MASSIVE: India issues NOTAM for possible test of K5 SLBM for the first time

India has issued a NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) warning for the launch of a missile in the Bay of Bengal period between 13th to 14th September and the designated area is 1,990 kilometers which suggests that it could be the first test of the 6,000 kilometers range K5 Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile (SLBM).

Using a K5 SLBM, an Indian SSBN (Nuclear Ballistic Missile Submarine) can hit targets of strategic values deep inside Mainland China from the secured depths of the Indian Ocean Region.


The missile will be able to carry a payload weighing two tones. It is being developed to match the range of the Agni-V ICBM. It will be equipped on the Arihant class  submarines code named S4.

The K-5 will be equipped with countermeasures to avoid radar detection and will be the fastest missile in its class.

India is also designing a larger 13,000 tonne S5 class SSBN which will be able to carry 12 K5 or K6 SLBMs in its missile hatches, which will be a massive deterrence for Indian in terms of sea based nuclear missile delivery is concerned.
