NEW DELHI, June 3 (PTI): India will for the first time test fire its 5000-km range Agni-V ballistic missile by the end of this year in what is being seen as a major leap in the country's missile capability.

"Agni-V missile would be ready for test by the end of this year, probably in December," Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) chief V K Saraswat said here today on the sidelines of a function.

He said that the 3000-km range Agni-III missile has already been inducted into the armed forces. "Agni-III is already inducted. Its development has been completed and is under production," he said.

Saraswat was replying to the queries on development schedule of Agni-III and Agni-V series of missiles after Defence Minister A K Antony, who addressed the function, asked DRDO to prioritise development of the 5000-km range ballistic missile.
