The most powerful weapon in India’s arsenal is to be involved. Soon the first batch of inter-continental ballistic missile system ‘Agni -5’ will be handed over to Indian forces. This will increase the strength of the Indian Army. The significance of this missile for India is that it can be estimated from the fact that full fire in the scope of Agni -5’s fire comes from China. In such a situation, any area of China can be targeted from Agni-5.
Official sources said that this missile system capable of carrying 5,000 kilometer range can also carry nuclear weapons. The missile system is set to be included in the Strategic Forces Command (SFC). He said that many tests are being done before the SFC is handed over to the most state-of-the-art weapon in the country.
Defense experts say that this missile can target any area of China including cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong. Let us tell you that last month Agni -5 was successfully tested from the coast of Odisha. Sources say that many other tests are going to happen in the next few weeks before being included in the SFC.
Better to carry nuclear weapons
An official associated with the Agni-5 program said, “It is a strategic asset that will serve as a deterrent for other countries. We are in the final stages of this strategic project. “He said that this is the most modern weapon in its series, which has Modern Technologies for navigation and its ability to carry nuclear weapons is far better than other missile systems.
Sources have said that the first batch of Agni -5 will be handed over to the SFC soon. However, he refused to give more details about this project. In the warlike fleet of India, this missile is being included in such times when security challenges from neighboring countries are persisted.
