    I dont think so its accurate ...the page also mentions MIM-104 Patriot PAC 2 which i highly doubt and has the least probability that Pak would have bought ....i know they were offered once to Pak by US but dont think we bought them ..... apart from SA-17 and HQ-2B all other seems not to be the reality

    No, at this point the PAF is yet to be satisfied with the Chinese HQ-10 and more importantly with the performance specifications it requires from the system. Currently Pakistan is looking for an ABM and while the HQ-19 is there the Russians wont allow a licence to China to sell the system as it is so it may end up coming up with a local Missile guided by a Chinese Radar.
    The HQ-9 was a more realistic contender for a buy since it now as the attractive option of being further developed and improved via the T-LORAMIDS competition. To have a system co-developed by the best friends and allies you have and incorporatig the best of the east and west is nothing short of wonderful.

    Okay, but are we getting any medium to long range SAM? I think it's about time.

    Currently the funds have been eaten up by SAAB, JF-17 and other systems.

    Our strategy is smaller warheads(25-40kt) but in quantity..a warhead of such size can destroy a city twice the size of hiroshima

    our strategy should be building atleast 250 such size warheads than we can opt for some megatons later on as well(onwards 2020)

    If we count
    India has odd 200 cities(source wiki) and Pakistan 66.

    Now Pakistan top 60 cities has a population of 42millions

    while indian only top 10 cities population is 60+millions

    so the maximum damage considering population circa will be always on there side..atleast 3 times that of pakistan death toll

    i might be wrong but smaller one by size are difficult to produce not by yield

    miniaturization of a warhead yet powerful is something hard and need to have plutonium based

    Pakistan currently has 4 active Plutonium producing reactors..The initial one commissioned in 1997 had a capacity of upto 14kg per year

    the 4th and the latest one is/was suppose to be build because of pakistan future interest in thermonuclear weapons(based on a western source)
