Pakistan Special Weapons Facilities
Pakistan has two parallel and competing special weapons programs. The initial program, which began in the late 1970s, was focused on uranium enrichment centered at
Kahuta. More recently this program has enlarged its portfolio to include the Ghauri [Nodong] missile delivery system, which is flight tested at the nearby Tilla Jogian [Malute] test site. Apparently initiated in the mid-1980s following problems with the uranium program, the plutonium program is centered around the unsafeguarded nuclear reactor at
Khushab, and has probably focused on the development of a nuclear warhead for the M-11 missiles stored at the nearby
Sargodha Central Ammunition Depot . Pakistan's nuclear weapons tests were conducted at two locations in the Chagai Hills.
