India getting ready to test nuclear-capable Agni-V

India is gearing up to test its Agni-V Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) in its final operational configuration. This will be the final test of the three-stage Agni-V, which will be tested for its full range, before the Strategic Forces Command (SFC) begins its user trials. The tri-service SFC was established in 2003 and it will conduct at least two tests before the missile is produced in adequate numbers for induction. Once the missile is successfully inducted, India will join the super exclusive club of countries with ICBMs with a range of over 5,000-5,500km alongside the US, Russia, China, France and the UK.
