    Most BDM Systems can't intercept ICBM over mech 20.
    Agni 5 has speed of Mech 25... so his claim is true.
    BDM system India is developing will be able to intercept missiles at speed mech 15 only.

    I think it is a far fetched chest thumping that it cannot be intercepted. Hope first they perfect the missile and then induct it first in the strategic forces. It is when he can make all the claims.

    His statement is nothing but moral boost of Indian Citizens, PR campaign to loose the DRDO's looser image.

    That's a very bold statement.

    Nothing is 'uninterceptable'. I suspect in Asia, and the immediate region for the use of Agni-V, it will indeed be difficult to intercept, probability of interception is likely low.

    But that's not to go saying that it is 'uninterceptable'. An irresponsible statement IMO.

    Upon what information would you place that assumption?

    That's true for a lot of missiles not just Agni-V. If you are talking about IRBM the ones with higher range reach mach 24-25 as their terminal velocity, our Shaheen-III reaches a terminal velocity of mach 24. But for Agni in the ICBM category, mach 25 re-entry speeds are no too surprising and certainly don't make it any more uninterceptable than other missiles of the same category.

    Besides, like I said, it may make sense to say such a thing in this region for this time frame, but not the future outlook. The probability of interception will only increase from here on.

    Exactly, Agni -V should have more speed or further develop wid more speed to become uninterceptable

    no, I have not missed the train. I know wat u want to say.
    currently agni 5 can be uninterceptable but not in coming yrs.
    I have said that Agni 5 should gain more velocity through developments to defeat the ever increasing capabilities of patriot missile system
