    India is capable of comfortably developing missiles that can hit targets located at more than 10,000 km away. The country's defence establishment is now gearing up to go for the maiden development trial of Agni-VI missile within next two years notwithstanding international reactions and pressures.

    The next generation of the Agni ICBM missiles will have a strike range of 8,000 km to 10,000 km. The drawing and designing work of the Agni-VI has already started.

    "It will be a three-stage missile and taller than the Agni-V. The design is just taking shape and other sub systems are under development. If everything goes as per the programme, the missile will be ready by mid 2014," said the source.

    The DRDO has already crossed the 'threshold' of making a system with longer capability and developing it's sub-systems, thus making a longer version of Agni-V would be easier.

    The Agni-V can also double up as a satellite launcher for hurling small-sized spacecraft into the space.

    The Agni-VI is said to be the latest and most advanced version among the Agni series of missiles. It will have the capability to be launched from submarine and from land-based launchers. The DRDO is also working on integrating Agni-V with submarine.

    Apart from the Agni-VI's ground version, the DRDO is also simultaneously working out for its underground variant. The submarine launched version of the missile will arm the Arihant class submarines of the Indian Navy. This missile with a strike range of 6,000 kilometers can carry a payload of one tonne.

    India is seriously contemplating to enhance the reach of it's strategic missiles.

    some how not comfortable with this idea of inducting missiles more than 8000 Km range.

    look at our internal security the maoists are ruling some districts in jharkhand and chhatisgarh. we have to equip our police in a better way.

    ever looked at a cop how shabbily dressed he is. he has no pride in uniform. does any one think this sort of guy is capable to tackle terrorists and naxals. he is poorly trained. he doesnt fire a weapon for months altogether there is always shortage of staff.

    look at the kind of security situation internally. our mothers and sisters are afraid to go out alone. rapes are increasing day by day and so are murders.

    we need a overhaul of our internal security and we require funds for training, better equipment and of course recruitment and salaries.

    There is lack of political will, they don't want to clear moaist from our country. We all knows from where they get there arms and findings. Stop there funding and arm supplies, cut there supplies then they will evacuate jungle and come in open. Then they have two option. First, to return to main stream or return to god.

    I am sorry to derail the thread topic. Excuse me please!!!

    Ok guys back to the Topic.

    What say,
    what do you think should be the Type of Fuel in the Agni-VI

    Solid or Liquid Fueled ??

    Both have their advantages.

    AFAIK, India already graved the liquid propellant along with Prithvi missile. DRDO is focus on solid propellant as fuel. Also, we are developing Agni VI on the same technology as on Agni V. So, We will see it in solid props.

    I cast my vote on solid fuel. LiquidF has some advantages but using
    solid fuel is the best option for a canister-mounted missile.

    Solid fuel :

    Quick Launch
    Cannister launch
    No time wasted on fueling the missile

    Liquid Fuel :

    Longer Range
    Lighter to transport
    Silo Based

    As Prithvi missiles has been extensively used as target practice for AAD and PAD BMD project. Didn't you seen the videos AAD & PAD use to intercept Prithvi missile. Also, sooner or later PAD BMD is also going to decomission. As, DRDO is heading toward more sophesticated BMD system.

    Has the dimensions of the missile size been confirmed? I just hope it doesn't turn out to be a 40 metre high missile.....We don't need Gargantua for now........
