    MISSILE DEFENSE BRIEFING REPORT NO. 65, August 6, 2002
    American Foreign Policy Council, Washington, DC

    Editor: Ilan Berman

    A SHIFTING BALANCE OF POWER IN SOUTH ASIA...

    Despite official optimism, India’s ballistic missile program is facing serious difficulties, writes Pravin Sawhney in the July 30th Pioneer. After a strong initial start in the 1980s, New Delhi’s Integrated Guided Missiles Development Program, or IGMDP, is now suffering from several critical shortcomings, the paper reports. Among them is the unwieldiness of the “Prithvi” short-range missile, which still relies on liquid, rather than solid, propellant, and is incapable of penetrating hardened targets because of its low terminal velocity. New Delhi’s “Agni” class of advanced rockets, meanwhile, is struggling with deficiencies in command and control, and has not yet been optimally integrated into the country’s national security structure.


    Pakistan, on the other hand, is well on its way to fielding one of the world’s most advanced ballistic missile systems. The Rawalpalindi Jang (August 1) reports that after months of development by Islamabad’s National Engineering and Scientific Commission (NESCOM), the “Shaheen” medium-range missile will soon be tested by the Pakistani armed forces. According to sources cited by the paper, once the 750-kilometer range rocket is operational, it will be capable of defeating prospective Indian missile defenses, such as the Arrow Theater Missile Defense system New Delhi is in the process of acquiring from Israel.

    No doubt...

    Indian still dont have their old ass Agni in production, they have been working on it since the late 80's and its still not in production, shame shame...

    Plus, I want the indians to test their missile so pak can have an excuse to test the new Shaheen-3 ABM(Anti-ballistic missile), this missile will overpower the Arrow ABM which Indians got from Israel...

            Thats pretty cool-but are missiles alone enough to counter India's overwhelming advantage in conventional air power. I mean however good our pilots are, they have so much advanced AF stuff, that they could potentially Ko our sites b4 a full fledged pakistani attack is launched.

            Still cool news-Pakistan really should try and develop SLBM capacity to ensure a second strike ability.

              I dont think they could KO anything, Pakistan is defenseive while India is offensive. Its much easier for us. I doubt the Indian planes will make it anywhere near our targets.
