    I like this missile and we (Indians) need to produce it in mass. The sub-continent is ours then.
    I can capture half of the world with this missile.

    It is not the K-5 it is K-15 code maned BO5, the SLBM version of the hypersonic Shaurya missile..

    This BO5 do not follows a pure ballistic trajectory rather have a controlled low-altitude flight profile, virtually a fusion between Cruise-Missile and Ballistic-Missile which causes the reduction of its detection by any missile tracking system and also causes the reduction of predictability of its flight trajectory.

    It also capable of perform maneuvers during warhead delivery which causes the farther reduction of the predictability of its flight trajectory.

    The reduction of the predictability of the flight trajectory of a missile makes it more immune to Missile Defense Systems.
