The Agni missile is a family of medium to intercontinental range ballistic missiles developed by India. Agni missiles are long range, nuclear weapons capable, surface to surface ballistic missiles.
The Agni missiles are claimed to be a part of the "credible deterrence" against China and Pakistan. India stated that its nuclear and missile development programmes are not Pakistan-centric. The Pakistani threat is only a marginal factor in New Delhi's security calculus, and that Agni is at the heart of deterrence in the larger context of Sino-Indian equation.
