    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has successfully test-fired indigenously-developed surface to surface nuclear-capable missile Ababeel, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Tuesday.

    “Pakistan successfully conducted first flight test of SSM Ababeel, Range 2,200 kilometres,’ DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor tweeted.

    According to the military’s media wing, the missile is capable of delivering multiple warheads, using Multiple Independent Re-entry Vehicle (MIRV) technology. “The test flight was aimed at validating various design and technical parameters of the weapon system,” a statement said.

    “Ababeel is capable of carrying nuclear warheads and has the capability to engage multiple targets with high precision, defeating the enemy’s hostile radars,” it added.

    The ISPR said, development of Ababeel Weapon System is aimed at ensuring survivability of Pakistan’s ballistic missiles in the growing regional Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) environment. “This will further reinforce deterrence.”

    Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Zubair Mahmood Hayat, Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman and Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Muhammad Zakaullah congratulated the nation and the missile launch team on the achievement.

    The development came over two weeks after indigenously-developed submarine-launched cruise missile Babur-III was successfully test-fired.

    Babur weapons system incorporates advanced aerodynamics and avionics that can strike targets both at land and sea with high accuracy at a range of 700kms. It is a low flying, terrain hugging missile, which carries certain stealth features and is capable of carrying various types of warheads.

    I don't think I have any technical issue here like Babur-3. Enjoy and congrats from India.;)

    Though, missile was tested for 1200kms range against it's claimed capability of 2200kms, they did at least file a NOTAM.

    here is the NOTAM

    This was thing I was asking you for Babur.;)

    Congratulations :pakistani::indian: beautiful missile!:)
    There was a similar Indian Missile Project by year end (difference is that it's an ICBM with 10,000 kms extra range with both MIRV & MaRV), let me prevent myself from bringing that in this thread. 2200 kms is enough for Pakistan.

    My three curious questions:
    1. I don't know if missile was tested with MIRVs or platform only.
    2. How many re entry vehicles it does or will carry.
    3. What is flight altitude?
    If RVs > 3, then Pak surely has achieved capability to start a decent launch oriented space program (if achieves enough elevated altitude).

    Do your orbital launch and become 10th country capable of launching satellites before Koreans do it.

    Again, congrats

    sources are claiming it can carry 3 RV . But Ababeel is in its initial stage of development . its RV and range both will be increased with passage of time . As far as Babur3 is concerned , I have already told u it was tested in 2016 and warning was issued then .

    India and Pakistan are lucky, they can just fire into the ocean.

    I think Turkey can use our launch pads if they want to test BM or CM . No Problem

    More powerful motor will be needed for more RVs.
    Anyway, does anybody know the flight altitude?
    More RVs you add, more altitude will be required.
