Launching 20 AshMs against one destroyer, is such an intelligent thing.Sirf economic nahi... intellectual bankruptcy bhi hai porki qaum ki
20 - (15+4) = 5
20 missiles fired... 19(15+4) intercepted & "5" struck target
Khud dekh lo... in the graphic.
It is less about past and more about delusions fed to the minds of Pakistani populace by establishment as a positive propaganda about national achievements. Just like future generations of Pakistanis will cover their "reality check" with "past glory" as Pakistani propaganda on its population today will be documented as history in their own society.That only Pakis remember about their so called "glorious" past is really unfair. I have seen Pakis repeatedly dream about how their space program was more advanced than India and even Asia. I have seen them repeatedly talk about their small patches of economic progress in 1960's which even South Korea took inspiration from.
Pakistan wasn't following any kind of economic model South Korea embraced. It was a key US station with foreign aid making large part of GDP, with proto industrial economy which never bothered to industrialise up, just living off concessional leverages (like Bangladesh is doing today) and headed towards a permanent low income trap. Pak didn't break Soviet Union, USA did.
Similarly, Pak wasn't any kind of advanced space power. It was mere importing and launching American sounding rockets. China and India meanwhile were far capable industrially and technologically in missile and rocket technology. It was just a matter of time when they had to start their space programs and surpass entire Asia except Japan in no time.
It's an obvious thing that small countries take every initiative for the sake of symbolism and move with little steps with foreign assistance. Big countries meanwhile with all their resources and experience, make their mind at once and leap ahead equivalent to their global positions. After a decade, it doesn't really matter who started before them. Pakistan was never a regional or even a middle power. It was just a small power in class of Nigeria, Bangladesh or New Zealand. Problem is there that it coned itself and its population to believe that it was some kind of regional counter balance to India and messed its future permanently up into a darker LDC class low income state for decades now.
State sponsored propaganda against its own people didn't work out well with Pakistan.
