"I think that is guaranteed. Army should be fully confident. There is no doubt about the arsenal at their command," he told Karan Thapar on "Devil's Advocate" programme on CNN-IBN.

Kakodkar, who retired from service on November 30, was asked about former Army chief V P Malik's remarks that nuclear scientists should assure the armed forces about the efficacy of the thermonuclear device.

He ruled out the need for further thermonuclear tests and said the country has several hydrogen bombs with a yield "much more" than 45 kilo tons.
