Many may say that these are not what we are looking for as people tend to bigger missiles.But truth is you can not go for the big ones if you can not handles the smaller ones.

And more importantly we need the overhaul plant as we tend to keep our missiles active for a longer period of time. At the end all we can say for sure that Bangladesh army in right track for the future missile programs.
