India’s Strategic Forces Command on wednesday has conducted test of Agni-V Inter-Contiental Ballistic Missile. India claims that it can strike targeting upto 5,000 kilometres range.

The successful launch aligns with India’s policy to have a “credible minimum deterrence” that underpins the commitment to ‘No First Use’.

The successful test-firing of the missile, built by the Defence Research Development Organisation’s (DRDO), came in the midst of a lingering border standoff with China in eastern Ladakh.

The first test of the missile was carried out in April 2012 while the previous one was reportedly conducted around three years ago.
