    RAWALPINDI: Pakistan on Monday conducted a successful flight test of the indigenously developed Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) “Ra’ad”, said an Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) press release.

    The Ra’ad missile, with a range of 350 km, enables 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; can deliver nuclear and conventional warheads with pin point accuracy.

    Director General Strategic Plans Division, Lieutenant General Zubair Mahmood Hayat, while congratulating the scientists and engineers on achieving yet another milestone of historic significance, termed it a major step towards strengthening Pakistan’s full spectrum credible minimum deterrence capability. Pakistan’s strategic pursuits are aimed at achieving strategic stability in the region, he said.

    He appreciated the technical prowess, dedication and commitment of scientists who contributed whole heartedly to make this launch a success.

    He showed his full confidence over operational preparedness of strategic forces including employment and deployment concepts, refinement and training of all ranks in operational and technical domains.

    The successful launch has been commended by President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who have congratulated the scientists and engineers on their outstanding achievement.

    Point being there is always a pathetic attempt from the neighbour to follow up on any missile test done in india.

    We always have advance notices in media about any weapons test, at least 3 months advance notice. Where as neighbour's tests never seems to be announced in advance and almost all the time happen within a week after an indian test launch.

    Talk about copycat approach.. Pakis will now have a full military parade with Chinese Premier as the chief guest :lol:

    After 7 year gap, Pakistan Day to see military parade in full glory - Pakistan - DAWN.COM

    ISLAMABAD: A joint military parade of Pakistan's armed forces will take place on Pakistan Day, sources said on Monday, after a gap of seven years.

    "The decision has been made to hold a joint military services parade on March 23," a top military source told Dawn on the condition of anonymity.

    The parade will be organised by joint staff headquarters in Rawalpindi, which oversees the three armed forces of Pakistan.The venue for the parade is yet to be finalised, with the two vast compounds shortlisted as potential sites.

    Furthermore, a diplomatic source told Dawn that the Chinese President Xi Jinping is expected to attend the Pakistan Day parade as chief guest.

    Both China and Pakistan are working out details of the Chinese president's visit through diplomatic channels.

    Chinese authorities have been assured about maximum security during Jinping's upcoming visit.

    .

    Launching such Long range Missiles from Aircraft is something better. But Accuracy is the only Question.?

    When India Fires the Brahmos from it's su 30 that's the Middle finger to Bakistan
    @Neo and May I know which PAF Aircraft Launched the Ra'ad. and Suitable PAF Fighters who can launch the Ra'ad

    Sir, you surely agree that every time India tests a missile, Pakistan follows it with its own missile test, or do you not?

    Even if this is imagination, it is based on observation of facts over a long period in the past.

    so far I believe the Mirage only can launch the Raad and the JF 17 blk 2 designed to carry the CM-400AKG.

    after Phasing out the Mirage from the PAF Fleet. may be the Future JF 17 can launch the Ra'ad

    Yes, the Indians on this thread have observed right. It is about H&D for our Paki friends. I remember that after Mangalyaan reached Mars, the Pakis launched something. A Paki news anchor was crowing about it as "retaliation" for Mangalyaan. Of course, only the Paki Urdu TV media can compare a 200 million km vehicle with a 300 km vehicle. But what to do saar, H&D is most important for Pakis.

    @Redhawk you might also be interested in this peculiar attitude of Bakis :) For every Indian missile test there's a reply from across the border the very next day possibly to fool their people into thinking that they are not sitting ducks ;P
