Pakistan to Launch Long-Range Missile, Informs India

Just days after India successfully test fired its first Inter Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM), Agni-V, Pakistan has said that it plans to conduct a long-range missile test.

According to Indian Media, Pakistan has informed India that it plans to conduct a long-range missile test in the Indian Ocean over the next five days.

Pakistan has asked New Delhi to issue a notice to all commercial airlines to steer clear of the area.

The move by Pakistan comes just five days after India test fired Agni-V to join the elite club of ICBM nations.

Agni-V, the ICBM test fired by India five days ago, is capable of carrying nuclear warheads and will be crucial for India’s defence against China. The missile can carry a pay-load of 1 tonne, is 17 m long, 2 m wide and weighs 50 tonnes. After the missile is inducted into India’s strategic forces by 2014-2015, India will acquire a strong deterrent capacity against China.

Agni-V can cover entire China, Eastern Europe, North Eastern and Eastern Africa and even Australia if fired from the Nicobar Islands.

Only the permanent members of the UN Security Council – China, Russia, France, the United States and the United Kingdom – have such long distance missiles. Israel, too, is believed to posses ICBMs although there is no official confirmation of the same.

The missile has a range of 5,000 kilometres, a marked improvement over India’s current missiles which can hit potential enemy targets over a distance of just 3,500 kilometres.

Pakistan is the fort of islam & all the muslim countries (except afghanistan which is the left hand of india) are looking toward this fort of islam to enhance its defence capabilities in all aspects. beside these pakistan has lot of enemies in which the india is top most but its pride for us(all pakistanis) that each inch of india is in the range of pakistani missiles, but i think its not enough and pakistan has to increase the range of its missiles so that each inch of the world comes under the range of pakistani nuclear missiles…
