Will be back soon!

News: Pakistan tests it long-range missile, Shaheen II aka Hatf VI. Following details are from Dawn:
"Sources said Shaheen-II "is described as two-stage, solid fuel 2000-2500 kilometre range missile" capable of carrying 1,000kg payload. Pakistan flight-tested solid-fuelled Abdali (Hatf-2) and Ghaznavi (Hatf-3) missiles, as well as liquid-fuelled Ghauri (Hatf-5) missile in May 2002. The Shaheen-I (Hatf-4) solid-fuelled missile was flown in October 2002 and the Abdali missile again in March 2003. In October 2003, Pakistan launched another series of tests in which it flight-tested the Ghaznavi and Shaheen-I missiles again."

The News mentioned it in the following manner:
"Pakistan on Tuesday successfully test-fired long-range surface-to-surface two-stage ballistic missile Hatf-VI (Shaheen-II), bringing entire India within its striking range....Indigenously-developed Shaheen-II missile can carry all types of warheads up to 2,500 kilometres. The range of the missile can be enhanced, and some more tests of this highly-sophisticated missile will be carried out in the future."

Sorry for the delay, but I am doing some research before publishing my next post. Please stay. Comments on the past posts will be appreciated.
