Pakistan on Tuesday test-fired another cruise missile Hatf-VII (Babur) having a range of 700 kms, the third successful test in a week, Media reports.
“It’s a multi tube, indigenously developed cruise missile Hatf-VII having a range of 700 kms,” ISPR said in a statement.
“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,” ISPR says.
The army said: “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 test will consolidate Pakistan’s strategic deterrence capability, and further strengthen national security.
