India - Agni Missile III Ready For Induction in Indian Army –

Agni Means Fire

Agni Missile is developed under the IGMDP Integrated Guided Missile Development Program which is started by Government of India in the year 1980 is managed by DRDO.

DRDO - Defense Research and Development Organization.

The main purpose of the IGMDP program was to develop a missile in the following categories.

1. a short-range surface-to-air missile (codenamed Trishul),

2. a medium-range surface-to-air missile (codenamed Akash),

3. a third-generation anti-tank guided missile (codenamed Nag),

4. a short-range surface-to-surface missile (codenamed Prithvi),

5. An intermediate-range surface-to-surface missile (codenamed Agni).

6. a ballistic missile (codenamed Sagarika)

7. An inter-continental-ballistic-missile (codenamed Surya) range 12,000 km.

Agni Missile is an IRBM type of missile. Pakistan also has this type of missile named as
Ghauri-III (3,500 km) and Shaheen-III (4,500 km)

IRBM - An intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) is a ballistic missile with a range of 3,000-5,500 km (1,865-3,420 miles)

1. Short-range ballistic missile (SRBM)

2. Medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM)

3. Intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) range above 5000km

4. long-range ballistic missile (LRBM)

The Agni I has a range of 700–800 km (SRBM)

Agni-II as a range of 2,000–2,500 km. (MRBM)

Agni III has a range of 3500 upto 5000 km (IRBM)

Agni V will have range 5000 to 6000 km Agni 5 is sometimes refereed as Agni III star.

Agni V will be in ICBM category which is designed for nuclear weapons delivery which can carry one or more nuclear warheads.

Does India will make Agni 4 missile ?
Does India will make Agni 6 missile ?

From Agni III DRDO jumped now there will not be any Agni 4 missile but Agni V.
Also there will not be any Agni 6 missile as Agni V is IRBM missile with the 5000 km range, and when the range is above 5000 km a missile becomes
Intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) range above 5000km.

With the Agni III missile now India got the power to hit in the heart at Pakistan or china .Agni III can hit Beijing and Shanghai.
a short-range surface-to-surface missile (codenamed Prithvi) is also capable to target and hit Pakistan.
Agni missile III and V are mainly develop to control the rising military power of china .

It is reported that Agni III has nearly achieved the accuracy to hit the enemy target, the circular error probable CEP lies in the range of 40 meters.

As Agni III success is a great achievement but problem with the Agni III is that it will not destroy more than one or two buildings when it will hit the enemy target.

India needs to work fast on the Agni V as well as Surya missile.
The Agni-V will bring the whole of Asia, 70% of Europe and other regions under its strike range.

Agni-V will be able to carry multiple warheads and will have countermeasures against Anti-ballistic missile systems.

Now Agni III is ready to be inducted in Indian army after the success of fourth test fire.

Agni III Brief Information –

1. Manufacturer - Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL)

2. Unit cost -Rs 250-350 million (INR) or $ 5.6-7.9 million (USD)

3. Weight - 55,000 kg

4. Length – 17m

5. Diameter – 2.0m

6. Warhead – Strategic nuclear 15kt to 250 KT

It is expected that in December 2010 or in the month of January 2011 India may test fire Agni 5 which will have range of more than 5000km and which will be able to
Target China's northernmost city of Harbin, Harbin is the capital of China's Heilongjiang Province.
Agni V is very travel friendly, road mobile, will be transported quickly from one place to another
