Does not changes the fact that India has 200 km SAM while Pakistan has none


Just like all indians used to say that Pakistan would NEVER EVER become a nuclear weapons state with or without Chinese assistance. That it is impossible to do so............:lol:

So any air defence SAM or AESA radar by pakistan.......? I would very much like to know

DRDO Successfully Tests AAD Endoatmospheric Interceptor Against Multiple Incoming Simulated Ballistic Targets

August 2, 2018

India’s Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) successfully executed an intercept test mission earlier today at 1130 hrs from Abdul Kalam Island off the Odisha coast. This test involved the use of the DRDO developed AAD endo-atmospheric interceptor against multiple simulated incoming targets which mimicked the trajectory of a medium range ballistic missile (MRBM) launched from 1500 km away. The AAD configuration for this test was similar to what would be offered for production and deployment.

The Test

Today’s intercept mission involved the selection of one of the multiple incoming targets on a ‘real-time’ basis for interception by an AAD test-vehicle and this was executed successfully by the launched interceptor as confirmed by electro-optical tracking, radar and telemetry.

The AAD interceptor was initially guided by its on-board inertial navigation system (INS) which received continuous updates about the incoming target’s trajectory from ground-based radars through a secure data link. After that, a radio frequency (RF) seeker in AAD’s nose cone section tracked the target while an intercept course was plotted by its on-board computer (OBC)

India’s Defence Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman congratulated DRDO’s Scientist for this successful test-mission. Interestingly, Chief of Air Staff, Indian Air force, Air Marshal B.S Dhanoa witnessed this test, which might be indicative of the AAD system being near deployment.


About AAD

AAD is a single-stage missile powered by solid propellants delivering high specific impulse values. The missile has a length of 7.32 metres, diameter of 420 mm and a weight of 1275 kg. Its guidance package has a fibre optic gyroscope (FOG) at the heart of an INS which receives updates from ground based radars such as the Long Range Tracking Radar (LRTR) and the Multi-function Fire Control Radar (MFCR). Both of these radars were initially developed by DRDO’s Electronics and Radar Development Establishment (LRDE), Bengaluru with foreign collaboration. For the end-game, AAD uses a RF seeker with considerable tracking range. AAD can intercept targets at altitudes between 15 to 25 km. In the course of flight, AAD achieves high supersonic speeds and the efficacy of its thermal protection systems as well that of its actuation system has been demonstrated repeatedly.

The version of the LRTR used in today’s AAD mission is an L-band array that can track a ballistic target with a radar cross section (RCS) of 0.1 sqm from over 1500 km away. MFCR, which is a S-band array has a tracking range of over 370 km for a target with a RCS of 0.3 sqm. Both radars are capable of variable track rates.

The ground based launch control elements for AAD are the same as that for PDV.

The Mobile Launcher

Today’s test was conducted from a mobile launcher that can house a total of 6 AAD interceptors in canisterized configuration (see the video below). The launcher has been built by Tata Power SED and can also be used to launch the Prahar short range surface to surface missile which has air frame commonality with AAD. Overall, today’s AAD was tested in what is essentially going to be its deployed system configuration. (Although, only one canister was loaded onto the launcher frame for today’s test.)

Back before May 1998 indians like you were saying that it is IMPOSSIBLE for Pakistsn to ever become a nuclear weapons state or that there was NO evidence whatsoever to suggest that Pakistan had nukes. We all know what happened to that indianism. Just as then so us now.........:lol:

Nobody ever said that. It's well known that Pakistan possesed nuclear weapons way before '98 as well as the source of those weapons. Anyways building a nuke bomb isn't a very hard thing, even north Korea has those inspite being under severe sanctions for decades.

Not what the indians were saying back in the early part of May 1998. With regards to North Korea, you are talking as if indians invented nuclear technology and weapons.

I was asking what are Pakistani SAM and AESA radar that have you people have made ..instead of that he writes the same repetitive post in different sentences

What were the Indians saying? Just don't make up stories because it makes you feel good.


There was a channel 4 (uk) interview with an indian diplomat 2 days before Pakistan tested it's nuke claiming that it was impossible for Pakistan to EVER become a nuclear weapons state with or without Chinese assistance and that Pakistan would be destroyed by india if we didn't accept indian diktat. He was a sikh guy. Another indian politician claimed it was impossible for Pakistan to EVER become a nuclear weapons state with or without Chinese assistance because Pakistan could not manufacture matches so it was impossible to manufacture nukes. I am going to try to find those interviews and upload them here.
