    Navy successfully test fires surface-to-air missile

    KARACHI: Pakistan Navy on Monday successfully test fired surface-to-air missile in the Sonmiani area, near Karachi.

    According to the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), Naval Chief Admiral Noman Bashir observed the missile experiment. The missile successfully hit its target in the air.

    The ISPR revealed that the new missile will further strengthen the defence of Pakistan in the sea.

    The Naval chief congratulated Navy officials and soldiers and vowed to defend the country in all circumstances.

    Earlier last week, the Army Strategic Force command’s strategic missile group successfully test fired Ghauri Hatf V, a medium-range ballistic missile capable of carrying nuclear and conventional warheads.

He added that the induction of these state of the art weapons/equipment will augment PN ground based air defence capabilities against Hi-Tech aircraft and incoming missiles.
