Title[edit]

Should the title be changed to "Ra'ad cruise missile" ? Hj108 (talk) 14:15, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

I think the current title is ok or probably "Ra'ad (ACLM)". Consider creating a redirect for your suggestion. --lTopGunl (talk) 15:05, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

There is another article Hatf-VIII (Ra'ad) which I think is exactly the same as this one and should be merged with this article. I'm tagging the articles for merger as of now. --lTopGunl (talk) 15:05, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

I support the merger proposal. As there are articles on other Hatf series missile with title in similar syntax as Ra'ad, so I think Hatf-VIII (Ra'ad) should be merged with (and redirected to) Ra'ad. SMS Talk 21:46, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
Actually merging & redirecting Ra'ad to Hatf-VIII (Ra'ad) would be a better idea because that is the serial name of the missile. --lTopGunl (talk) 09:25, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
Either way we need to make it consistent. Take a look at other article titles on Pakistan's missiles
Current Article Title Name Serial Name
Hatf-I Hatf-I Hatf-I
Abdali-I Abdali-I Hatf-II
Ghaznavi (missile) Ghaznavi Hatf-III
Shaheen-I Shaheen-I Hatf IV
Ghauri (missile) Ghauri Hatf V
Ghauri-II Ghauri-II Ghauri-II
Ghauri-III Ghauri-III Ghauri-III
Shaheen-II Shaheen-II Hatf-VI
Babur (cruise missile) Babur Hatf VII

Good observation. How about. "Real name (Serial name)" or "Serial name (Real name)" for all articles? What does WP:MOS say? --lTopGunl (talk) 12:38, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
