    Agni - 6 is already Under Development .... He is talking About ICBM over 10000 km range India should develop.

    Instead of focusing on ICBMs, they should focus on SLBMs with a much greater range than 800km K-15 SLBM.

    We don't actually need any ICBM having range more than 6000km.

    Fully agree with the Air Chief. We must be ready for all kind of circumstances.

    using strategic missiles to counter china's overwhelming superirority in conventional forces has been acknowledged by people in MOD and armed forces quite some time back.

    pakistan did the same to erode our conventional superiority and we r doing the same to china. we need to develop ICBMs and SLBMs to deter china.

    I would slightly differ, Its better to develop (officially) a ICBM with 5000-6000 km with higher payload up to 3 tons so it would have higher range up to 8000 to 10,000 km with lesser payload (unofficially).

    Why should we need a 10000Km missile now better we must try and meet the current threat than possible threat. If you ask me i will say it will be better if we can develop a 1250KM cruse missile similar to Shaurya and SLBM is good being a " no-first use " policy holder.

    ^^^Because there are no permanent friends and enemies in the real world. We cannot wait for some country who is our friend to become an enemy and then start for this kind of missile.

    And Prominent scientist from DRDO Says they got what it needs to Build an ICBM over 10,000 km range , why Not Allocate funds for project and Give Them a go ahead.

    Then it completely defeats the purpose of deterrence. Remember, ICBMs are elephant's showoff teeth. They are not for use, they are just to show that we've got the capability, and we will strike hard if required. ICBM is very similar to nuclear weapons.

    Because DRDO scientists say 10x more, but deliver 10x less. They don't have the capability to develop a 10,000 km missile. In fact, the Agni V is stretching their intellectual envelope. They are using the brute force to develop missiles, The Agni I was the only original development, every missile after it is just "add more propellant" strategy.

    Now we have reached a limit where we can not add more propellant as the weight is going way overboard. We need a breakthrough, or buy technology from Russia(secretly of course).

    The SS-27 missile of Russia weighs less than Agni - III but still has a range of 11,000 km. If we would create an ICBM today, it would weigh close to 250 tons, thats 6 times more than SS-27. This is just not feasible.
