    I don't think so. First two tests were conducted above land.

    Actually; Sri might have a point, "File" is written on the Picture. You dont write that on a current picture.It might be an American Tomahawk which is similar looking to babur;**** Journalist for the want of a new picture must have kept it, I am sure knowing the South Asian Defence Journalist Reputation; it is no suprise. But you never know; This is just a possbility;

    You have a valid point there. Guess we'll have to wait till more info is released.
    If its a naval version I expect to read a lot in the media.

    CNN, BBC and Al Jazeera showed a red colour CM being launched from land, what looked like a test launcher.

    700Km is a whopping double the range of brahmos.

    The range is supposedly 1000KM but decreased to 750KM due to reporting purposes.

    :disagree:

    Well Adux it looks like i was right at reading the picture. The picture definitely showed an underwater launch, but thanks to “Rana” now we know its a tomahawk launched from N submarine USS La Jolla. ;)

    Its hard to tell the difference as even the color of both missiles is almost the same. :lol:

    Pakistan is sometime away from being able to develop a Submarine launched CM. Before the system is operationalized, all of the focus would be on the land based version.

    I would really like for them to concentrate on submarine launch cause india does now have a second strike capability that we dont. If we some how accomplish this we can also have second strike capability
