    UK aint in the elite 5!!
    UK’s long range balastic missile and bomber capabilities have been curbed by their own economic stench. Their last long range bombers were decommissioned in the year they fought the infamous falkland wars. Hence they’r nowhere near achieving nuclear triad.

    Now france is focused on air deployment and SLBMs but not surface to surface balastics. Hence france too has only a conventional fail-deadly or second strike.

    But Israel quiet possible. Their deterance from land and air world has acknowledged, no lets say wary off. now with the emmese german help over submarines they have the elite class of submarines for underwater cruise missile launches.
    they cant be far behind in nuclear capability either

    anyways hurray India, Zindabad……..
    way to go!!!

    See Wiki article on SLBM,there its mentioned that UK does have SLBM.Not authentic though, still.

    well done , it makes us proud ,but it would be better for india to incorporate naval version of angi iii in future atv projects (its range 5000km),still not tested

    Very informative article, I had no idea India was so up and coming in terms of SLBM worldwide. I agree with your comment above—we are brothers and want peace, not war. These warheads are for protection, but not for preemptive attack.

    If my company is a member of a Chamber of Commerce is there an extra fee for me to join The Network: Young Professionals of the Quad Cities? NO, recently The Network made changes to its membership structure to allow more members of the Illinois Quad City and Iowa Quad Cities Chambers of Commerce to get involved.
