India's Agni missiles increase military reach and political instability in the Region.
As India and Pakistan are always in trouble between each other India has lunched a missile capable to target some 2000 km ground to ground today.

India has test-fired its intermediate-range nuclear-capable ballistic missile, Agni-II.

The surface-to-surface missile was test-fired off an island in Orissa state in eastern India, officials say.

With a range of more than 2,000km (1,250 miles), the missile can carry a nuclear payload of 1,000kg.

The Agni series are among India’s most sophisticated missiles. A long range version was successfully test-fired last year.

The Agni-III missile, tested last year, has a range of more than 3,000km (1,865 miles) and could hit targets as far off as Beijing and Shanghai, analysts say.

The Agni-I has a range of 750km (470 miles).
The Agni (literally “fire” in Hindi and Sanskrit) missile family is believed to be the mainstay of the Indian missile-based strategic nuclear deterrence.
Based on some news sources Pakistan also planning to test a missile of same or higher capacity within a week or later. This regarded as compitition between two rival powers in South Asia.
