    True that, also true that India publishes the effective range at maximum payload(not even maximum range) so I guess the maximum range would be more..
    Off topic. What range does Pakistan publish?

    do u really believe that people trust wikipedia and will DRDO ever tell u how much is the range of the missile, look dude dont take my words on ur heart but all the information u have or the senior most MOD of this site has is totally different from that real truth that only scientists know and these people are kept under surveillance and wikipedia those dumb people think that information given in DEFXPO or any other exhibition is true!!!!!!,look man don't try to get into these things what u know and i know are just surface information no one knows whats the real range is???. so please don't argue with me even i don't know... :tsk:

    anti matter can not be yield in large quantities like more than 1 gm and that will be costing around 65.3 trillion dollars for one gram that means the whole world cannot buy on gram of anti matter and off course we will need very high magnetic field to control the unstable reaction almost 4.3x10 raise to 7 Tesla that's impossible to create now........so u can understand how difficult it is to use it as a weapon...:rolleyes:

    Army to Test Fire Agni-I Missile on Thursday
    By Hemant Kumar Rout | ENS

    BALASORE: The Strategic Forces Command (SFC) of Indian Army is all set to carry out a fresh user trial of 700-km range nuclear capable missile Agni-I from a defence base off the Odisha coast on Thursday.

    The missile was earlier planned to be tested on Wednesday.

    Defence sources said as the missile has already been inducted in the armed forces, this will be a limited stock production (LSP) test for which the missile has been randomly selected from a bunch of missiles. The test will be

    conducted from the Wheeler Island test facility of the Integrated Test Range (ITR).

    While preparation has been completed for the test, heavy security arrangements also have been made along the sea coast. This test will reconfirm the technical parameters set for the user (Army), said a defence scientist associated with the programme. There were considerable improvements in its re-entry technology and manoeuvrability since Agni's first trial.

    “The missile with full operational configuration and dummy warhead will be fired from the launching complex-IV of the ITR in between 9 am to 12 noon,” informed a source.

    Commander-in-Chief of SFC Lieutenant General Amit Sharma is expected to witness the launch from mission control room set up at the Island. After visiting Puri on Wednesday, he is slated to land at Dhamra at about 9 am on Thursday.

    Apart from him, Scientific Advisor to defence Minister and DRDO Chief Avinash Chander is also expected to witness the test firing.

    The Agni-I is an antiquated short-range and surface based ballistic missile in the Agni series. It has a strike range of 700-900 km. Compared it its longer-range cousins, its height is just 15 metres and it is powered by both solid and liquid propellants, which imparts it a speed of 2.5 km per second. This missile was first test-fired on January 25, 2002 and since then several trails have been conducted.

    It is designed to bridge the gap between indigenously built short-range Prithvi, already deployed in the army, and medium range Agni-II that has a range of more than 2,000 km. The DRDO had launched the Agni project in 1983 as part of the country's Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme (IGMDP).

    Agni-VI: India’s Next Missile all set to Surprise the World ?
    Published July 14, 2017 SOURCE: VISHAL KARPE / FOR MY TAKE / IDRW.ORG

    [​IMG]

    Agni-VI !!! What’s that? Never heard about it . were the actual words used by DRDO chief Dr S Christopher when asked by media about Agni-VI Program a few months back, while Government and DRDO continue to refuse to confirm or deny existence or development of successor of Agni-V, Chatter around seems to hint that India is just a few days or a few months away from surprising the world by testing China Centric Intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in coming days.

    Agni-5 India’s first China Centric ICBM recently turned 5 and also underwent its fourth and final test-firing last year and will now undergo at least two user-trials by the tri-service Strategic Forces Command (SFC) before it enters full-scale production and induction, which has lead to wide-scale speculation among Defence and Nuclear analysts worldwide on possible debut of Agni-VI pretty soon .

    Former DRDO chief Vijay Kumar Saraswat in his tenure had confirmed that India had all the building blocks to develop a longer range and more capable missile then Agni-V and talks about MIRVs (multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicles) capable Agni-VI being under development as been speculated by both Indian and International Defence and Nuclear analysts for a long time now.

    DRDO usually has development gap between each Agni-series of less than 4 years and Agni-V turning 5 without any successor in sight suggests that Successor at least is ready in semi-knocked down condition which can be assembled in few days for its first debut test flight if given clearance from the top but since DRDO has been so tight-lipped about Agni-VI, it suggests that the final decision will be a political one and reasons to keep Agni-VI under wrapped, might be a Strategic one .

    Agni-VI with 6,000-7,500 km range and ability to carry a larger multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicles (MIRVs) payload capability over Agni-V will send shockwaves not only in Bejing but also in all European countries which will be put them under Agni-VI range. Speculation is also there that Upgraded lighter Agni-V might be tested with MIRV Capability with under reported range to pass it off as just an improved Agni-V to keep nerves calm in many countries with whom India is working in trying to secure its entry in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).

    All-composite Agni-V with improved components will make it significantly lighter than its current avatar and with MIRV warheads, Agni-V will lead to range extension of 1500-2000 km with a 1.5-tonne warhead and Chinese officials have already debunked Indian claim of 5500 km slated range of Agni-V and have said that it is capable of striking targets 8,000 km away with a lighter payload which technically could mean that with a full payload a lighter Agni-V might be able to strike over 7000km range and with light payload over 9000km and Agni-VI could be 10000km capable ICBM with reported range of 6000km .

    While DRDO has not made any effort to clear confusion on who will be successor to the Agni-V, Two Successor theories floated around by Defence and Nuclear analysts worldwide and also in India is that to keep heat off its Nuclear Missile program, India might introduce upgraded Agni-V with the same name but with minor design change or with an extensions like Agni-V+ or Agni-VPrime to maintain a low profile of the new missile even if it comes with MIRV warheads and increased range or it might finally reveal Agni-VI but with understated range .

    The system is in existence for couple of years. The decision was always to be a political one, which the government of the day has to take.

    There was a video on Bharatrakshak forum now deleted on request from MOD Sayareakd which showed Indian Agni missile Train..............So China will be in for some real NASTY surprise if it does mischief with India.

    I doubt it has only 6000km range.
    Logically , it might be above 10000km.
    May be bcz India is not a member of NSG yet , so can't reveal actual range.
    Actually , militarily India is more powerful than we think.
    India is not revealing its some dangerous weapons to the world .
