 U.S. media lists the Pakistani weapons that India should fear.

Pakistani Air Force-equipped Dragon Fighter

[Global Network Military Report of March 4] Pakistans military overall equipment strength is inferior to India, but Pakistan also has weapons that make India feel afraid. The expenditure of March 4 of the US National Interest magazine is very terrible to launch a war against Pakistan in any case, knowing that it may trigger a nuclear war. The magazine identifies several types of weapons that Pakistan fears and can pose a threat to India in extreme circumstances.

JF-17Thunder fighter

National Interest expenditure, JF-17 is a single-engine multi-target fighter, developed jointly by Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group of China and Pakistani Aviation Comprehensive Enterprise. The Pakistani military may be equipped with 200 JF-17 fighters, which perform much better than the existing Phantom-3, Phantom-5 and F-7 fighters in Pakistan.

The appearance of JF-17 is very similar to that of Pakistani Air Force active fighters, especially Phantom-5 and U.S. F-16 fighters. It should be said that this is not accidental. This shows that China has carefully studied both models. Many components of the JF-17 have the characteristics of modern fighters. These include flight electronic remote control system, pulse Doppler radar station for target detection and air combat, air refueling system, laser indicator for ground targets, modern electronic warfare complex, human mechanics cockpit of side glass refractive index, and multi-color digital dashboard. In the near future, it is also planned to install new engines, new optical and electronic helmet with target indication and more advanced built-in electronic systems.

The JF-17 fighter has five weapon suspension points and can carry 3.6 tons of fuel, weapons or ammunition. Air combat weapons are provided by China, including all kinds of short-range and long-range guided missiles that hit air targets. Little is known about air-to-ground weapons outside, but from all aspects, it will be able to equip a variety of uncontrolled bombs, laser-guided bombs, high-precision missiles and anti-ship missiles.

Harriet series submarines

The Indian Navy is superior to Pakistan in almost every respect, with much more troops, ships and aircraft. Moreover, India is much better equipped than Pakistan. The most effective equipment of the Pakistani Navy is three Harriet diesel-electric attack submarines. These three submarines could be effective against the Indian Navy if the latter tried to besiege Karachi and other ports. The Harriet series submarines are equipped with independent air power systems, which are difficult to find because of their long underwater voyages. The submarine has a good underwater speed of more than 20 knots and is equipped with quite powerful weapons, including torpedoes and anti-ship missiles that can hit targets within 50 kilometers.

Pakistans Nuclear Weapons

Pakistan decided to develop a nuclear bomb after the war with India in 1971. In 1974, after Indias nuclear test, the development plan was formally determined. In 1998, Islamabad shocked the world and detonated several nuclear devices with power ranging from 1,000 tons to 36,000 tons. At present, the number of Pakistans nuclear weapons is unknown, estimated to be about 90-110. Pakistans nuclear weapons can reach targets by air bombs and ballistic missiles.

Pakistan is equipped with F-16 fighters capable of delivering tactical nuclear weapons and can reach central India (if it can cross Indian air defense systems). In addition, Pakistan has several short-range tactical ballistic missiles. Pakistans Gaoli-2 missile, which can hit further targets, was launched in the 1990s at a distance of about 2,000 kilometers, but the number is unknown. The missile is highly mobile and can be transported by road. In theory, the missile could hit 80% of Indias territory. Pakistans newer medium-range ballistic missile is the Shahin-2 missile, which uses solid fuel and has a range of 2,000 kilometers.


Since 2008, Islamabad has begun to use its own small UAVs for tactical reconnaissance missions, namely SHAHPAR and UKAB.

The UAV UKAB has a flight distance of 150 kilometers and a duration of 6 hours. The SHAHPAR is slightly heavier and faster, 15% larger than the UKAB, with a maximum speed of 150 kilometers per hour and a duration of 7 hours. The data transmission channel equipped on the aircraft can transmit video signals in real time within 250 kilometers. SHAHPAR can take off, fly and land by itself through GPS.

India should be afraid of SHAHPAR and UKAB, which can effectively complement small armed groups, carry out destructive activities at border posts or in large cities. SHAHPAR has a payload of nearly 50 kilograms and can be used to transport goods secretly.
