Missile system is aimed at strengthening deterrence and enhancing strategic stability, says ISPR


Pakistan on Wednesday conducted a successful flight test of the Ababeel weapon system, said a statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR)

The latest test of the ballistic missile system was aimed at “re-validating various design, technical parameters, and performance evaluation of different sub-systems”.

“The missile system is aimed at strengthening deterrence and enhancing strategic stability in the region through the operationalisation of full spectrum deterrence in the overall construct of credible minimum deterrence,” said ISPR.

 

The launch was witnessed by Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) General Sahir Shamshad Mirza, senior officers from the Strategic Plans Division and Strategic Forces Command, scientists and engineers of strategic organisations.

CJCSC appreciated the technical prowess, dedication and commitment of all those who contributed towards the successful test. The President, Prime Minister of Pakistan and Services Chiefs also congratulated all members of the Strategic Forces on the achievement.

Previously, in 2021, Pakistan successfully conducted a test flight of the locally developed Fatah-1 Guided Multi-Launch Rocket System. The rocket system has a range of 140 kilometers and the capability for accurate targeting.

On the other hand, on December 30, the Pakistan Air Force marked a significant milestone by initiating the production of the advanced JF-17 Thunder Block 3 fighter jets, equipped with improved radar and rivaling the capabilities of India’s Raphael aircraft.
