Capabilities of Missiles in South Asia

India tested its Agni Missile and it was unsuccessful as it does not have terminal guidance system as compared to Shaheen-II.The warhead went 15 to 20 meters deep into the ground and created a crater of 10 to 12 meters radius. The destroyed parts of the warhead scattered in around one kilometer area.It reached its target in 7 minutes.After successful test-firing of the Shaheen missile on April 15, one observer said on an Indian television channel, "Pakistan could not have prepared a missile like Shaheen". This remark is the biggest compliment to the engineers and scientists of the National Development Complex. [/quote]

I feel you're taking a course of point-scoring versus. whatever nation you don't particularly like, Faisal_Masud. Please don't. It's the internet. This is an international forum. Now you have certainly improved since your last post, evidence and all, but invented titles such as 'Worst Missile in Asia' are generally unnecessary, yet provocative. A Mod could explain it...Check the rules again, mate.

The test took place five years ago...What do you think? Isn't there a Shaheen-II?

Faisal, you are new so consider this a request:

Don't come up with stupid titles in order to disrespect Indians on this board or india in general. You would not like if same disrespect was given to Pakistan/Pakistanis. Give everyone their due respect and discuss on basis of facts, back your self up with news article/information of some sort.

Follow this link and read it - if you follow these you will gain our respect.

PS: This is a request. Next time it will be a warning and you may not see the "third time."

Re: Capabilities of Missiles in South Asia

Okay from globalsecurity.org:

PAKISTAN"S NUCLEAR ARSENAL
http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/wo...an/missile.htm

Hatfs - 60-280km (Payload=500kg)
Shaheen I ~ 800km (Payload=500kg)
Shaheen II ~ 2000km (to be tested next month)
Ghauri III ~ 2500km (under development)


INDIA's NUCLEAR ARSENAL
http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/wo...ia/missile.htm

Prithvi I ~ 150km (Payload= 1000kg !!!)
Prithvi II ~ 250km (Payload= 500kg)
Agni I ~ 800km
Agni II ~ 2500km (Payload= 1000kg)
Surya ~ 12,000km (Under development)


We can sit here and argue all day about whose guidance systems are better.. but that would be a waste of time..

We should compare and appreciate and not underestimate the arsenals of either..

Western sources have already started adding versions of DPRK missiles in pakistans inventory claiming tht a purchase of Taepo Dong missile is not far. Now how can this be true when the missile hasnt even been flight tested and all? Anyway, abt the Ghauri, i think its basically incorporating basic features from the Nodong with a few additions from KRL. Wat do u think?

Re: Capabilities of Missiles in South Asia

I think it has a better guidance system than that of the No dong.It uses inertial guidance system.It is mainly for nuclear delivery purpose and not for highly tactical use.I think the KRL shoukld develope a long rang cruise missile.

I don't think Pakistan has any ties with DPRK anymore so the purchase of Taepo Dong is just a fantasy

Re: Capabilities of Missiles in South Asia

The Integrated Guided Missile Development Program (IGMDP) was formed in 1983 with the aim of achieving self-sufficiency in missile development & production and today comprises of five core missile programs ---> the strategic Agni ballistic missile, the tactical Prithvi ballistic missile, the Akash and Trishul surface-to-air missiles and the Nag anti-tank guided missile. The program has given India the capability to produce indigenous missiles in other key areas and a few 'known' missiles under development have been listed below. By enforcing the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) to stop supplies of all kinds of missile material, Western nations are trying to prevent India from developing these strategic and tactical missiles. Undaunted by this high-level conspiracy, hats off to all the brilliant Indian scientists who have toiled so hard, in their dedicated efforts, that they managed to develop these missiles.

Why is every person looking at Balastic Missiles. We all know of the Anti-balastic missile systems being developed. The future of missiles lies in Cruise missiles. THAT WHAT I FEEL.

Faisal, you need to shed some light on the issue.

Give us your opinion about each missile and then facts/figures/stats on each missile. Tell us why you think particular missile can do its job better than others.

Put some water in your posts so others feel the need to reply.

Thanks, enjoy!!!

Re: Capabilities of Missiles in South Asia

You just forget one important milestone India has crossed in the field of missiles.

India had developed and successfully test fired Land based cruse missile with range of 300Km. on last Dec. 2003.

This cruse missile is on the line of Bhramos Anti Ship missile.

Now its in on the way of serial production and deployment.

With the deplyment of cruse missile ,India army will armed with much more potent destruction.

The Brahmos is a Yakhont. Its development has been a work in progress by the russians for a number of years.

Although India has had considerable input into the shared project, the fundamentals of the missile were already there. Its a tried system. Most of Indias work has involved integration into indigenous systems.

Thats not meant to diminish the importance of co-design work, but its core capability was developed some years ago.

although , it is based o russian design , but the thing is that India develoed its gudiance system from the scratch.

Developing the guidance system for land based cruse missile is a important milestone.

Certainly, I wasn't trying to diminish the efforts, just adding some extra fact that some in here may not be aware of.
