The first Agni missiles achieved a maximum range of 1,500 kilometers, covering all of Pakistan and large areas of southwestern China, but the combination of first-stage solid fuel and second-stage liquid fuel propulsion systems made deployment and launch operations clumsy and immobile, requiring half a day of preparation.
A past RAND study argued that a missile with a range of 3,500 to 5,000 kilometers was necessary to put China’s most valued assets at risk.
Despite its pursuit of ballistic missiles, however, India’s most likely delivery platforms for the time being are its fighter-bomber aircraft, as a classified internal review conducted by the Indian air force in the summer of 2001 says.

NAG's successful test flight on June 10 makes it the only missile in the world today to have four distinctive capabilities rolled in one and thus is most advanced, Dr Prahlada told Business Line.
The capabilities include imaging infrared technology, which helps in distinguishing a tank from other vehicles accurately; ability to hit a reach of 4 km; fire and forget feature and finally an on-board missile guidance to ensure that the weapon hits the heavily armoured battle tank from top and inflict maximum damage, the DRDL Director explained.
The NAG missile has hit static targets with five times accuracy and some more tests will be done to exhibit its full reach and features, Mr Mishra said.

After missile enters atmosphere at 100Km altitude it generates blunt shock wave so hot (~4000 C) that plasma is produced and its signature is loud and clear to IR sensor, that too against cold space), further the decoys don't work as well to mask the RV.
The “defender” missile which was to be test fired from the Wheelers Island after five seconds of the test firing of the “attacker” missile from Chandipur was to hit the later and destroy it.
The fact that the Prithvi name is being used for the air-defence missile is interesting, given that the missile is a derivative of the Devil SSM project, whose engine in turn was based on a reverse-engineered air defence missile.
