    ISPR release of this test to Media, but no media invited on test site, @TsAr is right about it

    to give a message to india, they blabbering about to capturing Azad Kashmir and also blaming that Terrorist/SSG from Pakistan are trying to get into India from south @maverick1977

    I believe NOTAMs are secret specifically these days for general public ...

    I don't think there could be a technical issue when its night at the time of launch since all the sensors and navigations on board work despite of what ever light conditions or weather conditions are , the night test could be a message that we are ready all the time....

    Battlefield level nuclear missiles are the real headaches even for USA, since they are almost impossible to intercept and can bring disaster on the battlefields

    RANGE....!! It was what first THING came into my mind that why the range is too short...?
    But the reason HOPEFULLY is to counter the Missile defense system india is going to have(Prediction).
    AM I RIGHT?

    NASR is basically for wipe out entire columns of enemy, whereas Ghaznavi's Job is for destroying command &control centers bases, air force bases, storage depots etc etc, Ghaznavi has more impotent job then NASR has @Comrade

    I heard after M6, Imran Khan even cancelled the ML1?
    I wonder, what is he going to present to public in next elections?

    Total flight of this missile is over in 4 minutes 35 seconds to its maximum target 250km away.

    If someone system in the world can travel so fast to a designated location and then intercept this missile in just 4 minuted & 35 seconds i would be amazed!

    It wont be fired on cities its for armored thrust and infantry columns.


    Its a bit better than nasr i hear.

    I hope we never have to use it, but if there ever arrives a situation when we have no other choice, then I hope we do not hold back and fire our entire arsenal.

    Do you mean 'important' or 'impotent'? Rest, your explanation is more or less correct. Nasr is a tactical nuclear weapon (TNW) to be used against advancing forces. Ghaznavi is a switch-role BM that can serve both near-strategic goals (i.e. target nearby counter-value targets like cities and towns in Gujrat and Rajhastan, perhaps even Punjab) and operational goals (i.e. target counter-force targets like the ones you have mentioned above). But mostly it would be viable as operational system. Abdali has an operational role.

    Could work either way. TNWs have their own added dilemma of when to use?; i.e. 'react' when the enemy forces have advanced & crossed the lines or 'preempt' before they cross the line. It will all depend on the situation of warfare, effectiveness of C2 system and SOPs issued to the field commanders when TNWs are handed over to them (generally speaking).
