  4. 'Although the DRDO calls the Agni-5 an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), its range of 5000 kilometres puts it --- by most conventional measures --- in the class of intermediate range ballistic missiles (IRBMs), which have ranges of 3,000-5,500 kilometres. ' http://ajaishukla.blogspot.in/2012/04/perfect-launch-for-5000-km-range-agni-5.html This answers my query comment No.2

    Thanks :D

  5. I am no rocket scientist, but one question is bugging me since yesterday. If a ICBM travels outside of atmosphere to again reenter and strike its target, what is limiting the range of agni series. The question here is that, why is the range limited to 5500 when in space the missile can travel further without the need of much fuel. India has already been far ahead in space technology. Then what is the significance of this launch. I PERSONALLY THINK IT IS FAR TOO LESS FAR TOO LATE.

  6. Congratulations to the scientist and the support team. Money well spent by govt. on a worth cause. Please make sure you not only reward the top guns but also the supporting staff.
