This video shows you that India’s Nuclear Triad.

India’s indigenously-constructed nuclear submarine INS Arihant, which was quietly commissioned into service in 2016, has reportedly suffered major damage and has not sailed for months, according to a news report. The submarine was launched in 2009 by then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and was formally commissioned by Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lamba.

With its commission, India had ‘quietly’ completed its nuclear triad. INS Arihant is a nuclear-powered ballistic m!ssile submarine armed with 12 K-15 m!ssiles with a range of 750 km, which will later be upgraded K-4 m!ssiles with an extended range of 3500 km. India became the sixth country to have a nuclear triad i.e. capable of delivering nuclear [email protected] by aircraft, ballistic m!ssiles and submarine launched m!ssiles. Other countries with nuclear triad are Russia, United States, United Kingdom, France and China.

In November 2017, India tested the BrahMos m!ssile from the Sukhoi-30 MKI platform. India maintains a no first use nuclear policy and has been developing a nuclear triad capability as a part of its credible minimum deterrence doctrine. India’s [email protected] programme possesses surface-to-surface mi$$iles such as the Agni III and Agni IV. In addition, the 5,000–8000 km range Agni-V ICBM was also successfully tested beginning 19 April 2012 and is expected to enter service by 2016.

India has nuclear-capable fighter aircraft such as the Dassault Mirage 2000H, Dassault Rafale, Sukhoi Su-30 MKI, MIG-29 and SEPECAT Jaguar. Land and air strike capabilities are under the control of Strategic Forces Command which is a part of Nuclear Command Authority. A nuclear triad refers to the nuclear [email protected] delivery of a strategic nuclear arsenal which consists of three components: land-based intercontinental ballistic mi$$iles (ICBMs), strategic bombers, and submarine-launched ballistic mi$$iles (SLBMs).

The purpose of having a three-branched nuclear capability is to significantly reduce the possibility that an enemy could destroy all of a nation’s nuclear forces in a first-strike attack; this, in turn, ensures a credible threat of a second strike, and thus increases a nation’s nuclear deterrence, according to Wikipedia.
