Hehe, so we have fully indigenous 3000km,2 stage capability have we.But they only thing Paks have tried to fire upwards into orbit is their pilots from crumbling Chinese Mig 19 copies. A 3000km range but no orbiting mission-muhahaha! I guess the Pakistani public is kept from schooling for a reason.

A Pu bomb given by China in April 1998 using recently reprocessed Pu would appear as 1998 vintage, conversely a Pakistani or North Korean bomb made 10 yrs earlier would appear as 'old Pu' bomb even though detonated in 1998.
