    Having Ballistic missles and using them in warlike situations are a different ballgame. There are many logistical nightmares to consider apart from range or accuracy. It means how effectively your ASFC can use these missles.

    It's never too late, and some times it pays to start late (but one has to start)

    More than the launch, which TEL is that? Doesn't seem like the usual integrated one we see.

    Topol is taller, wider, and much much heavier (almost double the mass of S-2).

    And that's when I haven't even mentioned the day and night difference in Russian expertise in rocketry compared to ours.

    C'mon now

    OpSec.

    Haha no, thats not oil.

    Pakistan didn't stop over-land tests, in fact Ghauri was tested twice more over land after that incident. And the TCS is supposed to always separate post-boost, there was just an operational (non-) 'issue' in that instance.

    Good catch, looks like one of the new Chinese ones.

    Actually that particular test range (not Sonmiani) has been operational since the late 1990s, with the beginning of Shaheen-I test flights. Shaheen-II and onwards have ALWAYS been launched into the Arabian Sea/Indian Ocean (since 2004). Today's test was only about training under operational conditions, and has nothing to with any speculated anti-ship capability. Considering the navigational warning & NOTAMs, the launch point was probably somewhere deep inland, perhaps somewhere in northern Punjab.

    We need to complete the testing phase of ababeel missile and operationalize it asap.. May be even make a mirv version of shaheen2. Testing or validating parameters of an old missile is gud but keeping in mind indian acquisitions, a supersonic mirv is what we need now.
