India — Plan To Equip Agni‑V With Multiple Warheads

India’s most pow­er­ful mis­sile which has a strike range of over 5,000 kms, is all set to get dead­lier with plans from the DRDO to equip it with mul­ti­ple war­heads.

The organ­i­sa­tion said that it will take time for them to devel­op mul­ti­ple war­heads for the mis­sile but it will sure­ly be done.

The tech­nol­o­gy is called ‘Mul­ti­ple Inde­pen­dent­ly Tar­get­ed Re-entry Vehi­cle’ (MIRV) which means the mis­sile would be capa­ble of car­ry­ing mul­ti­ple war­heads to destroy sev­er­al tar­gets.

The MIVR will act as a ‘force mul­ti­pli­er’ on the Agni‑V giv­en the dam­age poten­tial of such tech­nol­o­gy.

Such a capa­bil­i­ty exists only with a select few coun­tries such as the US, Rus­sia and Chi­na.

The Agni‑V is def­i­nite­ly a game chang­er mis­sile. It has tak­en India’s mis­sile tech­nol­o­gy to the high­est lev­el and match­es with the best mis­sile in the world.

MIRV mis­siles are equipped with small on-board rock­et motors and com­put­erised iner­tial guid­ance sys­tem which manoeu­vres war­heads to sev­er­al dif­fer­ent tra­jec­to­ries.

The gov­ern­ment of India has not giv­en the go ahead to devel­op mis­siles with 8000 km or even longer range, but if ordered to do so, the DRDO chief said that it can be done.

The suc­cess­ful test flight of Agni‑V mis­sile has giv­en India all the nec­es­sary capa­bil­i­ty to design and devel­op mis­siles of longer ranges as well.
