    Pakistan test-fires Hatf-VII Babur missile

    RAWALPINDI: Pakistan conducted a successful test fire of the multi tube, indigenously developed cruise missile Hatf-VII Babur having a range of 700km, a statement issued by Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.
    Babur cruise missile is a low flying, terrain hugging missile with high maneuverability, pin point accuracy and radar avoidance features.
    It can carry both nuclear and conventional warheads and has stealth capabilities.

    It also incorporates the most modern cruise missile technology of Terrain Contour Matching (TERCOM) and Digital Scene Matching and Area Co-relation (DSMAC), which enhances its precision and effectiveness manifolds.
    The missile was launched from a state of the art multi tube Missile Launch Vehicle (MLV) which significantly enhances the targeting and employment options of Babur Weapon System in both the conventional and nuclear modes.
    The test was witnessed by Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Khalid Shameem Wynne, Director General Strategic Plans Division, Lieutenant General Khalid Ahmed Kidwai (retd.), Chairman National Engineering and Scientific Commission (Nescom), Muhammad Irfan Burney, senior officers from the armed forces and strategic organizations, scientists and engineers.
    The test will consolidate Pakistan’s strategic deterrence capability, and further strengthen national security.
    The successful test was also appreciated by the president and the prime minister, who congratulated the scientists and engineers on their outstanding success.

    It's funny they have not tested the Ghori yet. That should have been the first test after India tested and after the failed NoKo test. NoKo missile is a direct connection to the Ghori. May be they have not got the supplies of it, may be they still have not figured out what went wrong with the NoKo failed rocket.

    well one of the earlier test show it missing its mark. Btw this missile specifications looks same as C 602 missile from china looks like China has copied it and has given it to Pak. Both have gain from uncle's missile, pls that launch vehicle is just cosmatic modified chines launcher with all three tubes being given metal out cover and green Pakistani symbol to show it is made in/for Pak. That is the reason that every time Pakistan test a missile its engineers are not happy when they launch a missile.

    It isn't a precision weapon by far, but it can carry nukes.

    I don't think that is a fair statement considering range/payload. I do question the range of Babur since it is powered by inferior Chinese engines. It is probably only a few hundred km.
