    Shaheen-III – No Game Changer

    Pakistan on Monday successful test-fired a new ballistic Surface to Surface missile (SSM) Shaheen-3 capable of carrying nuclear, conventional warheads with a range of 2750 KMs. Shaheen-III according to the range is longest ranged missile developed by Pakistan.

    Reaction in Pakistani media was of Euphoria of the new missile, Some News Anchor were seen saying ” India now will be forced to talk to Pakistan now on Kashmir “. Another Retired Military expert was seen saying that ” Now Pakistan can hit whole of India even their Northeastern frontiers, India cannot hide anywhere ” and other Retired military personnel commented. “It’s all a reaction to India, which has now gone even for tests of extra-regional missiles. .?.?. It sends a loud message: If you hurt us, we are going to hurt you back.”

    While in India coverage of Pakistanis New ballistic missiles was limited to Print media and no coverage was seen on Television news channels. Talk to any Indian defense pundit he will immediate dismiss it as “No Game Changer ” for Pakistan like they want India to believe, it does not increase threat perception towards India nor creates imbalance in Missile technology race in South Asia , where India is far ahead of arch rival Pakistan in development of missile technology.

    Pakistan claims that it is newly developed missile also seems dubious since, from Shaheen-II claimed range of 2500km to Shaheen-III claimed range of 2750km only brings in minor improvement in range, nor it has better payload carrying capability and missile seems more of improved variant of Shaheen-II . What is more Questionable is that It took Pakistan 11 years to develop Shaheen-III which only brings in minor range improvement and clearly doesn’t possess technologies to defeat Anti-Ballistic Missiles which India has developed.

    Missile also does not improve Pakistani security Scenario or credible deterrence against India’s retaliation, Since India already has tested Medium range Submarine launch K-4 ballistic missiles which as range of 3500km and are close to being Integrated with its Nuclear submarines and development of Phase-II of India’s Anti-Ballistic Missiles program is seen as effort to take down missile fired from more than 5000km which will also cover present and future missiles developed by Pakistan.

    Because earlier it was said Shaheen II has range of 2500 KM.

    If its max range is 2000 KM according to sources then may be it is game changer.

    BTW Shaheen II weighs 25 tons and has max range of 2000 KM according to new sources while Agni 4 has max range of 4000 KM, depite weighing 17 tons.

    Shaheen II payload is only 50 KG more than that of Agni 4.

    No 1050 KG is total weight of Reentry vehicle per wiki. While A 4 can carry 1.0 ton Payload only. So A 4 carries much more weight compared to Shaheen .

    First the Missile can reach whole of India that is enough game changer than it carries enough war head to wipe out the city and if not using nuclear than enough to take out lot of area and things and people in that area. Shaheen III range is more than what is declared and more improvements would also come soon. Work on Submarine based Missiles is on and will be tested soon along with lot of new Aerial Missiles and Land Based Cruise Missiles.

    Both India & Israel have ABM shields. This missile is no real threat. A shorter range missile with less time to react is more of an threat than this.

    It's not easy since india is already in its phase-2 of ABM sheild it's clearly stated that missile don't have any improvements to counter advance ABM's of India

    Unless pakistan do some game changer improvements in its missiles like add MIRV capabilities till now it took 11 years for you to develop Shaheen-3 which has minor improvements in its actual capability of Shaheen-2.rest all is exaggerated facts still on papers.

    How can it be a game changer unless its MRIV. Its just a missile with extended range to cover further cities of India. Even without this missile we had enough range to cover most of India which would had been more than enough if nuclear holocaust was to be repeated.
    Yellow journalism from our side.

    Man You Indians are seriously funny the best Missile shield of Israel found it hard to stop every rocket of Hamas which are known pathetic rockets and you think you can stop Missiles please live in this delusion and don't worry we are not going to fire one Missile several of them will come

    And We never reveal any improvement other than speed event that sometime not true we hide many times so keep thinking we have improved nothing
