    But,

    Former Foreign Secretary Shyam Saran, had expressed similar sentiments in his speech: " The label on a nuclear weapon used for attacking India, strategic or tactical, is irrelevant from the Indian perspective. A limited nuclear war is a contradiction in terms. Any nuclear exchange, once initiated, would swiftly and inexorably escalate to the strategic level. Pakistan would be prudent not to assume otherwise as it sometimes appears to do, most recently, by developing, and, perhaps, deploying theatre nuclear weapon."

    Russian Tochka demonstrated the devastating and precision strike capabilities in Yemen against Saudi coalition not once but thrice.

    US has similar MGM 140. Russia's LUNA and Tochka. Pakis modified Chinese Weshi Rocket and renamed it as NASR

    Prahar falls in same category. We are among very few nations which develop such Tactical Ballistic Missiles that too in short time.

    Essentially an ability to wipe out Paki offensive capabilities within Minutes.

    Almost all the Tochka or scud models were intercepted successfully by the Sadui PAC 3....

    But Indian Army seems to be actively ignoring Prahaar as it is an indigenous product. If we set up factory in China and export Prahaar from China to India then Army might buy it.

    Firstly Tochka is superior to older Scuds and if Tochka could do this to US equipped Arab coalition than imagine what would superior Prahar do with Pakis and PLA.

    Prahar is superior than Tochka and generation ahead than SCUD
