India has successfully tested its most powerful missile Agni-5 on the 7th day of skirmish with Chinese troops in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh. India conducted a night trial of the Agni-5 ballistic missile on Thursday. This nuclear-powered missile successfully destroyed its target by going 5 thousand kilometers away. Now the whole of Asia, half of Europe, Russia and Ukraine as well as the whole of China including the capital Beijing have come within the range of Agni-5.

Not only the timing of this test, the quality is also very special. Actually, this test has been done with new technology and equipment. In the new form, the missile will be much lighter than before. The test was conducted with the aim of testing the new techniques and equipment used in making the missile. Defence sources have revealed that this trial has proved that if needed, the firepower of Agni-5 can be increased.

The country’s most powerful missile, Agri-5, is India’s long-range surface-to-surface ballistic missile, which has the power to destroy enemy targets 5000 km away. The whole of China comes in this range. Some reports claim that it can hit up to 8 thousand kilometers. This missile can fly with a nuclear warhead of 1500 kg. Agni-5 is India’s first and only intercontinental ballistic missile, developed by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO). It is one of the long range missiles available with India.

The weight of the Agni-5 missile is 50 thousand kg. It is 17.5 meters long. A nuclear weapon weighing 1500 kg can be installed on top of it. This missile has three stage rocket boosters, which fly with solid fuel. It covers a distance of 8.16 km in one second. It attacks the enemy at a speed of 29 thousand 401 kilometers per hour. Agni-5 can also be launched from road and rail platforms. In such a situation, it can be easily deployed in any corner of the country. Weather conditions also have no effect on it.
