Pakistan’s Navy fires domestically-made cruise missile in ‘impressive fire power display’
The missile, launched from a fast attack craft in the northern Indian Ocean, successfully hit a target on the shore, the Pakistani Navy said.
Calling Tuesday’s test “an impressive fire power display,” the navy said it demonstrates “the impeccable level of indigenization in high-tech weaponry,” referring to the nation’s push to become self-reliant in terms of arms.
The officials didn’t specify the model used, but said it can strike sea-based targets as well.Also on rt.com Pakistan tests new homegrown ‘smart weapon’ amid tensions with India (VIDEO)
