“It is a strategic asset which will act as a deterrent,” an official involved in the Agni 5 program told NDTV, adding that “the strategic project” was nearing a conclusion.
The TV network’s sources said that the first batch of new ICBMs will arrive “soon” and be delivered to India’s Strategic Forces Command, though they declined to elaborate any further due to the sensitive nature of the project.

Earlier in June, India carried out a successful test of the Agni V missile at the Integrated Test Range on Abdul Kalam Island. – Sputnik News
