Why India's top-5 "Patna" missiles are special

After the Second World War, all countries have made great progress in the matter of scienc and technology. When it comes to looking at the strength of a country, then in addition to the strong economy of that country, they look at its military force and defense equipment.


Defense equipment has an important place in all these, because they make the military force more powerful. All countries provide a wide range of missiles and other defense equipment to strengthen their military force. Organizations like DRDO( defense reasarch and development organization) and BDL( Bharat dynamic limited) are making significant contribution to strengthen the military force in India.


The development of Patna missiles started in India in 1983 under the IGMDP(integrated guided missile development program) program, which includes

P- Prithvi

A- Akash,

T- Trishul,

N- Naag

A- Agni

they play an important role in India's security.                



These 5 missiles have been called "Patna missiles".


In the matter of defense, India has now made a different identity in the world, in which organizations like DRDO and BDL have played an important role.
