    On the trains with Agni V thing ...
    We have in past , transportation of SSMs by special rakes of Railways.

    But I can say, that atleast as of today , we don't have anything in Indian Railways which can carry and then deploy a 50 ton missile , of around 18 meters in length...

    The news about 49 Road mobile TELs of Agni5 is true ..... It was from a program 'Make in India : New deal for defence' ..... It is a series about multiple Indian companies in defence sector ...... one of the episode was about a company which made the A5 trailer vehicles .... and this figure was said by the MD of the company itself .

    As for the rail TEL , we have dedicated A2 rail TELs in operation ..... A2 is lengthier than A5 .... So it wont be much of a problem developing a A5 rail TEL , just MHO .

    There was even a video of the same on YouTube which is now removed. It is disguised as a box wagon & only the higher number of axles reveal it's identity.
