Dude instead of being outright critical every time, you need to calm down a little.
There are sources claiming that it's a MIRV but however let's wait and see for official confirmation.
I will be more than happy if this is a mirv capable missile test but love to see those sources or I guess professionals/thinktanks can state better

Kanjoos hain sary....:undecided:
Ratings are not awarded for uncertain, doubtful, dubious or any content that lacks substance/details. Since, two random pictures are shared only and then even the title was wrong, therefore, sometimes title holder hold back. Furthermore, there are very less of occasions that a source based upon news is awarded with +tive rating. However, continue with your enthusiasm and polish your skills to break some positive news in better style/draft, I am sure you will be attracting them to award some. Don't feel disheartened. carry on.

Congrats to all.... Congrats to Pakistan... :pakistan:

May ALLAH bless us with strong faith and sharp weapons so we can cut through our enemies. Ameen.

I wonder if those are thrust vectors.

View attachment 708650

ISPR press release states that test was aimed at 'revalidating' design parameters which means that SOME changes have been made.

It's not MIRV obviously, but this is probably an upgrade similar to that from Shaheen-1 to Shaheen-1A.

The Shaheen-1A was a huge step up with improved terminal guidance, thrust vectoring and a new warhead fairing.

The blurry and poor quality pictures add another perspective and it won't be out of place to say that this design includes some major improvements in accuracy. The thrust vectoring would be a logical step in that direction

Not an imagery expert but seems like, 2 or 3 stage system with thrust vectoring to adjust?
This was noted earlier.



The publicized 2,750 km range of the Shaheen 3 suggests modest improvement over the Hatf 6 or Shaheen 2, which is reported to have a range between 2,000 and 2,500 km. The additional range allows the missile to target Andaman and Nicobar Islands in the Bay of Bengal, which is the sole reason for its development according to General Khalid Kidwai, the former head of the Strategic Plans Division.4

Some speculation suggests that Pakistan is also working to equip the Shaheen-3 with multiple independent re-entry vehicles (MIRV) as a response to Indian attempts to develop a missile defence capability.
The missile underwent at least two successful tests in 2015 in March and December. 6
