DRDO on Agni V

“Here’s the press release.”:http://drdo.gov.in/drdo/English/dpi/press_release/Agni_5.pdf

It contains some good detail. Perhaps interestingly, the DRDO didn’t call the missile an ICBM.

The real missile geeks (and I mean that respectfully) can sort this out, but I am curious as to what the below claim says about India’s missile skills:

bq. The redundant Navigation systems, very high accuracy Ring Laser Gyro based Inertial Navigation System (RINS) and the most modern and accurate Micro Navigation System (MINS) *ensured the Missile reach the target point within few meters of accuracy.*

One thought on “DRDO on Agni V

    “Few meters” seems quite unlikely without a MaRV. Inertial, even if helped out with GPS, might get them into the 50-100 meter range with a pure ballistic missile.

    Is there any indication the Agni V has a PBV? That could help with accuracy.
