    BBC News - Chinese media mock India's 'dwarf' missile

    Some of Chinese response.

    Mocked the missile programme by saying that the Agni-V showed "the backwardness of Indian missiles" and was "merely one of the concrete displays of its social and economic development as a whole lagging behind China".

    Mr Yao said it was just "an improvement on the range" that in no way will change the "current military strength contrast between the two countries"

    Without an adequate tank corps and a heavy-duty land force with adequate heavy weapons, it can hardly become a so-called 'China killer' by relying solely on nuclear weapons," he said.

    Similar views were echoed by Gao Zugui of the Institute of International Strategic Studies, who said: "Despite giving a little support, it was right in saying that if it really wants to become a great nation, each of its families should have a toilet first."

    Some of the comments are really funny and outrageous!

    It is incredible that people in China now start to have an opinion, do we see democracy in China?
    As it has been mentioned before (yawn) that to have a missile with long range helps as a Deterrent.
    Its not that we want to go to war, Not today and hopefully not tomorrow. but surely we want to ensure that the possession of the missile does make up the mind of countries to think "Not today and hopefully not tomorrow"
    China has a lot of skeletons in its closets,

    Maybe the comment from the Chinese spokesman is suggestive that we buy Made in China toilets for our population :)
    So I assume china wants to improve business ties in field of sanitation :) the view was not critical but constructive and towards a business opportunity for India.. and to answer it,, We have a good sanitation industry, at present we do not need to import them but thanks for your suggestion !!

    If blind patirotism and over-optimism doesn't come in someone's way, then that 'someone' like myself would agree. Only for now.
    They say we overestimate our strength. After 7-10 years they will be the ones who would be actually UNDER-estimating our strength, but for now ( let's be practical ) they're right.

    Agni-V 's a dwarf, True. Even T-34 was considered by the Nazis as 'dwarfs' against their Panzers... we all know what was the outcome.......

    Absolutely Right,
    Besides Chinese have never reacted to any of India's Missile Test before,
    we do at least 12 Tests every year.

    All this attention from China is Proof enough that they are:

    Intimidated, VERY Intimidated

    these reactions point in only one direction-

    that they r really worried about our achievement. how so ever hard they try to ridicule us about lack of toilets, it will not take away the fact that whole of china is now under attack range of India.

    however there is lot of work to be done. we need betetr mobile launchers. our bridges have to be strong and Govt has to really look after infrastructure. portable strategic missile need good infrastructure. wee need good roads and bridges to make it effective.

    We have out railways to launch the Missile,
    much more mobile that roads and faster as well.
    50 tonnes means nothing for a railways wagon, they carry upto 250 tonnes


    AGNI V is especially tailored for road mobility. it is high time we use roads as strategic assets and na mere tool for transportation.

    Let me first come to details of it
    T-34 was never considered as a Dwarf by German army but they were pretty amazed how fast the tank could move, and besides the suspension was so excellent that this tank could fire on the move, earlier the tanks would move but they would stop so that they can fire accurately. Usually the tank gunners kept the sights at 400 mtrs because usually that was the range at which the mass tank battles would take place, if its an ambush, the Tigers could pick out the T-34 at distance.

    T-34 like the AK-47 was built with lot of tolerence, and as you might know the history, more T-34 were destroyed by Tigers and Panthers than T-34 destroyed the opposing tanks.
    The T-34 was medium weight had wide tracks and also a reliable engine, where as the Tiger tank had a big engine but the transmission was not strong enough for the tank further there was problem with fuel lines. So most of the Tiger tanks and panthers and Ferdinands were abandoned by their crew because of the problems than being destroyed by enemy fire,
    At 2000 metres tank vs tank Tiger/Ferdinand and Panthers could pick out individual tanks and destroy them but when the range became lower than 400 metres because then the T-34 gun had enough power at lower ranges to penetrate the tiger armour.
    So it was the mass waves of T-34 that overwhelmed the German panzer korps. not otherwise.
    Where as the 88 mm on the tiger and Ferdinand and 75 mm on Panther could destroy any tank in the field at ranges of 2 kms.
    You can check these details..
    Also it was a person called Christie who had made that excellent suspension design that was used on T-34 his ideas were rubbished by the americans !!

    They did not mind the other missiles as the range was limited, but then with Agni V the missile can target most of the Chinese east coast (which is their development belt) also the range can also target their Capital which till sometime was safe from Indian military threat.

    Further on a funnier note, Chinese should not make jokes about Dwarf, technically size does not always matter, and if it does, How can china explain the population ?? Small but eager to get into action.. thank god the Chinese govt came with one couple one child policy else every 3rd child would be Chinese !!

    This is reckless and twaddle comments from china. What the missile has to do with toilet matter?? They have to see their rural area development first than comment on INDIA.

    Even in the electronic media during debate, one of the Chinese spokesperson from hongkong says those Indian missiles are potentially dangerous. Then what about their missile. Are they peaceful?

    I seriously believe china is in actuality feeling aggravate due to Agni-V missile test.

    Stupid sinos**kers..aaahaa!!!

    I thought only sons of CPC wannabe candidates for mayor posts are trolls but now its
    clear their entire nation and government (lol) is a troll. Its only a matter of time before we make
    them see the light. And we all know what happens when trolls are exposed to light, they turn
    into rock. And then even a bang on their head would break them into pieces.

    china too would soon be broken into pieces and trashed. all their provinces would be torn
    apart and thrown to all small countries for to annex and bully their shorty Han-race that they are,

    Mr. Yao (lol) doesn't know his days are being counted.


    We have to understand that these bold and somewhat contradictory statement's made by various Chinese think tank's and CCP mouth pieces are solely aimed at appeasing the common people of PRC and give the impression to them that China under the communists is still the unchallenged superpower of Asia and also the world and that there was no need for protests and taking the streets calling for pro democracy reform's which is increasingly becoming an impending and unavoidable phenomenon!Otherwise how could one expect the Chinese new's papers especially the Xinhua to give misleading and completely wrong facts bout the Agni's tech,capabilities and mobility!!? The Chinese know very well what the Agni stand's for but they refuse to acknowledge it in front of their people since it could create more problem's for the establishment and after Xinjiang and TRA another problem within MLC is the last thing that the Chinese would like to see.:laugh:
