    Good news on Dhan Teras: India acquires nuclear triad capability

    On the auspicious day of Dhan Teras, India's nuclear submarine INS Arihant returned after successfully completing its first deterrence patrol. INS Arihant carries missiles of ranged of 3500 km. and 750 km. Entire Pakistan, Bangladesh, other neighbouring countries and some parts of China come within the range of Arihant's long range and medium range nuclear-capable K-class missiles.

    Agni ballistic missiles and Fighter bombers being the first two legs of the triad, K-class missiles of Arihant is the third leg of the triad. Many experts feel that this leg is most crucial because it is most difficult to detect. This triad is extremely important for India because India follows 'No-first-use'nuclear policy.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated the Navy and its personnel, the scientists and the people of the country on this occasion.

    Thanks to Dr. Rao for providing detailed technical details. The K-class medium range and longer ranger missiles will make the Indian Navy more powerful, give India a clear edge over Pakistani Navy and bring some sort of equilibrium vis-a-vis Chinese Navy which is increasing its presence in the Indian Ocean.
    Beware! I question everything and everybody.
