Pakistan test-fires N-capable Hatf-VIII missile after india Test fire Agni III


timesofindia.indiatimes.com

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Thursday test-fired the nuclear-capable Hatf-VIII air-launched cruise missile, which its military said would enhance its capability to strike at targets on land and at sea.

The test of the Hatf-VIII or Raad missile, which has a range of 350 kilometres, was part of a "continuing process of validating the design parameters of the weapon system", said a statement from the military. The statement did not say where the missile was tested.

I think India is ahead in range and Pakistan have to understand India tested their missile because last week china deployed nuclear submarine in Indian ocean

lol the tech spech says it all when it comes to Pakistan vs India in military terms.

India's Agni III range : 3500km

Pakistan's Hatf range: 350km

What is interesting is that these are aerial launched weapons... which makes air supremacy before launch a must. However if the Agni is capable of a range of 3500km, it could concievably be launched from inside Indian territory making air supremacy unecessary.

This could have been a measure to deter China from making power plays in the Indian ocean, but its also likely that it was a standard exchange show of military might which has been happening since the mid 70s with the Smiling Buddha Indian nuke tests.

We Pakistani are no longer competing with rival India, However i want to mention Pakistan do have long range missile like that can go as far as 3000km, however why the heck do we need such long range missile when india is just next door to us, we don't need such long range missile if we ever to attack them, having said that, we obviously are not competing with India ... that is far bigger country than our, and they spend 10 times more money than us on their military budget....

However there is no country who would ever like to attack us, Because we have have got the most technological nuclear devices... and President Mushraff had said once, that we can not afford any long term war or that any type of war that would take more than 15 days granted the military capability of India, therefore ultimately we would be forced to Nuclear weapons for our survival..!!!

Since then India has been on good terms with us, rather i would say both countries have been friendly to each other for last 8 years or so ..... and People of both countries want to live peacefully with each side by side...!!!

There is no more hatred towards India in Pakistan since after both country have shown serious interest to work with each and resolve all issues and disputes through dialog..

Not sure thats strictly true my pakistani friend


Kargil in 1999 could have turned into all out war.

ISI support of the terrorist bombing of Delhi in 2001 and 2005 could have caused war.

ISI sponsorship of SIMI's terrorist bombings of the Bombay train network could have led to war.

Indian intelligence service RAW's activities in sabotaging Taliban forces in Afghanistan is causing tensions.

The indian airforce base Farkhor-Ayni in Tajikistan is a serious concern to Pakistan.

But youre right, the peace process is moving in the right way. It all depends on how stable Pakistan's transition to democracy is.

that is one childish remarks buddy!!!

Most Pakistani want to get rid of extremist in northern area and by the way, that area is like a foreign land to us, we never deemed it as a part of Pakistan ever nor we as common citizens of Pakistan were allowed to go there even before the 9/11.

As regard to democracy, we are learning it's only been 60 years since we got liberated from UK man... we are learning and it takes time man....!!!

You have democracy and no Privacy ... in US... and they fool you and rip off taxpayers money on wars that don't benefit people of US... and then you are made feel you are safer when you are infact more vulnerable to attacks ... get played into tricks of other nations like Israel and you end up loosing rest of your money giving to them as aid... !!! Where you money is going man... on Wars and on Aid to Israel??? .. think twice before you denounce any other nation

Yes you are right we have serious issues with India however as you might notice things are moving in right direction for last 7/8 year or since 2000... or after the Kargil... both countries have realized that no one can defeat each other on the base of Military capability...
