    This was tested by SFC. Hopefully we will see MIRV test from A3/5 soon.

    Huh?? I guess a 3.5-5km range missile test is as routine as PSLV now a days. Such a boring day.

    On a lighter note.

    At this rate of missile testing every month(Be it from DRDO or SFC), we will be also cleaning out Baki arsenal at the same time. ha ha Good plan :thumb:
    We know for a fact now that they will reciprocate with some test or the other.:rofl:

    We have 100's of Prithvi and Agni-I that need to be phased out and replaced with Prahaar/Brahmos/Shaurya. Keep testing away.

    I think they using old Pritivi's for ABM testing, and old Agni series can be used to test the Operational capability of AAD/PDV

    Its exactly what we are doing. Prithvi is also used as target in ABM tests. Tests will also be helpful in keeping the SFC fully trained and operationally ready.

    Not only that prithvi tests are used to test new subsystems and new concept, so keep on eye on prithvi tests.

    Latest A-III video. Is it a mistake by the news channels or did A-III morph into A-5 without trusses.
