    India tested K-5 SLBM. India now capable of launching Nukes by Land, Air and Sea.

    Update:

    6000 Km max range.

    Will be integrated into Arihant ?

    14th launch. :cool2:

    Lifted off from submarine platform ? after one hour countdown from undisclosed location?

    Followed exact predicted trajectory and hit the target accurately, as witnessed by the reporter himself on radar.

    Many unique features which can not be disclosed :thumb:.

    It would be important to know if its fired from a Submarine or under water pontoon, would hate if from later

    700 Km range.

    Will be integrated into Arihant ?

    14th launch. :cool2:

    Lifted off from submarine platform ? after one hour countdown from undisclosed location?

    re: India successfully tests submarine launched ballistic missile

    IIRC, some official had said that the next rest will be from a sub and not a pontoon. We had a discussion here speculating either there could be a test from the Arihant itself which validates both the Arihants integration as well as the technology of the missile.

    IF it was fired from another sub, then it means A LOT MORE than just final missile. It means India has modified more subs capable of launching a nuke missile and we don't have to rely only on the Arihant. May be the Kilos have been modified. That is wonderful news all round.

    They keep changing the name, K-5 = Medium Range ~ 3000Km to 5000Km (?) :D depending on the payload.

    re: India successfully tests submarine launched ballistic missile

    So in essence it is K-4 rechristened as K-5?

    or maybe K-4 Mk II(wiki)

    re: India successfully tests submarine launched ballistic missile

    In December it was reported that K-15 will be test fired soon and will be final development trial after which it will be deployed operational. But PTI reporting "median range K-5 test fired and ready to be deployed on Arihant".

    I think DRDO wala's are playing with intelligence of people here, noobs.
    :notsure:

    re: India successfully tests submarine launched ballistic missile

    Time to change the thread title again. The missile is named BO-5.

    Re: India successfully tests submarine launched ballistic missile

    The report by NDTV makes no sense to me. Either this is a new missile or K15 Sagarika. The name K15 was given by the DRDO itself. BO5 is not even a name to "rechristian".

    Kuch to golmaal hai bhai.

    6 mins of flight time gives us some clue about the range.It's definitely not 700 kms.

    NDTV report suggests that the missile was fired from a pontoon. Another point to pick up is that it said the missile is ready to be fired from Indian "submarines". When they say "submarines" are they talking of future or are they saying that this missile can be fired from current Indian subs? Which means one of the Kilos? Could India have modified this sub for a nuke missile? I don't think so but these various reports confuses me. Well maybe that's what they intend to do. Confuse!

    Re: India successfully tests submarine launched ballistic missile

    More confusion . Sarasvat says K-5. But again notice that he says it can be fired from various platforms including Arihant. What other platforms if this is an SLBM?

    ======•==


    NEW DELHI: Moving a step closer to completing its nuclear triad, India today successfully test fired a ballistic missile, with a strike range of around 1500 kilometres, from an underwater platform in Bay of Bengal.

    "The medium range K-5 ballistic missile was test fired successfully today from an underwater pontoon and all parameters of the test firing were met," DRDO chief V K Saraswat told PTI from the undisclosed test area.

    Nuclear triad is the ability to fire nuclear-tipped missiles from land, air and sea.

    Saraswat said that the development phase of the K-5 missile, which is a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), was over and it was now ready for deployment on various platforms including the indigenous nuclear submarine INS Arihant which is under development.

    Re: India successfully tests submarine launched ballistic missile

    Speed of sound = 343.2m/s

    Hypersonic = minimum Mach6 = 2059.2m/s

    6 min = 360s

    So it flew a minimum distance of 741312m = 741.3Km

    :hmm:
