      So will they carry along the highway?
      Or are you planning to lay a rocket on another car?
      And so the feeling that they are taking her to bury on the front carriage.
      This feeling is aggravated by pepper walking near the cabin.

          Agni (Skt. अग्नि, akin to Lat. ignis, Russian fire) is a “family” of Indian ballistic missiles of various ranges (from small to medium) developed as part of the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program of the Ministry defense of India. These missiles are a means of delivery of nuclear weapons of the Indian Armed Forces
          At the beginning of 2015, the Agni family of missiles included 4 deployed options and one in the stage of upcoming adoption (the specified launch range is a reference and depends on the mass of the warhead):
          Agni - a test version, the first launch took place in May 1989
          Agni-1 - short-range ballistic missile: 500 - 700 km
          Agni-2 - medium-range ballistic missile: 2000 km
          Agni-3 - medium-range ballistic missile: 2500 - 3500 km
          Agni-4 - 2500 - 3500 km, possibly an interim test version of Agni-3
          Agni-5 - ICBM: 5000 - 6000 km, the first launch took place on April 19, 2012.

        You, that is the beauty of India. Until they take them to all the cities of India, they won’t think about the launch car. + laughing hi

      India’s biggest friends are Angles, it’s very necessary to count with them all, but the distance India-England is 7tys.km, so a little refinement of this FIRE5 remains and remember them suppressing sepoys ...

    Somehow somehow this rocket looks strange. Is that small and red front here a warhead? Here's how to start straight from the semitrailer ...

    Yes, the Indians are a terrible force to them and the rockets do not need them to be distributed to them in Kalash; they will capture the entire Middle East and the igil will begin to bow to the brahmaputra. Pakistan bothers them there, too, there are a lot of them.
    I think Indians with a rocket would not bother if not a threat from Pakistan

    The potential in rocket science in India and in North Korea is about the same in range. For greater range, all they need is: create a joint venture with TRANSFER OF RUSSIAN TECHNOLOGIES. The hope that this will not happen is still there, there should be a limit in technology transfer.

    India is a very interesting country, in the parade of which can be super modern rockets and camels decorated with flowers which are used by border guards.

    This is the gearing of commentators, how to explain?
    Envy, contempt? Or are you afraid that India will sooner or later get ahead of Russia or become its competitor in the export of weapons and the delivery of goods into orbit?
    Respect for the first achievements of the country, which is not the most aggressive towards Russia, do you have a drop?
    By the way, India produces twice as many cars as Russia. Will it be pleasant to you if the Indians begin to make fun of the Russian auto industry?

    I noticed one oddity: it says a rocket 17m, 17t, and a trawl on which it is being transported with a carrying capacity of 70t. What is the excessive load capacity? So the rocket is harder.

      Somewhere Indians are deceiving us.

      Yes, no, it's just a disguise from the launcher removed.

    This is not a launcher. This is a transporter
