Permalink Closed

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan on Thursday conducted a successful test of the indigenously developed Cruise Missile Hatf-VII (Babur) having a range of 600 kms. (this is an error, it has a range of 700 kms)

The missile tests are part of a process of validating the system. Babur, which can carry strategic and conventional warheads, has stealth capabilities, is a low flying, terrain hugging missile with high maneuverability, pin point accuracy and radar avoidance features.

It also incorporates the modern cruise missile technology of Terrain Contour Matching (TERCOM) and Digital Scene Matching & Area Co-relation (DSMAC).

The test was witnessed by Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, General Khalid Shamim Wynne, Director General Strategic Plans Division, Lieutenant General (retired) Khalid Ahmed Kidwai, Commander Army Strategic Force Command Lieutenant General Jamil Haider, Chairman NESCOM Muhammad Irfan Burney, senior officers from the armed forces and strategic organizations, scientists and engineers.

The Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee reiterated that the test will go a long way in consolidating Pakistans strategic deterrence capability, and further strengthening national security.

Pakistans resolve and commitment to continue its strategic programme will remain paramount, he added.

The successful test has also been warmly appreciated by the President and Prime Minister of Pakistan, who have congratulated the scientists and engineers on their outstanding success.

Flying a plane is no different from riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.
