  • India's longest-range strategic ICBM missile, the Agni-V, is scheduled for it's maiden test today. With all systems ready, sources reveal a test may take place at dusk today from Wheeler Island, off India's eastern peninsular seaboard.

    The missile, with a range in excess of 5,000-km, is the first Indian missile that has the capability to deliver a nuclear warhead out to any part of China. The Agni-V test comes shortly after the 3,500-km Agni-III was inducted into operational service with the country's Strategic Forces Command, and the testing of the Agni-IV.
