    Sir jee than what is the issue as we have 'platform' available which can be used to launch the 'assets' ...... and that asset is 'allegedly capable to be fired from that sea based platform' (as per Dr. Samar Mubark Interview)......
    but that asset is still under development.

    Or we are interpreting the situation wrongly , like that asset can be used from surface fleet but not from the subsurface fleet as of now ........

    Yes, thats the current status.
    But if you take a look from the 'secrecy' angle, we might not get to hear about it for a long time. Reason being, Pakistan is not bound to notify anyone of its cruise missile tests. Besides the test range can be kept low on-purpose to validate the flight parameters (although full-range tests might be still necessary), so it can be kept undercover. Case in point:
    1,500km Babur II under Development, also SL Babur progress. | Page 10

    No, the surface fleet is simply too vulnerable to host anything like that.

    Azerbaijan buys medium-range missiles
    Mon 11 August 2014 05:46 GMT

    The range of fire medium-range missiles is about 3000 km.

    Azerbaijan has gained the medium range ballistic missiles EXTRA of Israeli production (130 km) and long-range missiles (2,000 km) made in Pakistan.

    Oxu.Az reports citing Haqqin.Az that the information was provided by hurriyet.com.tr.

    It has to be noted that in order not to disturb the balance of power, Russia does not sell long-range ballistic missiles to Armenia and Azerbaijan. At the same time, Russia has installed operational-tactical missile complexes "Iskander" with nuclear warheads on a military base in Armenia near the Turkish border.

    The ballistic missiles with a range 1000-5500 km can be fitted with a nuclear warhead.

    The missiles of Israel Military Industries (IMI) have the caliber of 306 mm, a length of 3.97 m, a launch weight of 450 kg and a 125 kg weight of warhead.

    Pakistani missile "Shaheen-1" is capable of hitting targets at a distance of 750 km, "Hatf-4" is an improved version of the "Shaheen-1" missile with a longer range. The exact range of "Shaheen-1A" advanced missile called the "Hatf-4" is not officialy reported, although the range of fire medium-range missiles is about 3000 km.

    link related to this article : News.Az - Azerbaijan buys medium-range missiles

    but this article quote: Haqqin.az as source which further quote the article of www. hurriyet. com (Turkish online tabloid )

    Therefore, I doubt that Pakistan has given any access / sold technology or complete missile to any nation .....

    I don't think thats really necessary for testing subsonic cruise missiles. Reason being availability of vast area with lesser air traffic in form of Baluchistan and relatively safe flight (low altitude + escorting jets). It has been done before, surely can be done again.
    But of course the foreign intelligence always picks scent of these sort of activities.
