that speed example; Concorde versus Boeing which craft is faster concord is faster.
You're thoroughly confused about air breathing engines going at mach speeds in excess of mach 7-8.
What Japan and the US X-43 are doing are hypersonic SCRAMJETS which are not purely rocket-propelled. Now cruising at hypersonic speeds using a
scramjet engine is what is being achieved there.
What you're talking about is a ballistic missiles which have NO air breathing Engine and only rocket propellant!!! The re-entry stage is FREE-FALL!!!
Thats why its called BALLISTIC.
Look up ballistic in a dictionary. Free-falling projectile!!!
ALL ballistic missiles have re-entry AND terminal velocities in the range of mach 10 and beyond. That wikipedia article on the shaheen said mach 10
and that doesn't mean its super fast!! The guy who posted that wiki must've thought that important enough to post not considering the fact that ALL
ballistic missiles have terminal velocities in that range.
Please read up on ballistic missile flight the stages and the speeds. You will be enlightened.
Also read up on scramjet technology and countries pursuing the same. India is one of them btw.
About the Dsmac and Tercom it is a theory not OFFICIAL.
Glad we got that bit cleared up.
About the Agni being hypersonic that i wont believe because then japan is trying to make a hypersonic rocket so that it can make future space travel
to other continents if India made it first why is japan buying the Agni same goes to Germany. so that statement it has no weight.
Again read up on scramjet engines and ballistic missile theory. You really need to do that before connecting disjoint pieces of information.
About the possibility carry the shaheen is possible by creating ship which can carry such missiles like i said this is how Russia played the
chicken game, about the baburi saw a Russian cruise missile similar to it you should bare in mind that distance depends on the propulsion system.
I didn't understand your english.Can you re-phrase?
And no again you didnt understand that i did not mean that the nishan mk2j turbo jet was used in the babur telling you that a country that can design
and build cruise missiles first needs to design the jet engine and a jet engine that is compact that capabilities were shown in i believe in 2001 so
during the space of let say 4 years they were able to design a more stronger jet engine.
so DOUBLING engine capacity in 4 years? Is there some formula?
Ok forget this bit. We'll just wait and watch.
Again what i found on the sites could be in your opinion Pakistani fora then again i mostely used wikipedia which if you scroll down was using those
sites as well.
stalemate..lets leave it..
But all your sources came from an extremist military site I went there and some of the quotes of the members is disgraceful they hat "Muslims" woo
nothing of such was from my sources especially on news point of view.
You wen to the fora portion. The members there often express their opinions many of which even I don't agree with. Those aren't the same people who
write articles on military hardware. Anyways lets not get into muslim-hating etc. because all that is irrelevant. All govt and military institutions
in India are secular.
Well you did strongly disagree on a true fact that the Pakistanis have an up to date missile system come on you wont find that it is wrong to say that
after all it is alleged that it is a mix bag of the most advance Asian missile systems. But it is not yet proven so i heard that the Pakistani missile
system is quiet hash hash.
maybe because its not all indigenous and maybe of chinese origin?
Lets wait for more independant news on this missile.
Look the Indians have an edge on Pakistan with western tech and the Pakistanis have mostely invested in self reliance is that something agree able
after all the Americans are going to give the F-16 when Israel is friends with India so why did the Pakistanis invest in the FC-1 or was it JF-1.
The economy and infrastructural capabilities of Pakistan are incapable of sustaining technological advancements like you claim.
About the Us we must agree that the Pakistanis were using their own UAVs and India was using sophisticated Israeli UAVs, why i brought this topic of
UAVs because most cruise missiles are virst UAVs dependent and then turned into cruise missiles.
No such thing. You're just extending the Pakistan analogy.
And no I was based at any point of my argument, and by saying that there is a similar tech produced by Pakistan is not saying that it could be exact
after all I said that the software was coded.
I never said you were biased. You said i was biased. I'm not. I'm just hesitant to swallow what is coming from pakistani fora.
