The politico-military environment is ripe to impose deterrence...
Ababeel seems to be a weapon of choice

It's an official NOTAM but I am not sure I am at liberty to share it since the documents were shared with me in a personal capacity. Not sure why it isn't on the CAA website (or maybe it is, or maybe it will be soon).

@farok84 the NOTAM you posted is correct. I have seen the accompanying maps for it.

@HRK @Arsalan
None of these indicate the area or range as being claimed in some pictures (the one indicating a 2500-3000Km range). This one is not related to the picture being shared as far as i can see.

are we sure it will be a missile test I mean is it possible it could be a test related to some long range UAV as

- the launching point is almost in the middle of the country

- Somani in the south and Tila Jogian in north are only two know missile launching sites .....

- Still no NAVAREA warring is issued which mean what ever would be tested might not have any impact zone in the sea.

- Only issuance of NOTAM might indicates that it is something related to flying object ....

These are just few of my observations or you ca say some of my questions

Launch site could be DG Khan. Which is why I suspected it could be a training launch.

UAV test does not require clearing of airspace to unlimited altitude. It's just an aircraft that just needs flight plan.

We have had past tests with no navarea warnings by PN while notams were issued by CAA.

The dates could might as well pass with no announcements in case of failures/aborts or simply no desire to announce. So I wouldn't hold my breath.

BTW NOTAM is labelled SPD activity (in Arsalans inbox) which is more indication of missiles.

Could they be testing using the TEL in a different area or something?
AWACS/EW system?

I am unaware of any 3000km claim however the 2200/2300km one stands correct and is the more accurate one. Also regarding Fateh, as far as i know that is its regular movement, it mostly loops near Karachi along with Dolphin.
