    How can SLCM Babur be launched From Agosta 90B?
    How can the dimensions(of tubes) be changed?
    Won’t it fit in the torpedo tubes?

    Bro when we can build missiles...don't you think we are able to change the dimension of the missiles instead of changing the tubes.

    There can be 2 way.

    A: the dimensions of Babur are different as the SLCM Variant has lesser range from Land version
    B: Pakistan has TOT for Agosta that means that subs have been modified.

    I dont think we have the capability to change Tube dimensions on the 90Bs. The missiles are made of a dimension soi they can be fired through the 533mm tube. My 2 \piasas worth.

    Yes because TOT was bought long time ago. But I don't think in today's age and time it is difficult to change the tubes as Pakistan has been making mini subs domestically at Karachi shipyard but nothing confirm can be said over here.

    Babur was 520mm from day one. No changes to any standard 533mm torpedo tube are needed to be able to launch Babur-III SLCM. However the length of the missile has most likely been shortened, to accommodate it (including a booster) inside the tube using a capsule.

    and tube internally could be modified to accommodate longer length due to booster or size.

    Easier said than done. Not feasible in the current situation.

    Babur 3 range is too low, it must have a range of 1200-1500 km to be a real deterrent.

    Give them an efficient turbofan, and I'm sure your dreams will come true.

    It is enough for the deterrence needs right now. Besides, the chances of Babur surviving 1000km+ in Indian mainland are quite bleak, considering the extensive SAM coverage.
