    According to Japan Times, Pakistan's Hatf-V or Ghauri missile is a complete failure owing to faulty guidance system. According to the newspaper, a retired Pakistani nuclear scientist has claimed that former Pakistani leader Gen. Pervez Musharraf's 1999 military adventurism in the Kargil region of divided Kashmir failed in part because the North Korea-aided, nuclear-capable Ghauri missiles he wanted to deploy then had a faulty guidance system.

    The Pakistani scientist said that during the Kargil crisis of May-July 1999, Musharraf, who was then army chief, “wanted to deploy Ghauri missiles, but air went out of his balloon when the top general in charge of the missile program told him the missile had a faulty guidance system.”

    On April 6, 1998, Pakistan had carried out what it described as a successful first test of the intermediate-range ballistic missile, developed by Khan Research Laboratory with North Korean assistance. Even Musharraf, who witnessed that Ghauri launch as a local corps commander, had been led to believe it was a success then, according to the nuclear scientist, who until recently had long been closely associated with the country’s nuclear and missile programs.

    The truth according to the scientist is that the ballistic missile failed to reach its predesignated impact point in Pakistan’s southwestern province of Baluchistan and its debris could not be found. Making this public would have undermined the missile’s deterrent effect and therefore the Pakistani armed forces establishment lied to the Pakistan and the world and it was declared as a success.

    These guys just know how to paint these missiles in green colour which they acquire from the North Koreans and the Chinese.

    ghauri series missiles production was stopped by musharaf and they are already being phased out.

    Whether they are dud or ok this should not be the concern of missiles not in service.

    Though shaheen series missiles are regarded as the killer of south Asian youth
