    So this test is significant because it launched 4 missiles?

    No, its just that the system has now been tested to its full extent, and might enter production now.

    Since the launch vehicle is quite small as compared to other BM TELs, it is easier to sneak one in in the heat of battle...launch the salvo and get out of there, before the enemy hits the vehicle. The canesterized missiles reduce time for launch preparations by a great amount.

    Shoot and scoot
    is an artillery tactic of firing at a target and then immediately moving away from the location from where the shots were fired to avoid counter-battery fire

    I have a feeling that this is to show forces on the Western border rather than Eastern side. KPK government is going to squeeze someone's windpipe soon and this may not just mean blockade of supplies into Afghanistan but out of Afghanistan as well.
    Wao this 60KM proved too good for you guys as it has neutralized your military doctrine. And to pinch you a little, it is nuclear capable and more than enough to neutralize entire armada single handedly. Hope India never gets to see that day.

    Official Indian Nuclear Doctrine - That regardless of the size of a nuclear attack against India, be it a miniaturised version or a "big" missile, India will retaliate massively to inflict unacceptable damage.

    First deal with this : Higher Range ,Better accuracy and 6X to deal with:coffee:[​IMG]

    And you think Pakistan will sit idle and not make mushroom clouds over India ?? We have more aggressive nuclear policy then what you guys have come up.

    So don't worry, it will be a MAD scenario.
    hahahahahahahaha, i love how Indian reply us in their usual threatening tone.

    The so called classified and non classified cruise missiles :bounce: :lol:

    Yup, Mushrooms will be blooming in entire region and Nasr would be one of the service providers. International think-tank says Pakistan keeps more mushroom-producing devices than India does and they are small enough to be carried by 0.2m diameter Nasr. Amazing isn't it?
