    The Pakistan Navy has successfully test-fired land based anti-ship missile as part of a training exercise from the coastal region.

    “The missile successfully followed its pre-planned trajectory till accurate target engagement at sea,” said a statement issued by the country’s naval forces on Saturday.

    Vice Chief of the Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Kaleem Shaukat and senior officers of Pakistan Navy were present on the occasion.

    While addressing the audience, the naval vice-chief highlighted the changing security environment in the India Ocean region and corresponding challenges for Navy.

    He conveyed confidence of Chief of the Naval Staff on the relentless efforts being put in by the officers and men of the naval forces to defend sea frontiers of the country.

    Navy, PAF successfully test-fire long range anti-ship cruise missile

    The Pakistan Navy will continue to support regional peace and security initiatives to meet entire spectrum of challenges in the maritime domain, he added.

    Vice Admiral Shaukat lauded the ‘utmost dedication, unflinching resolve and commendable professional conduct’ displayed by all participants especially the crew of missile unit for making the event a complete success.

    The test was conducted five days after the Navy and the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) jointly conducted long range anti-ship cruise missile firings in North Arabian Sea on Monday.

    The firing was conducted by JF-17 fighter aircraft and Pakistan Navy Ship SAIF – a multi-mission F-22P frigate.

    The most Important part to note here is Pakistan has also test anti ship long range cruise missile that means Harbah Air to surface version has been tested as was previously expected.

    And one more important thing to note is that JF-17 has been integrated with Anti-ship Cruise missile.

    Italian Chief visited Naval Ships in Karachi. There's no Harbah Air to Surface so please stop speculating. And JF-17 has been integrated with anti-ship cruise missile years ago.

    The News clearly says Air to sea JF-17 launched cruise missile. So you tell me which cruise missile is that?
