India Continues Work on Agni V
(Source: Forecast International; issued July 13, 2017)
NEW DELHI --- India is working on new versions of the Agni ballistic missile. These missiles, which will carry a nuclear payload, will be capable of reaching targets throughout China. Previously, India's missile development program focused on deterring Pakistan.

New Delhi's nuclear-capable systems include two aircraft, four land-based ballistic missiles and one sea-based ballistic missile. In addition, India is working on at least four new systems with long-range land- and sea-based missiles. These missiles could be deployed within the next decade.

India is believed to have enough weapons-grade plutonium to build 150-200 nuclear warheads.
