Pakistan: India’s efforts to improve the accuracy range of the missile against China
India test-fired Agni III strategic missile made
ATHENS (Reuters): Pakistan News (The News) Web site contains the text of India 3, to create land, sea and air forces to conduct the analysis, said the long-term words, India trying to develop their own nuclear forces and conventional forces at sea to achieve strategic balance against China. The article also mentioned that India is committed to improving the long-range missile range and accuracy, in order to combat potential targets in China.
article said, India has launched its first domestic nuclear submarine fleet, which makes it once again noted that India’s growing military capability and ambitions to become global players. Obviously, when the 6000-ton “body count” was with the other two (or four) at the same level nuclear submarines fitted out in 2020, when India’s strategic posture and balance will be a huge step forward.
The article said that India’s nuclear theory of sea, land and air attack capability-based, and adhere to the “no first use of nuclear weapons.” Now, nuclear submarines has become a part of India’s nuclear theory. The main reason that submarine-launched nuclear weapons, nuclear power is very important, because it can provide second-strike capability.
article said that the submarine is an underwater platform to launch nuclear weapons, because of its characteristics with the silent and invisible, it is difficult to detect by sonar and radar, which can be relatively safe to take action . Moreover, they can avoid enemy detection by, to escape the first round of the enemy attack. Compared with diesel-electric submarines, nuclear-powered submarines obvious advantage lies in its infinite endurance, which makes it possible for a long time in the underwater activity has remained high gear. This is what the United States, France and other countries to abandon the production of conventional submarines, only the production of nuclear-powered submarines of the main reasons.
article said, “body count” was also on the technical aspects of India’s major breakthrough. Need to master the production of a submarine, including the development of pressurized water reactors, reactor containment, turbine, sonar systems and sound navigation and ranging, long-wave communication systems, and system integration, including a variety of techniques.
The article said that in addition to submarines in addition, India has also developed a submarine-launched missiles. In fact, in the process of development of submarine-launched missiles, from Russia’s support to India’s production design, production and major components, training equipment and personnel training, etc. rather benefit. Moreover, France, Israel and other countries are also in the process to provide assistance to India. In the long run, India trying to develop their own nuclear forces and conventional forces at sea to achieve strategic balance against China.
article pointed out that India is the introduction of nuclear submarines in order to eliminate the power asymmetry between India – China has 11 submarines, 60 conventional submarines, and recently it also introduced three new nuclear submarines . At the same time, India also plans in the next decade will be expanded to another 40 ships in its surface fleet.
article said that India and China Construction naval forces are designed to enhance their own purpose in the Indian Ocean, the Gulf and the Strait of Malacca influence. They tried to cast the military to protect the sea lanes. Among them, India’s ambition to get the support of the United States and Russia.
The article said that in addition to actively develop the Indian sea power, the air force is also being expanded, the air force modernization. The plan from the United States, Russia and France, the introduction of 126 4th and 5th generation multi-purpose fighter, to phase out the old Emi Ge fighter squadron and the Indian space to add 10 aircraft squadrons. Moreover, following the initial procurement stage, India will focus on the construction of domestic aircraft production line.
article said that if the United States to sell India a few days ago and the co-production of F-18 “Hornet” E/F series fighter’s proposal is implemented, then India’s transport system will achieve a qualitative improvement. Moreover, in the land of Israel and the United States with the help of India is also developing long-range reconnaissance and air defense systems. In addition, India’s missile capability will also be improving steadily, it has been committed to the development of ballistic and cruise missile technologies, to provide force projection capability.
article said that at the same time, India is also committed to improving and long-range missile range and accuracy, so that it can be a potential target to attack China. Moreover, its space program has some (including the two polar-orbiting and Geostationary Satellite Launch Vehicle rocket transport) the importance of technology to the missile project.
But the article pointed out that in the development of missile and nuclear weapons, Pakistan is not lost on India – The missile has a range of 2,000 kilometers, can actually cover most of the territory of India. The article said that unlike India, Pakistan did not develop nuclear-powered submarine missile launch from or as a part of its nuclear forces in the plan. The reason is the high cost of nuclear submarines and not readily available, and Pakistan’s strategic objectives and India are not the same.
In addition, the article also pointed out that Pakistan’s first land-based system attacks the weaknesses, so it should choose to use their own purchased from France or Germany, installed air-independent propulsion system of conventional submarines, and select for these submarines equipped with nuclear-tipped missiles.
article went on to say, imitation, or a passive response to India’s military build-up is stupid. This is because India’s land area, population, resources, industry, technology and economy, with China and its other powers to compete to provide the foundation. And Pakistan should be clear on the basis of national priorities, to develop its power potential corresponding domestic, foreign and defense policy. However, this does not mean that Pakistan’s security guards should be reduced to the extent of external forces to the invasion.
article said, it is important that Pakistan should be sought between national development and defense resource balance, a more integrated approach to ensure national security, always keeping in mind the direct threat came from within the country. Moreover, the article said, only enough access to advanced weapons systems to protect the country against foreign invasion. In this regard, the military expansion of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia is a typical example. In addition, the article also said that Pakistan should follow the example of France and Switzerland, to seek independence, not to powerful neighbors to compromise. (Compiled: Spring)
