Zarvan... what kind of observation is that? Do you think these boys tests missile like kids used to hold a firework competition? Not testing a missile raising serious questions?? Really?
Because if you don't know or not. The three officers who were given death and life imprisonment. The rumors started taking rounds that they managed to give information of our Missiles and specially if Ababeel to CIA. Therefore many who study defence matters think Ababeel has been compromised.

Rumors are rumors. Ababeel may be referred as a tech demonstrator as of yet. The rest can be rumored too. Everything is compromised, if we go by those rumors. Men involved in these projects, do know how & when to do that.

NATIONAL COMMAND AUTHORITY ORDERS FLIGHT TEST OF MEDIUM RANGE BALLISTIC MISSILE

Prime Minister of Pakistan and Chairman of the NCA, ordered operational test of SHAHEEN 1A MRBM, as advised by the Strategic Plans Division.

The order was successfully carried out by the Pakistan Army Strategic Forces Command, who launched Strategic Weapon Hatf-IV 'SHAHEEN-1A' MRBM from test location carrying inert warhead.

The test flight was aimed at re-validating various design and technical parameters of the weapons system including an advanced navigation system. All test parameters were met, Alhumdulillah.

The Hatf-VI Shaheen-1A is an improved version of the Shaheen-1 missile, indigenously made by NDC/NESCOM Pakistan, capable of carrying conventional or strategic warheads up to a range of 900-1000 kilometres. The improvements over the Shaheen-1 include extremely high accuracy, a better, advanced engine and an unusually high speed during terminal phase, even for ballistic missiles, allegedly between Mach 16-25, which makes shooting the missile down with Anti-Ballistic Missile systems almost impossible.

The missile's warheads have also been designed with a PSAC (Post-Separation Altitude Correction) system. This is a unique feature which consists of small thrusters that can adjust the warhead trajectory for greater accuracy and evading anti-ballistic missile defence systems.

In addition, the Shaheen-1A primarily contains sophisticated automated fuelling and advanced stealth technology features that were not present in previous ballistic missiles, in order to avoid detections from radars.

Did a quick search on Youtube and worked out that in the last 2 years, whole Shaheen series has been retested/revalidated Alhamdolillah.
In 2019 Shaheen-1 (650km) & Shaheen-2 (1500km) and now in 2020-21 Shaheen-3 (2750km) & Shaheen-1A (900km). Unless the 2019 ones need to be done again for new navigation system purposes, by Gods grace the whole Shaheen series has been retested and revalidated.
We also keep testing Ghaznavi and Abdali as well as Nasr, which probably means only perhaps some variants from Ghauri missile series may be remaining and Ababeel.
