Agni1 launch video and discussion 12.12.2012
India on Wednesday successfully test-fired nuclear-capable, surface-to-surface Agni-1 ballistic missile for its full range of 700 km from the Wheeler Island, off Odisha.
The single-stage, solid-propelled missile was launched by the personnel of the Strategic Forces Command at 8.15 a.m. from a road mobile launcher. The entire operation was supervised by Defence Research and Development Organisation's missile technologists, who described the mission as a success and said that all the objectives were met.
Soon after its launch, the home-grown missile splashed down near the pre-designated target area in the Bay of Bengal with a high degree of accuracy as the radars along the coast and naval ship located down range tracked its flight path and recorded the terminal event.
The 15-metre-tall missile was picked up from the production lot for conducting the test-firing as part of regular exercise for the SFC personnel. Agni-1 weighs 12 tonnes and is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead of one tonne. The missile was developed following the Kargil conflict after the defence services perceived the need for such a version and has already been inducted into the Army.
Top DRDO scientists and Army officials were present to witness the mission. The SFC personnel carried out a successful launch of the same missile in July this year.

:balle::balle::balle: even singh will be proud of 12.12.12 at 12.12
This baby was specifically for Pakistan
It is powered by both solid and liquid propellants,
Even A3 has some liquid motor at RV.
frame 2.54 onwards, notice the size of fuel tank compare to Agni 3, it is for RV small rocket boosters.
I thought, for manouvering we replaced all small motors with solid pro...in agnis ! Agni 3 only ? Or any other agnis ?
with liquid motor it is easy to turn on and off those small motors to navigate and take anti BMD actions, solid fuel is not easy to control once ignited. (this is my understanding, i may be wrong on this)
You are correct. Solid motors cannot be turned off
@sayareakd Sir, What is the CEP of Agni -1. ?
The best estimate is 30-40 m.
Agni TD (Later renamed as Agni 2)
It has this early version of RV. It is controlled by fins.
this is Agni1 RV
watch frame 1.56, which shows gas spin generator. I suspect this is inside A1.
Agni 3 has all those things which has shown in the video above.
With the new tech being develop by local company, CEP of A1 will be reduce further.
With ISRAEL and INDIA planning a joint venture in developing a long range surface to surface missile, we are going to see more technology in the future.....
that is for cruise missile. Extension of Nirbhy missile range from 1000 to 3000km.
That is not so particularly given..... it has been given as "long range missiles" not "long range missile.....", that means a variety of missiles and not one particular missile.............
may be no harm in learning from them.
