外文标题：Pakistan tests China-made attack helicopter
BEIJING: The first Z-10 attack helicopter provided by China to Pakistan has completed its test mission over Rawalpindi, according to unconfirmed reports.
The development was posted by micro bloggers in the New York based Chinese language website, Douwei News.
The move comes soon after Pakistan launched its Shaheen 3 IRBM ballistic missile last month. Its technology is believed to have been supplied by China because "Pakistan does not have the industrial infrastructure to do it themselves" a military website said.
这一试飞是在巴基斯坦上月发射Shaheen 3 IRBM弹道导弹后不久进行的，技术据信由中国提供，因为巴基斯坦并没有自己动手的工业基础设施，一家军事网站如是说。
"China was the most likely donor and China would do this largely because Pakistani ballistic missiles aimed at India make Indian anti-missile defenses less effective against Chinese ballistic missiles," the US website, Strategy Page, said.
Pakistan is believed to have chosen China's Z-10 after considering another next-generation attack helicopter, Turkey's A-129, as it wants to replace its obsolete AH-1S Cobras purchased from the United States in the 1980s.
There have also been unconfirmed reports that Pakistan had placed an order for Mi-35 heavy assault gunship helicopters from Moscow. The Mi-35 may be along with China's Z-10 in real combat environment, reports said. But they have not been confirmed by any government agency.
The Z-10 helicopter has a firing range of four kilometers which also makes it capable of staying out of the target range of the enemy's ground forces. It is also expected to enhance Pakistan's anti-terrorism capabilities.

The significant blast effect is not the primary killer in a nuclear attack. it is radiation carried by winds and rain that kills its victims over many years that knows no boundaries. It will cross borders for many hundreds of kilometres. The fall out as it is referred to will kill millions of people in the country of origin that fired the missile in the first place. Like shooting your self in the foot.

Young hot heads rarely think of the consequences of their actions.
small nations such as pakistan should know how to run the government without violence, not spending on defence items
