We all are aware of the fact that Pakistan has one of the best missile systems in the world. But have you ever heard about the anti-ballistic missile system in Pakistan? If not then Pakistan still has no anti-ballistic system. An anti-ballistic system that is also called as ballistic missile defense system as well is a system for protecting a country from ballistic missile attacks.
ABM is a surface to air missile system to encounter ballistic missiles. Currently, the countries that hold this technology are in the process of getting this technology are the United States of America, Russia, China, Israel, Japan, and India. Japan, India, and France are still in the development phase. Moreover, Pakistan has also initiated the process to develop ABM system. Rumors are also there that Pakistan aims to get the China made 640 or Russian A-35 Anti-Ballistic Missile System.
For Pakistan, it is a big challenge to get this technology because it is also important for the defense of a country. At the same time, it is not so easy to get this system because it will put a heavy burden on the budget. The defense analysts have the pint of view that ABM system will cost Pakistan many times higher than what it has spent on the ballistic missile system so far. It is not confirmed when it will have ABM system. Estimation can be made that the currently may have ABM by the end of 2025.
