Pakistan has tested its first home built cruise missile.

Presumably if Pakistan develops the ability to reduce the size of its nukes India will get very worried.

No idea of the accuracy or range yet but as this is a first test presumably this will increase.

The scientists inviolved described it as a birthday present for General Musharaff.

I think new nose hair trimmers may have been more appropiate.

Or maybe a new tie.

true true


anyway. this cruise missle is supposed to be able to hug the terrain like the tomahawk and unlike the joint indo-russian brahmos. wonder which one is better though. but then again comparisons cant be drawn as of now as very little is known about the HATF VII Babur

But its a very very credible development, if it is indigenously developed.

here is another link about it

us.rediff.com...

the link says the HATF VII is not supersonic though. can anyone confirm that

I wouldnt think it would be difficult to say reverse engineer an older cruise missile (say the kingfisher) and then rebadge it as your own. It would give extra kudos to the Pakistani Military and maybe force the Indians to think about employing expensive countermeasures.

the Chinese give them the technology / blueprint

remember years back the political thunderstorm it caused when CIA discovered that the Chinese gave the Bomb blueprint to the Pakistan?

you aren't see nothing yet, Iran too will have nuke, we need a multipolar world.

the American never learn, butt out of Taiwan and the world will be a much safer place, Taiwan is part of China, end and over.

the American craze for world dominant and unipolar geopolitical influence will one day bring the world on a one way ticket to DOOM

Just having nukes is not the only criterion for becoming a superpower..
Even with all those cruise missiles, Pakistan can still be crushed by India in under a fortnight..Conventionally speaking of course..
What nukes do is deter thats all..

I remember once and Indian journalist was invited in a delegation to china..
Some minister who chaired the meeting spoke a great deal about the necessity for a multipolar world and how it would balance many factors..
When asked on who these poles exactly would be he replied:
but of course US,Russia, Europe and China..
The minister then requested everyone to proceed for dinner..
The indian journalist then asked one more question..
"Sir you speak of a multipolar world, but why do you restrict Asia to remain as a unipolar continent when clearly there is much potential over here for more than one superpower?"
The chinese minister replied "Let us proceed to dinner"...


China's ideas of multipolarism are quite china-centric and ironically very uni-poalristic..

Ice cold Beer + a hot sauna (~90C ) = the Finnish saturday night
There's nothing that beats it. Trust me i know what i'm talkin about

And after the sauna straight to the lake (ifpossible) or to a little swim in the snow
