India’s Agni missile series is a major achievement. The Agni V – intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) with a nuclear warhead is the latest development and the most advanced missile by Indian. This has a range of over 5,000 kilometers so at least half the world is in its range – all of China, Pakistan, Japan Africa and even Europe. One final test remains before it is ready for use, and after its successful completion would be recruited in to the armed forces. India will join the only 4 other countries with such long range missiles who are USA, Russia, China and UK.
