Description: The Agni is a family of Intermediate Range Ballistic Missiles (IRBM) developed by India in connection with its nuclear weapons program. Basically, the nuclear capable Agni is a two-stage ballistic missile fitted with an accurate inertial navigation system. Their maximum ranges vary from 2,500 through 5,000 kilometers depending on the payload weight. The first stage is based on a solid propellant rocket motor booster and the second stage may be a shortened version of the Prithvi ballistic missile fueled by liquid propellant. So far, India has developed three versions of the Agni missile each one featuring increased range over their direct predecessor.

The first Agni ballistic missile was test fired in May 1989, the second test firing in 1992 and the third test firing in February 1994 achieving its intended performance. Following United States pressure the Indian government put the program on hold until the late 1990s when a new Indian government re-started the Agni program with the improved Agni-I2 and series production of Agni-1 ballistic missiles to equip India's Strategic Forces. The Agni-1 has been test fired several times in the 2000s to demonstrate its ability to hit targets at ranges between 700 km to 2,500 km carrying a 1,000 kg payload. The last test firing was conduced by the Indian Strategic Forces Command October 5, 2007.
