Indian Navy Dismisses Chinese Anti-ship Ballistic Missile Programme as a Threat


Dismissing China's anti-ship missile programme as a threat to Indian warships, Navy chief Admiral Nirmal Verma on Wednesday said it would be a difficult task to even spot the vessels in the vast expanse of high seas. "Targeting ships at high seas is not an easy task or as simple as land warfare," Admiral Verma told reporters here on the sidelines of a seminar on aircraft carriers organised by the National Maritime Foundation here. "There are hundreds and thousands of ships in the sea at any given time. 

It is extremely important to spot the ship before targeting it. There are limitations in terms of maritime reconnaissance and long-range searches," Verma said when asked about the threat posed by Chinese Anti-ship Ballistic Missile Programme. He said it was "a complex problem" to use a conventional missile against a moving target at high seas. Earlier, addressing the seminar, the Navy chief said aircraft carriers were expensive and there were questions on their affordability and survivability due to their large size while at sea..........................ExpressIndia

And they want to fight with China and Pakistan together, what a joke.

True. Pakistan is a joke.

China would never on an international level admit to being friends with Pakistans.

Pakistan is poor, and beggs the americans for change to throw in to Pakistans Beggar bowls.

Do you Think CHina would go to war with one of its largest and fastest going Trading partners over Pakistan?

A country which is used like a Hoe ( Prostitute ) by America and China itself?

Paks a joke, the sooner you inbred Pakis realize this, the better

Politics aside,

i too think anti-ship ballistic missile is nonsense. Reentry speed of such missile is in order of Mach20+ (7km/s). No guidance (friction/heat) or datalink (telemetry blackout) system works at such speed. Simple physics.

PRC/PLA is bluffing.

Do you Think CHina would go to war with one of its largest and fastest going Trading partners over Pakistan?
