Very good thread AhaseebA
thanks for detailed information
SUPARCO had conducted more than 200 solid fuel rocket launches and tests in 1960s and 70s.
Most solid fuel rockets of Pakistan are derivatives of these early experiments.
SUPARCO can build a rocket large enough for being an ICBM...but that will create many diplomatic issues..
he he he he what a thread good job @ Ahaseeba
Only Hatf-I made it out as a successful derivative, the rest were one way or the other based on DF-11 technology (except Ghauri, Shaheen-IA, Shaheen-II).
SUPARCO can, but they lack the expertise of developing large rocket motors like that of NDC and KRL.
Heard that Ghouri Series Missiles have been put in Bunkers because it has some faults.... Also Ghouri-3 has been stopped for the same purpose...
Salam PAK Fauj <3
Thanks for summarizing the information! great work AhaseebA
Pakistan is retiring Ghauri Missile series and further consolidating solid-fueled Shaheen series.
Bad news for Pakistan....
No. It actually shows us how advance and powerful our ballistic missile program has become, Mashallah.
Ghauris were liquid-fueled weapon-systems. We don't need them anymore since we have much more advance and sophisticated options.
The shaheen series is a superior platform & is solid fuel..
It is also more effective, if you look at the developments on The Shaheen 1-A the missile is more effective and able to hit its target.
I suspect the uprade/improvements will be implemented on the othere missiles in the series.
The reality is at the end of the 1990's and early 2000's Pak and India were largely equal, since then however we have had no $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
So we have had to pick and choose our fights & developments, money is allocated to vital requirments, so once we reach a milestone on one platform we take a breather keed the development going on a slower basis and keey an eye on our enmies and world development of technologies so we dont get behind
At the same time money is then allocated to the next vital military requirment
If we had the money we already would have had 6 new subs, a long range missile etc
But because money is short its more important that we make the weapon systems we have effective, so its more important to make sure our missile hit india rather then make some 5000km missile when we dont have an immediate threat at that range
Having said all that, the plans are in place to buy a whole range of platforms from Subs, to jets, it will just take time
The 'grand dad' of all Indian Solid fuel missiles,SLV tasted its first Success in 1980,when it successfully launched a satellite to LEO.
First test of Agni TD was on 1989( range of 2,500 km and a payload of 1,000 kg ).The development of Agni III,Shaurya started in late 1990s as well as first test of Agni II.
Not largely equal,India always had an edge,due to the ' spin offs' of Space program & extensive R&D.
you are right, Pakistan is greater than India in terms of military strength ^_^
With world record of more than 93000 POW after WWII.
Wow thats what you inferred from my post?? You are truly a genius....
