    Such a DELUSION had and have been costing you dearly.... Its better to open the eyes and see the reality... those Scud and M11 variants are just shooting practice of all the current ABM systems available.... Its such a pity that even SAM systems like S-300 have the capability to intercept them and bring them down easily...

    If ABM are just cash pit then Pakistan should ignore everything and wait and watch :). But Once Multiple layer of ABM and SAM will be in place, Pakistan corrupt people will start mass production or import of Missiles.

    Once Pakistan will have enough number of Missiles. We will increase the No. of ABM system many times more. So Corruption will continue forever. :)

    no need for Indians to get excited over the BMD...it is a far-fetched plan...

    By 2014,only Delhi will be protected by AAD/PAD...

    Why do Indians ignore that Pakistan will also develop its missile technology further?

    Its silly that you consider an unoperational Quasi-BM as an answer to the rapid thrust of 3 Mechanized Divisions well supported by AF and Navy......

    The current ABM is just a building block or 1st step towards a bigger threat.... i.e. China....

    These ABM systems are manual aswell as automatic... and functions spontaneously on the detection of any threat.... what you don't realize is the advantage the close distance offers.... making any launch detectable in boost phase only and intercepting it right there in the most vulnerable stage aswell... hence not allowing any such missile enter the space in 1st place.... Remember Swordfish latest variant can detect and track targets as small as a cricket ball at 1500km.... Not to mention a secret Radar project which would operate in X-band and have capability to detect a Football size target at 4000km aswell.... Besides satellite detection... Very less window remains there for any Pakistani BM to enter space.... hence BM is not the option after 2020.... Its =Fail in the scenario you have mentioned.

    US offered Patriot System, Russia Offered S-400/500 (we already have S-300). We can also buy Arrow-3 if needed. But I don't think, we will need. Our ABM 1,500-2,000 KM AAD & PDV and 5,000 KM AD-1,2 will be deployed in 2014 and 2016-17 respectively. If By chance, Our ABM fails (which is negligible as all are on schedule since 2004) still we can Buy Any of the best 3 ABM. So, Our ABM will be reality and we will be in Top 4 best by 2017. US will provide ABM for Europe. China ABM will come in 2020 as per news. China has to develop because they don't have 2nd Option.

    The Multiple-Kill Vehicle project has been dropped,owing to the high costs and impractical design...It was aimed at China and Russia.

    Since MKV will fail to protect US mainland from any Chinese/Russian attack,so it is useless to waste money on it,According to the latest report on BMD by US Department of Defence.

    Instead,US aims to co-operate with Russia and possibly China to share information and detection structure on Ballistic Missile Threat from states like Iran and North Korea.

    Practically,the BMD of USA is against Iran and North Korea only.Against Russia/China,MAD is the deterrent.

    ABM is not point missile but range. AAD/PDV will cover 1,500-2,000 KM 360 degree so 3,000-4,000KM. So, Kashmir to Mumbai if deployed at Delhi. (Delhi will be centre of 3,000-4,000 KM border of Pakistan)

    Also PDV will replace PAD in 2014.

    Yes but after the rapid thrust during 1998-2004 period we are yet to see any considerable development.... Nasr etc.... are just for public amusement and propaganda to give them assurance... they hold a little to no significance against the current Indian Missile programs.... which are being tested almost every month.

    Systems like Nasr,Babur are adding diversity to our Strategic program...the more diverse it is,the harder will be to stop all of it...

    BTW,which ABM system (in Indian possession) can intercept Nasr?

    Don't Include China here..... the BMD of US is capable enough to take care of a a couple of hundred of ICBMs which China would possibly launch against it.... Russia was and continues to be the main threat here since it has 1000s of BMs in ready to launch positions.

    Pakistan will go for MIRVs soon, probably a decade later or so , India will come up with a system close to being as capable as THAAD.

    New Delhi could have anti-missile shield by 2014

    I hope this helps...

    ASHWIN is the best candidate here.... as it is designed to intercept targets in terminal phase.... If it can intercept a ballistic missile in terminal phase as demonstrated it can surely intercept a quasi-Ballistic one.... and since Nasr would rise upto 50-60km in atmosphere.... it would allow a fair chance to get detected..... besides there are several point defense systems which would come in handy.
