Pakistan tests Shaheen-1A surface-to-surface ballistic missile


Pakistan has reported on the testing of the new Shaheen-1A surface-to-surface ballistic missile. These tests became a serious event for the Islamic republic, which for many years has been busy with the modernization of its weapons, primarily to confront its main enemy - neighboring India, with which Pakistan has a long-standing conflict rooted in more than seventy years history section of British India.

According to the communiqué of the Pakistani armed forces, the tests of the new missile were aimed at re-checking the technical characteristics of the system. But more detailed information about the missile in the command of the Pakistani army did not disclose, limiting itself only to dry lines of the report on the test.

It is known that the general director of the strategic planning department, Lieutenant General Nadim Zaki Manj and the commander of the strategic forces of the army, Lieutenant General Muhammad Ali, as well as a large group of scientists and engineers from various military and industrial organizations, were present at the test.

The army authorities highly appreciated the tests carried out and congratulated scientists and engineers on the success of their brainchild - a new ballistic missile. The military thanked the scientists for their skill, loyalty to the state and commitment to their work. Also, the creators of the rocket received letters of gratitude from Pakistani President Arif Alvi, Prime Minister Imran Khan and senior officials of the Ministry of Defense.

Previously, similar tests were carried out in March 2021. Then the army announced the successful launch of the Shaheen 1-A medium-range ballistic missile with a total mass of 9,5 tons. A missile with a range of up to 900 kilometers is capable of carrying a 35 kt nuclear warhead, which adds cause for concern to Pakistan's neighbors, primarily India. There is no doubt that Islamabad will continue the course of further developing its nuclear and missile potential, especially in the context of unresolved conflicts with neighboring India.

    But the threat to the world is seen in the Iranian program.

    This is the reason to deploy in Poland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Norway ............. a missile defense system, as well as short- and medium-range missiles.
    It is clear to everyone against the Iranian nuclear program.

    As you can see, 9K72 "Elbrus" is more alive than all living things.

    Well, for 35kt, you need a very small CEP, otherwise there is no sense ... this is essentially an analogue of tactical nuclear weapons, just with delivery at 900 km and as a psychological one for shooting in cities, etc. where the KVO is not so important. The news is incomprehensible even good or bad ... bad for neighbors, good for Pakistan lol

    ZY But the nuclear club only helps to maintain sovereignty, judging by the statistics in history. in the United States there was an idea of ​​a limited local nuclear war (using TNW), but now I don’t remember whether they refused or not recourse

      Why? It is quite possible to have ammunition norms in order to strike, for example, an Air Force base. Hit the cities ... but why? There are still more Indians, except as a gesture of despair. After the strike on the city, Pakistan will not live.

        For an air force base, it is enough to damage its runway ... for this, an ordinary warhead will be enough ... of course - here you need a good CEP, which is actually leveled by the nuclear part ... but I do not think that it will destroy the runway samo ... most likely themselves aircraft + radioactive contamination, because Warheads uranium / plutonium and navryatli they have clean charges - there is no technology 100%

          bullet a ballistic missile with a conventional warhead is a waste
          + as you said yourself, the CQI is an extremely important thing.
          Therefore, putting a "payfway" to some Americans on the strip of Iraq during the years of Hussein is one thing, but the Pakistanis - I doubt that someone will allow them to fly around India like this with impunity on airplanes and throw bombs.
          Because the nuclear weapons on the Air Force base is the most it. 100% guarantee.

            For Pakistanis, it is the most of course. In Iraq, the states first of all destroyed the air defense ... and then they walked like at the funeral of their mother-in-law and tore 2 button accordions. Air defense + aviation / missiles + tanks it's like stones / scissors / paper
            TNW for T55 + are essentially not scary with such power, but I agree - they will deprive the enemy of aviation and air supremacy. That is why the same states contain these AUG

    A missile with a range of up to 900 kilometers is capable of carrying a 35 kt nuclear warhead,
    On Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in 1945, the Americans dropped 16,5 and 20 kt. accordingly This is to compare future misfortunes.

      In my opinion, such a consortium has long been established. I met information that the DPRK was helping Iran's missile program.
