    Trash report. Says A3 ready for deployment, SFC has alrady tested it. Shows pic of Dhanush didnt said anything about it. BO5/K15 is ready but didt said about its land version. One half year ago its.production started.

    On Agni-3 as per this BS article published in september last year, it is speculated that a missile group is being raised.

    Military to buy DRDO missiles worth Rs 1 lakh cr in 10 yrs | Business Standard

    Yes, On K-15 the article doesn't says anything on the land version, It just mentions the SLBM is not deployed yet as Arihant is not commissioned into service yet.

    And on Dhanush they do show its range, propellant, etc in a table...

    This NASIC report is from US, shows their threat perception and which country has what.

    we can get some info on the Chinese and Pakistani Missiles and their deployment status.

    I haven't seen anyone debunking claims of this report with actual facts, and what civilian media reports is rarely factual when it comes to military matters, so I prefer this report over what journos write.

    Open question to everyone ? Is FAS more reliable than StrategyPage, etc. ?

    What are the comparable sources of repute, at par with Jane's ?

    FAS is one of the most reliable sources when it comes to nuclear weapons. If you are from China, India, or Pakistan and you want to believe that your country has ICBM's capable of carrying 10 MIRVs then you probably do not want to read FAS. Hans Kristensen usually pours cold water on hothead nationalists who want to believe everything what mainstream media tells them, and that is one reason why many people in different forums dislike FAS.

    That article itself is based on NASIC 2013 report and if people want to file a complaint you can do it here.
