India has successfully tested a submarine launched ballistic missile completing its nuclear triad. The missile is believed to be the K-5 with a maximum range of 6000km. Additional details are unavailable due to the secrecy of this test.

This test propels India into the elite league of nations having similar class of missiles including US, France and China


  • It is a great achievement 0f Indian Navay

  • In the eve of this 63 rd Republic Day it is a greater salute
    to the mother land.’Jai Hind’

  • Its nice to know, India has completed its triad

  • india become slowly superpower.

  • 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.

    • No Noor Khan, you can’t, because this missile don’t exist (like the DF 41).

      • Indrajit Majumdar

        Work on the k-4 is on the way but this is the K-15-BO5, range is 800 km. capable of MARV (MAneuverable Reentry Vehicle) and low altitude controlled flight trajectory..

  • Indrajit Majumdar

    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.

  • its good..but we need to make navy more powerful.i think you all will agree guys…
