    Correct.

    Even those opposed to Gen Zia in Kurram were pro-mujahideen for this very reason. The puppet government in Kabul regularly supported badmashi behaviour in Kurram.

    In our village we have a Chinese made belt fed anti aircraft gun which damaged an enemy aircraft which intruded. I will have to get more info on the encounter.

    Interesting thread.

    It was given just about enough coverage. I have found news reports on it while doing my thesis research, and continue to find them now and then. Pakistani military and academic scholars have also written about these attacks with just about as much importance as it deserved. Only about a dozen or slightly more were launched on Pakistani tribal area. The real damages and casualties took place on the Afghan side where Scud-B missiles were launched on Kabul, Jalalabad, etc.

    Aslam Beg's announcement of ballistic missile tests (Hatf-I and Hatf-II) in 1989 was largely a response to India's Prithvi test in 1988, not Afghan Scud-B. Pakistan did not buy missile technology from North Korea in response to Afghan missile attack either. The original Hatf-I and Hatf-II were highly rudimentary. In order to lay the foundations for a more advanced technical base for the indigenous missile programme, Pakistan acquired ballistic missile tech from both China and North Korea. By the time Pakistan reached out to China and North Korea, the Afghan War was winding down, and by the time Pakistan began developing advanced ballistic missiles the Soviets had withdrawn and no ballistic missile attacks from Afghanistan were taking place. The security rationale for Pakistan's missile programme is exclusively India.

    they are lucky we are not like them. They have used the deadliest weapons in their disposal at us and we never went beyond artillery...
