i. India is finally close to operationalising its long-awaited nuclear weapons triad — the capability to launch nukes from land, air and sea.
ii. INS Arihant’s 750km and 3,500km missiles may be somewhat dwarfed by SLBMs with ranges of well over 5,000km with the US, Russia and China, but the completion of the nuclear-triad is critical for a country like India, which has a clearly declared policy of “no first-use” of nuclear weapons.
