    Not necessarily, Canisters are used to increase life and reduce maintenance of an Missiles other than that its not good for anything else, Regarding road mobile ( tractor-launcher ) issue India is not only one but majority of other countries do the same such as China, France, US, And there is no issue with the Rail its design on IR regular car,

    Listen genius, the pictures I have posted came straight from TEL Manufacturer's website.

    Prithvi and Agni are both road mobile. The fact that Army fires Prithvi on a TEL in Pokhran Test range and SFC fires Agni off a TEL on Wheeler Island does not make Agni any less road mobile. If our missiles were not road mobile, we would be launching them off fixed platforms and silos instead of TELs. Canisterising missiles requires a certain level of maturity and reliability in sub-systems because once a missile is sealed in the canister, it would be years before the individual components can be serviced again. Other countries achieved that level of maturity in sub systems even before we operationalised our first missile.

    Some examples of non canisterised road transportable missiles:-

    Ah, the jerky cellphone VGA camera quality videos of Indian missile launches. Seriously, we can confuse the world into thinking that these videos are at least a decade and half old if we don't publish the dates of the test.
