India said the Agni-5 missile can hit a range of 5 one thousand kilometers in Harbin, China

LONDON Oct. 13: India’s “Business Standard” on the 12th carried an article saying, responsible for developing strategic long-range nuclear missiles in India India’s advanced systems laboratory plans to give the “Agni -5 “missile high road mobility, which will greatly expand the range of the missile hit.
article said, “Agni -5″ range of 5,000 km, but higher mobility allows it to quickly close to the road outside the target range. Suppose a war between India and Sweden, if the “Agni -5″ transmitter is located in Bangalore in southern India, the missile’s range can not be 7000 km outside Stockholm, Sweden, who covered the first account, but if the transport to the north of Amritsar City, you can blow into the scope of Stockholm.
Similarly, the “Agni -5″ moved to northern India and even the city of Harbin in northern China into combat range. In parts of India, “Agni -5″ to crack down on North and South America in addition to any other continent.
reported that “Agni -5″ India’s arsenal will be the first by a tube-launched missile launcher road mobile missile, with the show during the Beijing 11 DF-31A missile is quite similar to the outside. India’s active long-range missile “Agni” non-tube firing, difficulty in moving.
reported that “Agni -5″ missiles “Agni” missile R & D base, expected in early 2010 for the first test. Missile which uses composite materials, greatly reducing their weight, and added a third level (“Agni” missile for the two). “Agni,” the range of 3,500 kilometers, “Agni -5″ the former is beyond the range of 1,500 kilometers.
fire report quoted project leader 阿维纳什詹 Germany (Avinash Chander) as saying, “‘fire-5′road highly mobile missile, the cylindrical launcher has also been successfully developed and India, all future land-based strategic missiles are cylindrical launcher will be used. ”
reported that the maraging steel of the drum must have a launcher missiles stored for many years to ensure the sealing layer. In the ignition, the cylindrical launcher must absorb a lot of pressure to produce 300-400 tons of thrust to launch the missile, weighing about 50 tons.
reported that the cylindrical launcher was originally designed to launch the “Brahmos” cruise missile. However, until the success of India’s first nuclear-powered submarines for its “body count” was developed into a K-15 submarine-launched missiles, was completely overcome the technical problems cylindrical ballistic missile launches.
reported that India has successfully developed advanced systems laboratory and tested sub-guided multiple warhead (MIRV), made to strengthen the “Agni -5″ missile is another breakthrough. Sub-guided warheads placed in the “Agni -5″ missile at the top, containing 3-10 nuclear warheads. The warhead can be aimed at the hundreds of kilometers distance between the different goals, but also make them more than two warheads at the same time locking the same goal.
Although Zander said in reference to this point, “Over the past two years, we in the sub-guided multiple-warhead has made significant progress”, but the article is that the next sub-guided warhead of this extremely complex multi- The technology still needs a lot of testing, another four to five years, the warhead will be installed to “Agni -5″ missiles.
article said that despite the sub-guided multiple warhead technology and the use of space rocket launch satellites similar in principle, but the warheads for higher accuracy requirements. For example, for the satellite, the location of the original track below or above 1 km are also considered to enter the right track. The sub-guided warheads built-in circular error probability of the warhead must be within 40 meters. If it reaches this accuracy, even small nuclear warheads will also be able to complete their combat missions.
article points out, taking into account India declared its adherence to “no first use of nuclear weapons” policy, strategic planners in New Delhi that India must have a sub-guided multiple warhead (MIRV). Thus, even if India’s strategic nuclear arsenal after the destruction of saturation attacks or paralysis, is enough to launch a missile as part of the surviving hair severely damaged the enemy scale counterattack. Just “Agni -5″ multiple warhead missiles will be able to achieve this goal.
Finally, the article said, sub-guided multiple-warhead missiles alone can break the enemy’s missile defense system. For the enemy, the track and shoot down multiple warheads than the single-warhead to intercept more difficult. Moreover, India also gives the interceptor missile for each warhead mobility to avoid the enemy, so that sub-guided multi-warhead survival greatly improved. Finally, the sub-guided warheads will be equipped with electronic systems interfere with enemy radar. (Compiled: Spring)
