DRDO’s recent monthly bulletin publication has once again generated buzz with its prominent display of the Agni-5 MkII missile on a poster. This move is seen as a strategic tease, hinting at the significant advancements India has made in its missile technology.

The Agni-5 MkII is a highly anticipated upgrade to the existing Agni-5 missile. It represents a significant leap forward in India’s strategic capabilities, allowing the nation to expand its reach without attracting excessive international attention.

Significant Enhancements:

  • Weight Reduction: Thanks to extensive use of composite materials, the Agni-5 MkII boasts a 20% reduction in weight compared to its predecessor. This translates to a launch mass of 40,000 kg and a payload capacity of 1,100 kg for nuclear warheads.
  • Extended Range: The lighter weight allows the Agni-5 MkII to achieve a remarkable range of 7,000 km with a full payload. Recent media reports suggest it can even reach targets 8,000-9,000 km away with a lighter payload.
  • Strategic Implications: This extended range allows India to effectively target locations across Asia, Europe, and parts of Africa, significantly enhancing its strategic reach and deterrence capabilities.
