    Congrats to Pakis... they are ushering into 31st century with these hypersonic IGBM (Inter Galactic Ballistic Missiles) missiles while their sovereignty gets violated on daily basis. :D

    It's a routine launch, nothing new there.
    I'm waiting for the Tipu or Babar naval version to be tested.

    The issue is that those Chinese soldiers feel frustrated as they sometime wanna bitch/ criticize their govt but not allowed inside Chinese territory as per their Evil Autocratic Communist Govt. policies.

    So they intrude inside Indian territory and do picnic by pitching tents and loathe about their own Evil Autocratic Communist Govt. and dream about being Indian citizens where they can put up their views without fearing their lives.

    But when Indian border patrol see them and ask they pack up their tents and go back without even saying "Hello" or even "Ne Hao". Indian Armed Forces has always shown sympathy towards such unlucky people and spare their lives. :lol:

    Was this launch direct response to upcoming Indian missile tests(New Interceptor Missile , Astra BVR Missile and Nirbhay Cruise Missile) or belated response to our IRNSS-1B launch?

    Where can it reach in the middle-east.

    Indian relation with China is peaceful onlee. You don't see Indian and Chinese soldiers killing each other on border.
    Also, there are intrusions from both sides and the difference being Chinese one's are publicized by Indian Media and Indian one's are not by Chinese Media.

    The situation is hugely different from say Iranian-Pakistan and Afghanistan-Pakistan border where Pakis are killed regularly in their own land by Afghanistan and American soldiers :pound:.

    We are working on five different designs including a supersonic missile with a range of 700km.
    We will in due time have a mature BM aresenal with range upto 12.500km but our main priority is to cover all of South Asia and Israel, a capability we have already achieved.
    We should now work on difersifying the range and speed of these missiles and develop an ABM system.

    most interesting !
    Your MAIN priority is to reach Israel ( besides all of South Asia ) ?

    Would you please let us know why Israel ?, most grateful for that !
    Do the Israelis on this forum know that ? Should we have some Israelis on this forum, therefore ?

    Shaheen II was designed to have a range of 2.500km which would cover 90% of India.
    Shaheen III will have a range of 3.500-4.000km and will go well beyond Andaman Islands.

    Israel and Pakistan do not have diplomatic relations with each other, and Pakistan forbids its citizens from going to Israel by putting the legend 'This passport is valid for all countries of the World except Israel' on Pakistani passports.

    Some Israeli leaders have expressed the belief that should diplomatic relations with Pakistan be established, then Pakistan could serve as a bridge between Israel and the Muslim world.

    In 2008, the Israeli Foreign minister stated that "Israel considers Pakistan as its biggest strategic threat" in light of concern over the increasing Taliban threat in Pakistan.

    So basically they hate Israelis cause they speak the truth.
