NIAS Report , NIAS, Number 81-87663-70-7, Bangalore (2006)



Though there is some material on the Pakistan missile programme in the public domain, it is still a very difficult task to separate out the wheat from the chaff and make a realistic assessment of the programme?s true capabilities. Information in the public domain is often noisy, garbled and distorted. There are also vested interests and leaks that further muddy already muddy waters. This study on the Pakistan missile programme attempts to provide an independent assessment of Pakistani missile capabilities through a careful scrutiny and analysis of publicly available data. We believe that such an independent assessment will contribute towards a better understanding of the capabilities of one of India?s most important neighbours.
