    After Agni-V missile's strategic success, India is currently developing another long-range nuclear- capable Agni-VI ballistic missile capable of carrying multiple warheads, local media reported Saturday.

    "Agni-V is major strategic defense weapon. Now we want to make Agni-VI which would be a force multiplier," India's state-owned Defense Research and Development Organisation chief V.K. Saraswat was quoted by 'The Times of India' newspaper as saying in the southern city of Bangalore Friday.

    The missile will allow one weapon system to take out several targets at a time, the report said.

    "It will have force multiplier capability... which would enable us to deliver many payloads at the same time using only one missile. Work is on in this area and designs have been completed. We are now in the hardware realisation phase," the DRDO chief said.

    India had successfully testfired Agni-V ballistic missile, with a strike range of 5,500 kms, in April last year.
