    You forgot its ALCM while our LACM can go beyond 700km so don't worry we can reach all your key locations which need to be taken out in a war.

    To hit beyond that with precision Pakistan can use Shaheen-1 BM with 900km range.

    Pakistan may soon declare that it can hit ships too. :D

    Please increase your knowledge about war, all strategic location are not hit until they pose serious threat and beyond 1200 km all your location are not strike worthy until MAD is in place.

    Pakistan don't need to, although it can hit those, because those are hit in longer conflicts not in short wars of 2 weeks or may be a month.

    550 KM is what cruise missile can fly on its own - but it is carried by an aircraft which can take it as far as needed. But once RAAD-II is launched, because if its very low flight, there is good chance that it stays hidden from your radars and defensive systems.

    You miss the point mate. BrahMos is not invisible to radars as it flies fairly high from the ground. It is fast but visible. RAAD-I and RAAD-II as well as Babur-I, Babur-II and Babur-III on the other hand are terrain hugging missiles and stays invisible to radars.

    They have to get low or they might miss the target because of their speed. Its not a stealth quality but a requirement to reduce the angle of attack and increase chance of hitting. During standard flight, it will be tracked by the radars.

    Now there is a reason why all of American air-launched cruise missile are sub-sonic. Examples AGM-129, AGM-86 and AGM-158 JASSM. Americans know value of terrain hugging missiles and despite having ability to build super sonic missles, they made them sub-sonic low flying missiles, and so are Babur-I, Babur-II, Babur-III and RAAD-I and RAAD-II.

    Pakistan also has super sonic anti-ship missiles namely CM-400 and C-802. India is only trying to build its first sub-sonic, terrain hugging missile called Nirbhay which India is failing to make over and over again, while Pakistan has 5 variations of this cruise missile and is now producing version-IIs. This shows you how advanced Pakistani missile technology is as compared to India. The only missile India operates (BrahMos) is also co-produced by Russia and India. India on its own is yet to build any cruise missile.

    Just made a comparison image RAAD 1 VS RAAD 2 ..cant figure out much @Bilal Khan (Quwa) ....

    RAAD 2 seems a bit lenghtier however the warhead size looks similar indicating not much of an increment in payload
