[/QUOTE]Well, Iran & North Korea is doing pretty well against USA
No, need to approach US mainland, simply approach from where USA approach to you.
They didn't launch invasion from US mainland.
If hypothetical worst case scenerio arrives then why you not simply nuke them ?
So does we ? Our ICBM, SLBM, SSN & SSBN, BMD, HSTDV, LRCM, SFDRAAM is not for time pass activities.
Means it would be only for Republic Day Parade.
Which already proved obsolete even in 70s.
You are proposing N-SAM, which uses Radar for Search, Track & Guidance. In SEAD mission opponent use Anti Radiation Missile to take out Radars.
Why do you not quote any report of effect of 0.2 Kn nuclear warhead for city like Mumbai or Chennai.
Mind you that you need 100s of Missiles to protect a single Metropolis.
Even Air Travel polution is not enough you wants to burst 1000s of mini nukes in our own sky ?
You are hypotheticaly creating worst case scenerio for India & still against using Nuclear Weapons ?
Sir, there is Bungalow for improvement.
Money burnt on faulty ammo could have bought us 100 new Howitzers, fumes Army
Air Force buys five times more expensive UAV engines: CAG
No point in arguing with you further.
To make you understand, a last try
Pakistan says it will use the Nasr tactical nuclear missiles as a last desperate
measure if all other measures to stop an Indian Strike Corps fail. The missile
will be used on Pakistani soil on an offensive force which enters Pakistan.
Our strategy to use Nuclear SAM' is something similar. Its a defensive measure not an offensive method.
If still you want to argue, then
We will not develop or use nuclear Sam's. The Indian Government will heed your very valuable advice.
