    Another press conference for Dr. Saraswat (close on heels of jet lag from overseas trips)!

    Just do it, then, may be, just may be, talk. The whole country is with you.

    Sad that India does not have more of Bhabha, Sethna, Ramanna or A.P.J.

    The whole establishment of DRDO (applies to MoD also) is crying for a leadership change.

    Mr. Ra

    It can be expected that all the new and lightweight technologies of Agni-III may be resized and incorporated in to improved Agni-II. This is pertinent as this missile ensures for 100% of pak and 90% of sino.

    Shiv, can you please point out what are the reasons for delay in Agni-II+ testing. It was earlier scheduled to be tested by September end. There must be some major technical issues involved at last minutes to postpone the test after announcement of the dates.

    Agni II (AT) or Agni II ++ is a hypersonic boost glide missile like Shourya.

    Both Shourya and Agni II ++ cannot be intercepted.

    Agni II ++ range will be more than 6000 km @ 600 kg payload.

    We can call it Hypersonic ICBM
