It is an Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) with a range of over 5,000 km and can reach most parts of China. Officials have said the missile features and latest technologies for navigation and improved accuracy. Earlier variants of the Agni family of long-range missiles have already been deployed.

The Agni series of missiles constitute the backbone of India’s nuclear weapons delivery, which also included the Prithvi short-range ballistic missiles and fighter aircraft.
