    Good good news, But i still believe that cansisterised road portability is the key to true domination that we will only achieve with the Agni V

    Since it is cansisterised, i guess a silo stored version will be deployed in NE.

    That's great. But I am surprised how come DRDO went all low profile on the induction of Agni-III. They usually love taking credit for stuff that is decades away and this time they actually did it so quietly. Anyways, I feel that we should move most of our Agni-IIIs in NE states. Ladakh, Arunachal, Uttarakhand, Himachal, Arunachal and Sikkim are a start. We need at least a 100 of them in ready condition.

    Its not DRDO that always takes credit its the state owned factories that a talk too much.

    Or the media it self doing their BS reporting , after having one interview they barely understand
    Most of it is having media not know what they are talking about , but they report anyway

    we are not in the state of war, just 20 would do, yeah all over North East in railway tunnels, even some of them in MP. Remember A3 is only for special package. BTW wont be bad idea to have dummies in equal numbers to fool our enemy.

    Number of missiles is directly proportional to number of warheads. No point having 100 A3s when our total arsenal is 80-100 warheads. What will be on phritvi, A1 and A2 and also the IAF Jags?

    please remember that all the agni varients can also be used in conventional strike role.also india's warheads are kept separate from missile in order to survive in case of a nuclear first strike.in case of any possible conflict with china both china and india will try to use it's ballistic missile's in conventional role as both have no first use policy.

    sir, A3 is bloody expensive to be used for conventional strike, therefore it only meant to deliver only special package.

    yes agni 3 is expensive but in case of hostilities with china we have nothing else in our arsenal to target the major chinese cities and military infrastructure(in conventional sense).we do need a russian raguda type cruise missile with 3000km+ range which the chinese have copied.
