Pakistan tests short-range nuke-capable missile

Source: Press TV

Pakistani military says it has successfully test-fired a short-range missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

According to a statement released by Pakistan’s military on Monday, “NASR missile, which can carry strategic and conventional weapons over a distance of 60 kilometers, has in-flight maneuver capability to carry nuclear warheads of appropriate yield with high accuracy.”

“NASR has been specially designed to defeat all known Anti Tactical Missile Defence Systems,” it added.

This comes after Pakistan successfully conducted the launch of a medium-range ballistic missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads in November, 2012.

3. Chinese made missile with North Korean designs

Pakistan is a terrorist country and shouldn't be allowed to have such weapons.

If we complain about Iran having weapons, why do we allow Pakistan to have them?

7. Complaints are only made to countries that are developing nukes.


Once they have them then it is harder to attack. You can never be sure that in an exchange one of their nukes might survive and find it way to airburst over US interests.

That's some sophisticated Warhead design to get it in that small of a delivery system.

5. Nows that's gonna make the Indians feel all warm and fuzzy...

...now add the fact that Pakistan is the most politically unstable nuclear armed nation on earth. Oh, this is just wonderful news. It's one thing to have nukes. It's altogether another to have advanced, reliable delivery systems.
