I don't think Nirbhay will deal with Balakot blockhouse.
I think you have a erroneous understanding of the Balakot strike.
Its not a bunch of tents or tin sheds like the Taliban camps in Afghanistan hit by Tomahawk strikes on regular basis.
On the other hand we read about a bunker in Baluchistan that caught fire.
One Indian analyst said it was due to an Indian strike with three ground launched Brahmos.
So we know the forces know which is the desired weapon for such targets.
We kneed to understand targets and weapons capability rather than just technical specs.
