Pakistan tests Hatf-VII Babar Cruise Missile

Early Morning today, Pakistan has successfully test fired its radar evading nuclear ready Hatf-VII Babar Cruise Missile ranging upto 700 KM (430 miles). It can carry conventional weapons as well as nuclear ones.

Babar was previously tested in 2005. General Ehsan ul Haq alongwith scientists and senior army personnels were available the site of test fire.

“The test is part of Pakistan’s ongoing efforts at consolidating its strategic capability and strengthening national security,” the ISPR (Inter Services Public Relations) directorate said in a statement.

“Babur was tested successfully with new technical parameters and enhanced edge,” said Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad, the top army spokesman.

Neither Arshad nor the military statement specified site of the missile launch.

President General Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz congratulated the scientists and engineers for “this very important success” of the test, the military statement said.

India and Pakistan have an agreement under which each country informs that other ahead of its missile tests.

But Pakistan did not inform India of the test Thursday because the accord does not include providing prior information on cruise missile tests, a military official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment to media.

In February, Pakistan successfully test-fired a new version of its long-range nuclear-capable missile, Hatf VI (Shaheen II), which has a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,245 miles).

    Dear Sheepoo Those women and men of the Madrasah are dealt with a strong hand. In future there would be no such Madrasah in Pakistan. This is not Islam what these Madrasahs were teaching

    mr sheep!!! although we have good relations with india these days but it has been realized by present and past leaders of pakistan that india is the worst enemy of pakistan and would not let give away any chance of destroying we are making missiles and nukes to protect ourselves.
    remember when india tested its nukes in 1998 (i dun remember date or year exactly) she was howling like we’ll doi this to pakistan and that to pakistan.but when pakistan tested its nukes….india was quite like ….what can i say….
    pakistan is progressing in education and technology.thats why we are making state of the art(miles ahead than indian weapons) missiles and nukes.
    both nations are not progressing well coz india doesnt want peace and most of the resources go into this destruction machinery business.
    hope you understand.

    Poor and narrow minded indian have the dirty habit of braging about their dirty and poor country. Ninty five percent of the population in India is dying from hunger and diseases and they must focus their attention to these problems first than they should buils missiles and other high tech stuff. Pakistan is a very rich and prospurous country or it would be right to say that it is becomming one of the superpower of the world.
