    Soon after the second successful test of Agni-V, DRDO Chief Avinash Chander declared that the missile would be test fired from a canister-based launcher next year.

    In its operational form, the missile is designed to be stored and launched from the canister, enhancing its storage, operational readiness, transportability, response time and shelf life. The system mounted on a truck will add operational flexibility.
