同国の戦術核保有状況については、否定的意見が多い。ソース失念、省略。

が、某

インド軍高官は、パキスタン軍が戦術核を保有していると見積もっている。

以下は、下記資料より引用。

ある現役将官は、"We know that Pakistan will use a tactical nuclear weapon if it finds itself cornered. Our current strategies are being worked out after taking into account this possibility,"と発言。同人は、"We have intelligence inputs and field reports that indicate Pakistan has clandestinely acquired highly sophisticated miniaturised tactical nuclear weapons which could be launched even from field artillery guns or aircraft," と発言。

" Maj Gen (retd) Afsir Karim, a former member of the National Security Advisory Board, "The US has some kind of control over Pakistan's nuclear warheads but not entirely since there is a possibility that Pakistan has kept some of its nukes hidden from the Americans. Also, anything can be pushed in from the Chinese side and launched at the last moment," he says. Gen Karim also adds that

doesn't have TNWs."[1]

Lt Gen D.B. Shekatkar, former additional director-general, military operations, and additional director-general, perspective planning (covering among other things nuclear doctrine and planning), retired from the army on March 31 this year. In addition to the two postings, he has also been a divisional commander in Kashmir, a corps commander in the northeast and commandant of the prestigious

Outlook:

Does

Pakistan

possess a tactical nuclear weapon?

Yes, it does and we should be ready to counter it.


中略

"There is this theory among various nuclear analysts that Pakistan does not possess the technology to miniaturise a nuclear weapon, leave alone having a weapons delivery system...
With due respect, there is vast difference between academic research and ground realities. The series of missiles supplied to Pakistan by China and North Korea are capable of carrying a tactical nuclear weapon. China also has the technology to miniaturise."

中国がロプノール実験場でパキスタン製核爆弾を実験したように、(Baldev Raj Nayar & T.V.Paul,eds, India in the World Order: Searching for Major―Power Status(London: Cambridge University Press, 2003), p.226)中国はパキスタンの戦術核保有を可能ならしめている、とインド軍人は懸念。
