RAWALPINDI: The Pakistan Army conducted a successful flight test of the Fatah-II missile system, said a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Wednesday.
The missile is equipped with “state of the art avionics” and a sophisticated navigation system, enabling a unique flight trajectory. The military’s media wing added that the weapon system can engage targets with precision out to a distance of 400 kilometres.
The test was witnessed by senior officers from the tri-services, scientists and engineers, said the ISPR.
“The president, prime minister, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff committee, and chief of army staff congratulated participating troops and scientists on the successful conduct of the flight test.”
Earlier in October, a successful flight test of the Ababeel weapon system was conducted.
The test of the ballistic missile system was aimed at “re-validating various designs, technical parameters, and performance evaluations of different sub-systems,” a press release stated.
“The missile system is aimed at strengthening deterrence and enhancing strategic stability in the region through the operationalization of full-spectrum deterrence in the overall construct of credible minimum deterrence,” it added.
