    India should destroy all liquid fuelled missile like prithivi i read it the plan is already in execution for low range prithive. Introduce 300 k.m or 350 k.m prahaar and then destroy totally. Prithivi is very very outdated.

    Is Prahaar nuclear capable? I do not think a 200kg warhead can be nuclear and all other websites indicate it can carry only conventional warheads.
