Tamil Tiger air wing a nuclear threat?



As reported in LTTE acquires air capability to target Indian nuclear reactors:
The LTTE has acquired the capability from air to target nuclear reactors in South India.
For the first time, the government of Sri Lanka has told Times Now and Indian officials that LTTE's air force is not as toothless as it was thought to be.
In fact, the Indian government has been told that it should not underestimate the nature of the threat posed by the LTTE's rudimentary air force. But the Indian government still believes that it can easily rebuff such a threat.
However, the Indian defense establishment is leaving nothing to chance as the country's top strategic nuclear facilities are concentrated in parts of southern India.
The Czech-made Zlin aircraft that the LTTE uses has a range of over 1,000 kilometres.
