a. The Prithvi-I will reportedly be withdrawn from service and upgraded.
b. This test was reportedly not successful.
c. Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missile.
d. India reportedly conducted two tests of the K-4 in January: one on January 19 and another on January 24.
e. The boost phase is solid-fueled while the cruise phase is powered by a liquid ramjet engine.
f. Two BrahMos variants were tested, one a land-based variant and the other an ALCM.
g. The BrahMos is deployed on multiple platforms. Each deployment has its own designation. N-I refers to deployments on surface naval vessels. Blocks (B) I-III refer to deployments with the Indian Army. ALCM refers to Air-Launched Cruise Missiles and SLCM refers to Submarine-Launched Cruise Missiles.
h. The boost phase is solid-fueled while the cruise phase is powered by a liquid turbofan engine.
i. The HSTDV is comprised of hypersonic cruise missile technologies.
j. In its first test, the HSTDV was reportedly launched on board an Agni-I, which was to bring it to testing altitude. The vehicle itself is powered by a supersonic combustion ramjet (scramjet) engine fueled by kerosene.
