Main article: Akash (missile)
Akash (Sanskrit: आकाश Ākāś “Sky”) is a medium-range mobile surface-to-air missile defence system developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Ordnance Factories Board and Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) in India. The missile system can target aircraft up to 30 km away, at altitudes up to 18,000 m.

Nag (Sanskrit: नाग, Nāg “Cobra”) is a third generation “Fire-and-forget” anti-tank missile developed in India. It is one of five missile systems developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) under the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program (IGMDP). Nag has been developed at a cost of ₹3 billion (US$41.7 million).

Main article: Prithvi (missile)
Prithvi Missiles are tactical surface-to-surface short-range ballistic missiles (SRBM)
Name Type Stage(s) Range Payload User
Prithvi-I (SS-150) SRBM One 150 km 1000 kg Army
Prithvi-II (SS-250) SRBM Two 250 km – 350 km 500 kg – 1000 kg Air Force, Army
Prithvi-III (SS-350) SRBM Two 350 km – 600 km 250 kg – 500 kg Army, Air Force, Navy
Dhanush is a system consisting of a stabilisation platform (Bow) and the Missile (Arrow). It is intended for the Indian Navy, to be fired from ships against other ships or land targets. Dhanush can fire modified versions of Prithvi-II or Prithvi-III.
Agni missile series
Main article: Agni (missile)
The Agni missile series started as a “Re-Entry Vehicle” project (later rechristened as Agni Technology Demonstrator) in the IGMDP. The missiles in this series include:
Name Type Stage(s) Range
Agni-I MRBM One 700 km – 1,200 km
Agni-II IRBM Two 2,000 km – 2,500 km
Agni-III IRBM Two 3,000 km – 5,000 km
Agni-IV IRBM Two 2,500 km – 3,700 km
Agni-V ICBM Three 5,000 km – 8,000 km
Agni-VI ICBM Three 10,000 km – 12,000 km
The Agni-I, Agni-II and Agni-III missiles were developed under the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program. (The Defence Research and Development Organisation formally announced the successful completion of the IGMDP after the third test of Agni-III on 7 May 2008.)
Agni-IV was tested on 15 November 2011 and has a range of 3,000 km (1,900 mi), and can carry a warhead of 1 tonnes. It is a two-stage missile powered by solid propellant. It is 20 metres (66 feet) tall and has a launch weight of 17 tonnes. A new missile Agni-V with 5,000 km (3,100 mi) range and MIRV is being developed and was tested on 26 December 2016. Agni-V shares the similar design as Agni-III with an extra stage added to further increase the range by 1,500 km (930 mi).Agni-V will be road mobile and it has been stated that all Indian missiles developed after this will be road mobile as well.
Agni-VI is an Intercontinental ballistic missile reported to be in rudimentary stages of development by India, and until May 2012 was not officially confirmed by either the Government of India or the DRDO. Reportedly, it will be capable of being launched from submarines or from land and to strike a target of over 10,000 km (6,200 mi) with MIRV-ed warheads. Top DRDO scientists have previously asserted that India has almost all the equipment and technology needed to develop ICBMs, “but where the warhead should go or what the range should be will have to be a political call”.
