    Pakistan successfully test fired an enhanced range version of indigenously developed Babur Cruise Missile. The weapon system incorporates advanced aerodynamics and avionics that can strike targets both at land and sea with high accuracy at a range of 700 KMs.





    Babur is low flying, terrain hugging missile which also carries certain stealth features.

    Chairman JCSC General Zubair Mahmood Hayat and Services Chiefs congratulated team of scientists, engineers and organisation while President Mamnoon and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi also conveyed their felicitations to team involved, the ISPR statement added.

    Last month, the South Asian country conducted another successful test of SLCM Babur. The missile was fired from an underwater dynamic platform, which successfully engaged its target with precise accuracy, meeting all the flight parameters.


    “The missile provides Pakistan credible Second-Strike Capability, augmenting the existing deterrence regime,” the ISPR said in its statement on March 29.

    Earlier Pakistan conducted another successful test fire of indigenously developed Submarine Launched Cruise Missile Babur, having a range of 450 kms, Inter Services Public Relations said.

    SLCM Babur is capable of delivering various types of payloads and incorporates state of the art technologies including underwater controlled propulsion, advanced guidance and navigation features.

    The missile provides Pakistan Credible Second Strike Capability, augmenting the existing deterrence regime. Development of this capability also reflects Pakistan’s response to provocative nuclear strategies and posture being pursued in the neighborhood through induction of nuclear submarines and ship-borne nuclear missiles; leading to nuclearization of Indian Ocean Region.

    Pakistan eyes this landmark development as a step towards reinforcing the policy of Credible Minimum Deterrence through indigenization and self-reliance.

    The test was witnessed by DG Strategic Plans Division (SPD), Chairman NESCOM, Commander Naval Strategic Force Command (NSFC), senior officials, scientists and engineers from Strategic Scientific Organizations.

    The Chairman JCSC and Services Chiefs have congratulated the scientists, engineers and NSFC personnel for successful achievement of this highly significant milestone.

    The President and Prime Minister of Pakistan have also conveyed their facilitations to the scientists, engineers and NSFC personnel involved in the effort.
