    Guys please have your views on whether india should continue with its ballistic missile defense programs or it should concentrate on simple and effective ballistic missiles . Discuss which one is better suited for india in the long run.

    Apples and oranges i would say. We need both. Even if the protection ratio os BMD is small, at least we will save some cities and population in case of a first strike by others. And obviously we need a good ballistic missile system to make sure the enemy will face music in retaliation.

    The title should be modified.

    India needs both a Credible Ballistic Missile system and an equally Effective Anti Ballistic Missile System.
