    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s military says it has successfully test-fired a cruise missile capable of carrying ”strategic and conventional” war heads.

    An army statement says the Hatf-VII or Babur missile, which has a range of 360 miles (600 kilometers), was test-fired from an undisclosed location Thursday. The statement did not specifically say if the missile could carry nuclear warheads.

    Senior army officials and scientists attended the testing.

    Pakistan and its nuclear-armed rival neighboring India routinely test different versions of their missiles. The two countries have fought three wars since they gained independence from Britain in 1947. – AP

    Pakistan test fires nuclear-capable Babur cruise missile

    Pakistan test fired nuclear-capable Babur (Hatf-7) cruise missile with a range of 600 km that can hit targets in India.

    The test of the indigenous-developed missile was “part of a process of validating the system,” said a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations. The statement did not mention where the test was conducted.

    The successful test of Hatf-7 or Babur cruise missile was witnessed by Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Chairman Gen Khalid Shamim Wynne, who said the launch would “go a long way in consolidating Pakistan’s strategic deterrence capability and further strengthening national security.”

    “Pakistan’s resolve and commitment to continue its strategic program will remain paramount,” he said.

    The test was “warmly appreciated by the President and Prime Minister,” who congratulated the scientists and engineers on their success, the statement said.

    The Director General of the Strategic Plans Division, Lt Gen (Retd) Khalid Ahmed Kidwai, Army Strategic Force Command chief Lt Gen Jamil Haider, senior officers from the military and strategic organizations, scientists and engineers also witnessed the test.

    The Babur can carry strategic or conventional warheads and has stealth capabilities, the statement said.

    It is a “low flying, terrain-hugging missile with high maneuverability, pin-point accuracy and radar avoidance features.”

    The missile also incorporates modern cruise missile technology of terrain contour matching (TERCOM) and digital scene matching and area co-relation (DSMAC), the statement said.

    Preparing to nerd India by increasing its arsenal and checking it delivery platform... Soon, they'll take tough stance against India with all required support from China... That days is not too far!!

    No pointing in wasting time with resuming talks until Pakistan Army controls their bureaucrats and politic leaders.. They can't go against the powerful Army generals or else have to risk their lives.. Even Nawaz sheriff was not sure about his security and Gen.Musharraf kept himself exile from the country...

    When the Chinese gave them the one with 600 km range to play with. :) Pun intended, not sure whats up here. But I see there's no looking back for Pakistan on the path it is now. Its like a drug addict athlete who has lesser real capacity but keeps taking in to show itself more powerful by each day.
