy what is needed, but not to hurt too much.

    At present, the Strategic Forces Command of India is armed with ballistic missiles from Agni-1 to Agni-4 with a range of 700-3,5 thousand km.

    Given that their launch pad is located in the north-west of the country -
    Pakistan completely covers, and China - half. Naturally, this does not completely suit their security in the region.

    The entry into service of the Agni-5 ballistic missile with a flight range of up to 5,5 thousand km is expected. All missiles are capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

    In this case, China completely “overlaps”.
    And this is the height of their aspirations for today. yes

    In the photo in the note, the launch of an Agni-III intermediate-range ballistic missile ("Agni-3"). Starting order of 48 tons. Abandoned - up to 2 tons. It can carry either one 200-300 ct warhead or hwc with several warheads with a capacity of up to 50 ct.
    The range is estimated to be from 3000 to 5000 km, although experts are more inclined to believe that it has a range of 3900-4000 km. Hindus say that with new modernized engines and one lightweight warhead (50 kt), it can fly up to 6000 km
