On November 30, Indias strategic forces successfully launched a Agni - 3 medium range ballistic missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads. According to the Russian satellite news agency on December 1, the fire - 3 missile was launched at night for the first time. The missile was launched from a mobile device at a training ground on the Indian Island of Abdul Kalam in the bay of Bengal, with a range of 3000 km.

According to the report, agni-3 missile was installed in Indias strategic forces in June 2011. The missile has a diameter of 2 meters, a length of 17 meters, a range of 3000-5000 kilometers, and can carry a nuclear warhead or conventional warhead weighing up to 1.5 tons.

This follows Indias first night launch of the agni-2 missile on November 16.

According to a report on the website of new India Express on November 4, India has planned to test four kinds of independently developed missiles that can carry nuclear warheads this month, including Brahmos supersonic cruise missile, fire - 2 medium range ballistic missile, fire - 3 medium range ballistic missile and Earth short range ballistic missile.

Analysts believe that Indias intensive test of Indias main nuclear missiles in a month is not only to test the operational readiness of these missiles, but also to show the outside world its nuclear capabilities.
