Pak successfully test fires enhanced version of Babur cruise missile

Pakistan has successfully test fired an enhanced version of the indigenously-built Babur cruise missile that can deliver conventional and non-conventional weapons with a range of 700 kilometres, covering many Indian cities.
The Pakistan Army said that the ‘Babur Weapon System-1 (B)’ is a low-flying, terrain-hugging missile, which carries certain stealth features and is capable of carrying various types of warheads.
The missile incorporates advanced aerodynamics and avionics that can strike targets both at land and sea with high accuracy, the army said in a statement.
“Equipped with the Terrain Contour Matching (TERCOM) and all time Digital Scene Matching and Area Co-relation (DSMAC) technologies, which enable it to engage in various types of targets with pinpoint accuracy even in the absence of GPS navigation, thus making it an important force multiplier for Pakistan’s strategic deterrence,” the army said.
Senior officials and scientists of the Strategic Plans Division were present to witness the launch.
President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi appreciated the scientists and engineers on the successful conduct of the missile test. — PTI
