Why should missile defence trigger a nuclear war ?
Beyond me. Contrary to the fanboyish bhaktards from your side and their mental equivalents from here; there is a LOT of communication between the key players of both countries regarding tests and launches to ensure that mistakes do not occur. Moreover the amount of intelligence both sides have on either means that leaving aside the darkest of projects, both sides are aware when the head of a major organization has an upset stomach.
The tit for tat on awareness of capabilities is completely different to the cold war and Iron curtain and is also what prevents war in the first place.

What ever made by india has no chance but if us israel bmd still have very slim chances because pak has mirv technology as well to out do a bmd


And dont forget bmd useless against cruise missiles nuke armes cruise missiles

India also said they are making 6th generation Tejas:partay::rofl:
Indians can just fool :sick:
they took dozen of year to fix their cruise missile and they claim to have tested anti ballistic missile :chilli:

fix your rifles on border first:undecided:

India says it has successfully tested an interceptor capable of shooting down ballistic missiles.(Pralay is based on Prithvi Defence Vehicle (PDV) the Exo-Atmospheric kill vehicle of AAD project)

But could this trigger a nuclear war with Pakistan?

On August 2, the Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) -- India's equivalent of the Pentagon's DARPA research agency -- launched an Advanced Area Defence (AAD) missile from Abdul Kalam island off India's eastern coast.

"The endo-atmospheric missile, capable of intercepting incoming targets at an altitude of 15 to 25 kilometers [9 to 16 miles] was launched against multiple simulated targets of 1,500 kilometer [932 mile]-class ballistic missiles," according to the DRDO announcement.

"One target among simultaneously incoming multiple targets was selected on real time, the weapon system radars tracked the target and the missile locked on to it and intercepted the target with a high degree of accuracy. The complete event including the engagement and interception was tracked by a number of electro-optical tracking systems, radars and telemetry stations. All the mission objectives were successfully met."

India's missile defence program is a two-tiered system: the Prithvi missile (derived from the Prithvi tactical ballistic missile) for exo-atmospheric intercepts in outer space, before they near the target, and the Advanced Area Defence missile for endo-atmospheric intercepts within the Earth's atmosphere, in the terminal phase when the target warhead is making its final descent.

In that sense, it is similar to the 1960s U.S. Anti-Ballistic Missile System, which used Safeguard and Sprint missiles, or any integrated air defence system. A long-range interceptor to take out the incoming missile far from the target, and a short-range point defence weapon to destroy any missile that penetrates the long-range screen.

Previous tests of Indian interceptors targeted short-range Prithvi ballistic missiles on a trajectory that mimicked medium-range missiles. The Diplomat magazine suggests that the dummy target this time could have been an Agni, an intermediate-range missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

Indian press trumpeted that India's missile defence is a homegrown program developed by India, rather than imported from Russia and America as are so many Indian weapons such as jet fighters and tanks. That's no small point of pride for the world's second most-populous nation, once the poster child for poverty, and now the world's sixth-largest economy.

Interestingly, while India boasts of developing its own missile defence system, it is also buying Russian S-400 air defence missiles capable of intercepting missiles as well as aircraft.

"The S-400 acquisition, which has some utility for missile defence, suggests that India is interested in the capability and not merely letting DRDO have a science project," Christopher Clary, a professor of international relations at State University of New York Albany, told The National Interest .

But there is another danger with Indian missile defence, as history shows. When America and the Soviet Union developed anti-missile systems in the 1960s, the opposing superpower either built more missiles, or increased the number of warheads on existing missiles, to saturate enemy defences.

So What Will Pakistan Do?

India and Pakistan "are already in an arms race for all intents and purposes and have been so for some time," Georgetown University professor C. Christine Fair, who has written on the Pakistani military, told The National Interest.

"There is, of course more nuance: Pakistan has the world's fast growing nuclear weapons program. India has chosen not to reciprocate in growing its stockpiles. Pakistan has and is trying to acquire tactical nuclear weapons while India has demurred."

"Pakistan will field more warheads on more delivery vehicles than it would in the absence of BMD [ballistic missile defence], Clary says.

"Pakistan could develop multiple warheads for its current ballistic missiles, or develop short-range tactical nuclear weapons and cruise missiles that are harder to intercept."

In turn, a Pakistani buildup might prompt an India buildup, sparking a vicious cycle reminiscent of the Cold War.

Ironically, India is notorious for developing home-grown weapons, such as aircraft and tanks, that take much longer to develop than expected, and are plagued with problems when they are fielded. But as always with nuclear weapons and missile defence, perception is everything.

"The biggest problem from India's side is that it all too frequently announced that it has a capability which mobilizes Pakistan to innovate when in fact India is a long way from achieving the stated capability but Pakistan has already developed a counter measure," Fair warns.




NOTHING is going to happen. THE ONLY thing that is going to happen is that indians on the internet are going to make some severely outlandish and retarded claims about being a "superpower" who can destroy any nation.... :lol: NOTHING more. Back in the REAL world, india will not DARE attack Pakistan. indians are all hot air and talk. Nothing else.

there are no winner in a nuclear war can you live with more than a dozen of your cities destroyed after intercepting 150 warheads
Pakistan has been using MAD as the only cover for its inability to acquire modern war machines. Only time will tell if Pak will start the end of the pure.

They believe in conjectures!!! As long as Pak has them (MIRV, W-2 like warheads etc.), and they're directly targeting to the 70% of India's wealth belonging to the "chosen" 50 folks (mostly Gujratris, Parsis etc.) it's OK....
Once Indian Minister told US , strategic donation of Nuke bomb over entire PAK, it will make entire PAK a waste land in 5 mins ,

In short 100 Nuke bombs dropped at same time all over PAK at a distance of 200 KM apart of each other , how much PAK left ... , do your calculation.

This is what US been told during kargil.

Well NE and south India survive. but question is which area PAK of left to live?

These last two para says it all ;)

Fyi our missiles can hit your andeman islands

And yes 100 nukes would be total destructive so would 150 we drop on india


Another point Pak is 1/3 Rd size of India not 1/10 th and our population density is much less per km so using same level of nukes losses in Pak would be lower owing to lower population density

Actually detonation of 100 nukes would cause global level nuclear Winter and famine and total destruction of subcontinent

Only firing a Nuke at India can start a nuclear war. No matter if it's a low yield TNW or the mass killer one.
It won't be one my friend. Sad as it is , it will be for total destruction , you will get most of what we have, the rest will go in other directions. This is what happens when fear rules. No need for this, we should aim for peace and weed out the evil ones from our societies. Instead of the great mad tirade let's go for the great trade where our victories are counted by the standard of living of our people and the surplus in our banks.

you can only able to launch missile when u can stay alive,

Moreover ABM system can enough to stop ur missiles and NE and South India can survive....

dropping bomb means to make waste land ...
