    The Russian Navy will shortly put in service the Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles, Navy Commander-in-Chief Victor Chirkov said.

    We Wish India can develop such technologies where by our enemies are afraid to challenge us.

    Bulava reportdly does not have a BUS but uses each warhead which has its own guidance and porpulsion system and can fly towards the target autonomously.

    RS-24 and Bulava uses the same warhead as both at developed by MITT , the real breakthrough is not only in warhead/RV design but also decoys.

    The technologies we have in Agni-3 and Agni-5 are good enough to counter our potential enemies which is China and Pakistan.

    The advanced technologies that Russia develops in Bulava or other ICBM are more to counter the massive ABM systems planned in Europe and CONUS by US.

    Honestly no one in Delhi is think of going to war with US or NATO and nor our nuclear potential is capable to do that so we dont really need these technologies.

    Realistically speaking our nuclear deterrent is revolved around fighting Pakistan and deterring China .

    I will give Russia a lot of credit they did not give on this missile after many failures for years.

    Yes, and our current arsenal is more than enough to deter them. But technology keeps changing, and if we do not continue to upgrade at this pace, we'll suddenly be behind. Plus, we also need to deter the faraway nations that might have any interest in taking India.

    Re:

    I think by having such unbeatable warheads you defeat your enemy psychologically ! No one wishes to use the second strike capability.

    China has lots of money sooner or later they can copy or develop such warheads. Second strike capabiliy makes sense only if you manage to save your cities and people from nukes. I think it is useless to nuke your enemy after getting completely anihilated. Hence Bulava type missiles are game changers.
