Morarji Desai - it comes first in the Mind regarding the incident in 1978 and the telephonic conversation.

paksitnais have intelligence in 1979 that india is planning to attack kahuta
AM shameem sai he informed gen zia that no one can defend kahuta its 3 minutes flight from border . once our air crafts reach kahuta inddians will already bomb and left . we need aircraft which deter india . and they selected f-16 for counter attack . usa refused first to supply but letter agreed . once f-16 arrived pakistanis have planned a counter attack and informed indians in three layers that if india attacked kahuta paksitan will attack bhabha and other indian facilites .

he asked secretory of science and technology to meet indian deligation at international atomic conference and inform them that india attack kahuta pakistan will attack bhabbha

when munir talked to his indian counterpart indian secretory replied BHAI WE KNOW YOUR CAPABILITIES AND INDIA WILL NOT HAVE MISSION ATTACK KAHUTA.

So it was not stupid to make a sensitive nuclear facility so near to the border?

Timing of the report, what purpose does it serve ? when what's in the report is well known from previous releases since late 70s & onward. Distract from what ? that should be the question we be asking.

When selected, the site was well protected from low level strikes as approach required attacker to gain height as facility is surrounded by hills thus exposing themselves to AA and SAM. Mind you, this was all before CM and other type of SoWs.

Part of unable to defend is akin to asking for Gov't backing for procurement of F-16s, worked well didn't it ?

ATLIS pod becomes relevant ?

Maybe bomb tossing
toss bombing, op orchard style!

op orchard was israeli raid on iraqi nuke reactor in 82.
Here f16s training for toss bombing, the same technique IAF used to bomb it.

Bhabha center is nearby mumbai Island.... Pakistan F16 are the most capable fighters in South Asia but that time Pakistan didn't have air refuellers...... that time F16s were capable to reach over Bhabha but after mission were not capable to return to Pakistan due to short range...... there was huge risk in shaping this mission as target was not on the border it was deep inside and India had spanking new Fulcrums to defend in own backyard.....

Do you have a better location in mind?
yeah its not a good location. Better location would be in KPK or Balochistan. Away from indian reach.

fulcrums arnt really on f16 level.

But u need to search abt f16's range......it is capable of reaching there bomb and return.
