so you mean we have to wait until 2020 or late then that for pakistan test ICBM .but its too late . may be that time i also late.
Ok my questions who we are suppose to target with our ICBM in case of any war. Is it america, isreal, russia?
Depends more on a political scenario at the time of testing such a missile (ICBM)...
But for Pakistan it will be dificult to make the world understand for whom it is meant for and also the obvious point is ..a muslim country with ICBM is a threat at large!
India's plans for an ICBM doesn't necessarily mean that we should follow the same path. We have our own defense needs and stratgey. A tit for tat response is not necessary in every matter.
Pakistan has no global military ambitions. Our defense needs are based on the basis of probable threat perceptions to our national security. There is no test any ICBM as a matter of pride only.
Dear Possible surgical air strike missions inside Pakistan is one hell of a scenario.
lets suppose the worst case scenario that USA decides to Carry out strike missions on Pakistan’s strategic installations.
Any such air strikes by USA will be conducted from aircraft carriers. So what are our retaliation options, either try to hit US by ICBM or by to launch air strike and missile on USA aircraft carriers.
If Pakistan's aim is local defence and deterrance with India then stick to IRBMs. Long range missiles of ICBM class are unecessary.
To always avoid an aggression one has to sometimes go for an aggressive approach. If we have an ICBM and we make it clear just like the chinese did to the US, and in a similar manner we made it clear to india, that any action on pakistan, we will respond with nuclear, will be enough to keep US at home. Rest assured conventionaly noone can challenge the superiority of the US not even china at present.
IMO i think we should go for an ICBM rather waiting to get hit.
I know aircraft carrier is equiped to handle all types of threat, from sea, submarine, air and land. But every navy persons admits that no ship or aircraft carreir is invincible no matter how advance it is . An aircraft carrier is much easier target to be destroyed as compared to try to directly hitt a supreme power military power country with an ICBM.
Cruise missile, Anti ship missile , submarine launched missiles, aircraft jets there are dozens of different options available to destroy any aircraft carrier. Despite all defense system on an air craft carrier any country with good air, navy and missile capabilities can easily destroy air carft carrier in open sea. Half a dozen cruise missile launched simultaneously along with exocist missiles can do the job. we have best anti ship missiles.
It is one hell of a task to neutrilize pakistan strike capabilities. We needs more advance missiles systems but, ICBM against USA or allied nato countries will not do the required job.
