India Makes Strides in Missile Technology with Successful MIRV Test

Mar 11 India Standard


In a significant development, India successfully test-fired its first domestically developed missile equipped with MIRV (Multiple Independently Targetable Re-entry Vehicle) technology on Monday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself announced the achievement through a messaging platform.

This advancement signifies a major step forward for Indian missile capabilities. MIRV technology allows a single missile to carry multiple warheads that can be deployed to strike separate targets. The test involved integrating this technology onto the Agni-V platform, the latest addition to India's series of nuclear-capable Agni missiles.

With a range exceeding 5,000 kilometers, the Agni-V is India's only contender in the Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) category. This successful test places India among a select group of nations, including the US, Britain, France, China, and Russia, who already possess MIRV technology. Pakistan is also believed to have conducted a MIRV test in 2017, according to the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation.

The credit for this achievement goes to India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the country's premier military research agency.
