Nuclear shadow grows across planet: India tests its first intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking China

April 19, 2012NEW DELHI - India has launched a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile able to carry a nuclear warhead, say media. The locally-developed Agni-V missile was originally scheduled to have been launched on Wednesday in the eastern state of Orissa. Defense officials had delayed the launch until Thursday because of heavy lightning in the area, BBC informs. The missile has a range of more than 5,000km (3,100 miles), within range of targets in China. Analysts say the Agni (meaning “fire” in Hindi and Sanskrit) missile family is to be the cornerstone of India’s missile-based nuclear deterrent. The missiles are among the country’s most sophisticated weapons. In 2010, India successfully test-fired Agni-II, an intermediate-range ballistic missile with a range of more than 2,000km (1,250 miles). Defense analyst Rahul Bedi says a successful test flight of the Agni-V missile, which is capable of delivering a single 1.5-ton warhead deep inside nuclear rival China’s territory, would strengthen India’s nuclear deterrence once it comes into service by 2014-15. It is 17.5m tall, solid-fuelled, has three stages and a launch weight of 50 tons. It has cost more than 2.5bn rupees ($480m; £307m) to develop. Only China, Russia, France, the US and UK have such long-range missiles. Israel is thought to possess them. –Focus News

    India and China are BRICS countries and they are working together to get rid of U.S. influence and USD – there is no reason for India to attack China.
