We all know that it has been more than 3 years we haven't heard much regarding this missile. No tests, no open info. It is believed that the Ababeel is still in developmental and testing stage and hasn't gone into production yet. Some time back I read somewhere (probably on the other forum) that some of the scientists/and a brigadier of Pakistan Army got caught on providing intel to Americans regarding this particular missile and subsequently they got the maximum punishment of treason. This may be completely untrue as well. Anyways crux of the matter is, why we haven't tested Ababeel for the second time, normally our Shaheen and before that Ghauri series were tested regularly. There might hv been secret tests which didn't meant the expected parameters but than again very little information regarding this very sophisticated missile.

If anyone having some updated or correct information regarding this missile, please share.

Ababeel Missile basic specs:
Operational Range : 2200 km (max.)
Warheads : Confidential (though it is believed that it can carry up to 4 warheads)

Shaheen-3 and Ababeel are closely related and so is Shaheen-1A version B (A designation invented by me ?).

Shaheen-1A is the test platform for development of both the above missiles.

Even if Ababeel or Shaheen-3 are not launched and a Shaheen-1A is launched, it means something for those two is being tested.

It may be derived from Shaheen series as far as it's solid fuel structure is concerned but what is more important of this missile is the MIRV bus performance. How accurately the war heads are delivered at different locations is what will make this misisle deadly thus making enemy BMD shield ineffective. This can be guage only by thorough testing.

Currently none.
SSBN is not our requirement.
Pakistani second strike capability is land based and is set to remain as such.
Agosta Khalid class with Babur-III are currently more than enough.
Reason is simple. Pakistan India are not USA-USSR.
While USA and USSR had a commutative nuclear weapons of 25 gigatons yield, and could scorch each other completely.
Neither India nor Pakistan can scorch the other to charcoal.
Both countries may have a commutative nuclear weapons yield of less than 100 megatons.
Whoever attacks first, the other will have enough landmass remaining un radiated , to launch a retaliatory strike from there.
