IndiaTtest-Fires Nuke-Capable Agni-I Ballistic Missile

India on sunday successfully test-fired its indigenously developed, nuclear-capable, short range ballistic missile (SRBM) Agni-1 from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Wheeler Island, about 100 km from here off the Orissa coast. "It was a fantastic mission carried out by the Indian Army. The test-fire of the Agni-I missile met all parameters," director of ITR S P Dash told a news agency. Blasted off from a rail mobile launcher, the surface-to-surface, single-stage missile, powered by solid propellants, roared into the sky trailing behind a column of orange and white thick smoke at about 1305 hours.

"After piercing the sky, the missile re-entered the earth's atmosphere and its dummy warhead impacted in the waters of the Bay of Bengal in the down range," a defence official said from the launch site, adding that the guidance and re-entry system worked well. User of the missile, the strategic force command of the Indian Army, executed the entire launch operation with the necessary logistic support being provided by the Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) at the integrated test range (ITR).

Weighing 12 tonnes, the 15 metre tall Agni-1, which can carry payloads weighing up to one tonne, has already been inducted into the Indian Army. The Agni-1 has a range of upto 700 kms. "The command chain has been validated. This is a major step in the preparedness of the Army in using this weapon system. We have reached the full range capability of the missile," said a DRDO scientist. The entire trajectory of today's mission was tracked by a battery of sophisticated radars, telemetry and electro-optic systems and a naval ship anchored in the impact point.

The command, operation, integration, execution and networking for the launch was done by the Army. India successfully test-fired two nuclear-capable medium-range ballistic missiles Prithvi-II and Dhanush in quick succession from different locations off the Orissa coast yesterday. Dhanush was test-fired from INS Subhadra, about 50 nautical miles from Puri, while Prithvi-11 was test-fired from a mobile launcher from the ITR. Prithvi-II has a range of 295 km while Dhanush, the naval version of Prithvi, can cruise upto 350 km. On March 22, the super-sonic cruise missile BrahMos, jointly developed by India and Russia, was successfully test-launched from INS Ranvir off the Orissa coast.

nothing special we have done such things in 2000.
long live PAKISTAN,
PAKISTAN ZINDABAD.

nothing special but this missile are Indian made but yours is copy of Chinese or north Korea .it is a big difference

nothing matter as there is nothing really made in pakistan

Naidu,

when u say big difference, are u talking about quality?

Any ways this missle is really
"Palkistan- Specific" according to the newspapers.

Naidu!!!!
there is a saying dont work hard work smart!!!!!! its great to see indians reinventing the wheel over and over again!!!! when u have alemon in hand make a lemonade thats the trick of the trade!!!!
coz india also made arjunk!!!! tried to WLR !!!when u were even getting from US u said we will make it our selves 20 years down the road u still dont have any WLR ...then LCA( last chance aircraft) made to replace MiG21 but now due to delays u r going with MRCA which means u r undermining ur own project!!!!! we dont reinvent we r just using the products and improving it!!!! example exorcist ( antiship) harpoon was modified!!!! we reversed tomahawk !!! and got BABER thats one of the most accurate cruise missles!!!!! same goes for other missle systems!!!! the thing is we dont have to lie how better are nukes r or make fake reports about the yield!!!!
we looked at our requirements now we have thunder!!!!! so best of luck to all indian in reinventing the wheel over and over again!!!!

cont....
naidu one more example!!!! look at ur airforce trainers!!!! u made it ur self but now still u have to import those AJT from england!!!! we did joint ventures we had K8 thats also used by many nations including egypt!!!! u made it urself deepak ( grounded ) kiran( grounded ) after the crash during vayu shakti!!!!!

What are you talking about SJ? is that SJ a prefix for Stupid Jihadi? I sure hope so, because you are one funny inbred !


But anyways,

LCA is coming up, and the government and Airforce have outlined orders for up to 250 LCA's. We need to develop better technologies to impliment into the project.


We just don't buy Failed Projects from China (JF-17) and claim it is better than an F-16.


Pakistan is bankrupt man, your nation is defeated economically and militarity.


UPI reports over 30,000 beggar Paki soldiers have died since 2002 and only 11,000 Militants killed. Basically meaning, 1 Taliban = 3 Beggar Paki Soldiers.

Don't belive me, heres the link.http://www.upi.com/Top_News/Analysis/2010/03/29/Commentary-Pakistan-army-Back-on-top/UPI-90891269866386/


Also your K-8 trainers are garbage. Only third world nations choose to purchase them.


Next what is this talk about re-inventing the wheel? Pakista can;t even invent a wheel, literally, Pakis have to buy it from China.


Pakistans ballistic missles are actually scud missles, with some third rate homing devices. No other country has ever witnessed the proper trajectory of Pakistans Missle tests, basically impling that all Pakistans tests are failures.

India actually has videos of Missles hitting targets and they also show their trjectories.


Go begg Beggar. LCA is made of compisites to reduce Radar Signature, and it will be powered by the best weatern engine, while JF-17 is a Metal junk plane, usuing a Russian engine with approval from India.


JF-17 infact is soo garbage, the Chinese don't even want it in their own airforce, and they rather fly their R-E Mig 21s.
