India All Set To Launch New Missiles! The Main Target Will Be China & Not Pakistan!

Enough of the foul play from neighbouring country China as India is now ready for any situation. Not just Pakistan, even China must fear from India now because it is all set to develop the missiles that have potential to target whole China from its bases in South India.

Two top American nuclear experts have said that India continues to better its atomic collection with an eye on China.

An article published in the July-August issue of the digital journal–After Midnight–has also claimed that India is now developing a missile which can target all of China from its bases in South India.

Hans M Kristensen and Robert S Norris wrote in the article, “Indian nuclear forces 2017”-

India is estimated to have produced enough plutonium for 150-200 nuclear warheads but has likely produced only 120-130.

Noting that India continues to modernise its nuclear arsenal with the development of several new nuclear weapon systems, the two experts estimate that New Delhi currently operates seven nuclear-capable systems: two aircraft, four land-based ballistic missiles, and one sea-based ballistic missile.

They said-

“At least four more systems are in development. The development program is in a dynamic phase, with long-range land- and sea-based missiles emerging for possible deployment within the next decade.”

Kristensen and Norris said that the two-stage, solid fuel, rail-mobile Agni-2, an improvement on the Agni-1, which can deliver a nuclear or conventional warhead more than 2,000 km is probably targeted on western, central, and southern China.

The research article said-

Although the Agni-4 will be capable of striking targets in nearly all of China from northeastern India (including Beijing and Shanghai), India is also developing the longer-range Agni-5, a three-stage, solid fuel, rail-mobile, near-intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of delivering a warhead more than 5,000 kilometres (3,100-plus miles).

It added-

“The extra range will allow the Indian military to establish Agni-5 bases in central and southern India, further away from China.”

Well, this goes to prove that it’s not that easy for China to challenge India as they are thinking. They must understand that it is not 1962 but 2017 and India has developed by leaps and bounds over these years. What do you think?
