    Pakistan conducted a successful flight test of the indigenously developed Air Launched Cruise Missile Hatf-VIII (Raad) Thursday, ARY News reported.

    According to ISPR statement, Ra’ad Missile has the range of over 350 km that can enable Pakistan to achieve strategic standoff capability on land and at Sea.

    ‘Cruise Technology’ is extremely complex and has been developed by only a few countries in the world. The state of the art Ra’ad Cruise Missile with Stealth Capabilities is a low altitude, terrain hugging missile with high maneuverability, and can deliver nuclear and conventional warheads with pin point accuracy.

    A major additional feature of today’s test was the effective employment of the National Command Authority’s fully automated Strategic Command and Control Support System (SCCSS).

    The system has the added capability of real time remote monitoring of missile flight path.

    President, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, and Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee have congratulated the scientists and engineers over successful launch of the missile.

    RAAD is a interesting Missile system..

    Its development is from Dud or destroyed US Tomahawks in Astan..

    RAAD is a flexible system can be launched from Air, land and may be from sea..





    Bigger Picture..

    So what's the sum total of the range of all the missiles tested so far? Wonder why they have not fired the ghori. May be they are short on off the shelf missiles they have bought from China.

    Hurrah!!! We are so backward in missile tech and scared of this Ra'ad.

    Brahmos air launched version rings a bell? Nirbhay will have an air launched version.

    When you actually test the air launched brahmos or nirbhay then claim it otherwise not.

    Sure. With 1000 kms range, Nirbhay will be able to target anything in Pak without getting into Pak. I mean even Brahmos will. Yeah they will be inducted faster than your already tested Ra'ad once tested. Entire infrastructure is ready.

    The same DRDO delivered the A5 which has spurred the current spate of missile tests in Pak.

    The missile is missing an 'n' in a strategic location.
