Agni-V Launch

India successfully test-fires Agni-V, its longest-range surface-to-surface ballistic missile. The missile has a range of 5,000 km and can reach much of China. It is the backbone of India's nuclear triad, which comprises the Prithvi short-range ballistic missiles and fighter jets. The Agni series, which also comprises the Prithvi short-range ballistic missiles and fighter planes, is the backbone of nuclear weapons delivery. 

India has successfully test-fired Agni-V, its longest-range surface-to-surface ballistic missile, on Wednesday.


"On October 27, 2021, at around 1950 hrs, a successful launch of the surface-to-surface ballistic missile Agni-5 was carried out from APJ Abdul Kalam Island, Odisha," the Defence Ministry said.


The three-stage solid-fuelled engine missile has a range of 5,000 km and can reach much of China. It has already been cauterised, making it easier to handle and use.


The Agni series, which also comprises the Prithvi short-range ballistic missiles and fighter planes, is the backbone of nuclear weapons delivery. With the ballistic missile submarine INS Arihant conducting deterrence patrols, India has completed its nuclear triad and operationalized its second-strike capability.
