What the so called analyst keep on forgetting the Pakistani TNWs are not only defensive weapons but can also be used in offensive role to win war quickly against Indian armed forces. There are reasons why we have developed platforms like Babur and RAAD in particular. These two standoff weapons when mated with TNWs can make mince meat of Indians Air bases, command centers, Naval ports and infra, hardened targets, even their strategic bases, etc, all this without having to opt for strategic nuclear options and working below that threshold. Now we can win war without having to destroy their cities and population.

I will go as far as saying that NASR is the "distractor" while the real sucker punch is provided by Babur and RAAD, when talking about TNWs.
Babur can certainly be fitted in a sub and potentially provide us with second strike capabilities, the only downside for now is it's limited range, a low altitude ground hugging cruise missile is impossible to be shot down by any type of SAM whether it is S400 or any other, with a greater range it would truly be an even more lethal weapon to deal with.

This strategy is nothing new as it was NATO plan against Soviet Union because Soviets had 3 times more MBT's than all of Nato combined and the only solution against superior Armored divisions was threat of use of TNW's. If it was a good enough plan for NATO, why would it not be a good plan for Pak Army against advancing Indian Armored Columns.

Basically after so much investment enemy is more then frustrated even US and Israel both as a advisers unable to change a bit, where US has quite a bad record wining the war and Israel in 2006 Lebanon War, had lost "to a very small group of people, 5,000 Hezbollah fighters. We are, at the level of Army and Pakistani's public, quite well aware of the designs of enemy, where clever advisers "after get lost in Afghanistan" are just here to push India high enough to get involve with Pakistan and China. Nuclear war on any scale is very bad for both the countries but sooner or later India have to except Pakistan well "with all the AKHAND-BHARAT concepts" that Pakistan is not like a any other countries sharing boarder with India. Yes Indian can destroy a lot Pakistan but one thing is sure already cornered Pakistan retaliation will make Indian to ground zero. I am wondering who will help Indian to reconstruct itself US or Israel? REALLY...

To put in a nutshell, the enemies are fuming beyond comprehension.

What could be a war scenario this time.

* Indian cannot attack from their Punjab or from Kashmir sides this time because of unrest there will help Pakistan.
* So target could be Sindh "from Indian Bikaner area". [Pakistan army 'exercising' near border adjoining Jaisalmer]
* Indian Air force forward airbases specially "South Western Air Command" in this region can be neutralized by cruse missiles.
* Targeting the radars and stockpiles of munitions like cruse missiles.
* Usage of curse missile will reduced PAF ground attack roll. Where JF-17 can better use as short ranges with the support of "Airborne Early Warning" systems for Air to Air Combat within boarder only.

If planed and execute on surprise bases in few hours there will be minimum air support left for Indian army.
but one thing is sure that India is well aware of, is Kashmir and most probably Indian Punjab could be lost even they haven't start any war from there.

Hi,

Threat of TNW's in cuba stopped the cuban invasion.

But I hope there will be no war in the shadow of TNW

Hi,

Israel losing to 6000 hezbollah fighters---that is a news---.

Pakistan has blundered in dwelling on the utility of the tactical nucs and not strengthening the conventional fighting force---.

Which has given the U S the time to prepare to neutralize & capture the pak nucs at their secure locations.

If they were at 2-3 places---they would already have been neutered---but supposedly---they are spread around 8 plus locations---.

Pakistan military needs to go back to conventional means---the TNW's would ultimately be neutered.

The only thing that would save them would be conventional strength.

IAF can be neutralized in early hours of the hostilities by RAAD armed with TNWs. They can be launched from within Pakistani Air space which will make all Indian western airbases and FOBs redundant.



TNWs and they being tied with NASR is just a smokescreen. The real value of TNWs come when they are mated with standoff weapon systems like RAAD and Babur. Pakistani TNWs are literally size of golf ball, can easily be integrated. The idea is to achieve more with less. Once strike of RAAD and Babur armed with TNWs can achieve what multiple sorties of PAF air assets cannot. These weapons systems can win us war efficiently and quickly without having to cross the strategic threshold.
