Pakistan conducted another successful test of SLCM BABUR cruise missile having a range of 450 KMs
Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) announced that Pakistan have conducted another successful test of an indigenously-developed submarine-launched cruise missile (SLCM) ‘Babur’ having a range of 450km
The missile was fired from an underwater dynamic platform, which successfully engaged its target with precise accuracy, meeting all the flight parameters, the statement read.
SLCM Babur is capable of delivering various types of payloads and incorporates state-of-the-art technologies, including underwater controlled propulsion, advanced guidance and navigation features.
“The missile provides Pakistan credible Second-Strike Capability, augmenting the existing deterrence regime,” the ISPR said in its statement.
“Development of this capability also reflects Pakistan’s response to provocative nuclear strategies and posture being pursued in the neighborhood through induction of nuclear submarines and ship-borne nuclear missiles, leading to nuclearisation of Indian Ocean region,” it said further.
