    Pakistan launches first submarine-launched cruise missile Babur-3

    Pakistan conducted its first successful test fire of Submarine Launched Cruise Missile (SLCM) Babur-3 having a range of 450 kilometers, from an undisclosed location in the Indian Ocean.


    The missile was fired from an underwater, mobile platform and hit its target with precise accuracy. Babur-3 is a sea-based variant of Ground Launched Cruise Missile (GLCM) Babur-2, which was successfully tested earlier in December, last year.


    Babur-3 SLCM incorporates state of the art technologies including underwater controlled propulsion and advanced guidance and navigation features, duly augmented by Global Navigation, Terrain and Scene Matching Systems. The missile features terrain hugging and sea skimming flight capabilities to evade hostile radars and air defenses, in addition to certain stealth technologies, in an emerging regional Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) environment.


    Babur-3 SLCM in land-attack mode, is capable of delivering various types of payloads and will provide Pakistan with a Credible Second Strike Capability, augmenting deterrence. While the pursuit and now the successful attainment of a second strike capability by Pakistan represents a major scientific milestone, it is manifestation of the strategy of measured response to nuclear strategies and postures being adopted in Pakistan’s neighborhood.


    The test was witnessed by the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) General Zubair Mahmood Hayat, DG Strategic Plans Division (SPD) Lieutenant General Mazhar Jamil, Commander Naval Strategic Force Command (NSFC), senior officials, scientists and engineers from Scientific Strategic Organizations.


    The CJCSC and three services chiefs congratulated all the officials involved, on achieving this highly significant milestone. He also highlighted that successful test fire of SLCM also demonstrates confidence on our scientists and engineers in fostering the technological prowess, through indigenization and self-reliance. Pakistan eyes this hallmark development as a step towards reinforcing policy of credible minimum deterrence

    Pakistanis added a colour changing feature?
    :confused::confused:
    Here, its launch okay.
    But in second picture they fixed previous Babur-2 LACM video, simply fake test! Missile camouflages don't change color & size!

    Looks like three different videos joined together

    one is the launch which appears from under the water,

    Then red color missile in mid flight.

    Now notice the change in the size of missile, it has not been clearly caught in frame, it actually looked like attack helicopter shooting at the target. Pakistanis please explain (if any on this forum) this change of color and physical character of missile.

    1st shot is interesting , the video shows the missile coming out but no sign of the cruise stage kicking in , ie still powered by the rocket (booster) stage.
    :D
    also regarding the launch platform they here r claiming it is the Augusta 90 B , but that is easier said than done , considering the extensive modification that would be required to the fire control systems etc to support the launch of the SLCM.

    they just cut pasted a video showing a SLCM launch (could be aharpoon/exocet).

    India also has similar failure, our missile lifts of properly but deviates from its path after travelling a few hundred kilometres.

    I have earlier suspected that, India has not been able to deal with it's cruise missile Nirbhay for more than a decade even after fact that
    India produces 81 out of 94 defined missile technologies
    (China: 92/94; Russia: 94/94; US: 94/94).
    India, China, Russia, USA, EU every country has suffered missile failures, specially cruise missiles in past.

    But Pakistan only @39/94.

    This production includes Turbofan engines which India has Pak doesn't, so, it uses Soviet bought NPO engines.

    Simply doesn't make sense that they could succeed in development of such a missile with such a low budget.

    The Official Video from Pakistani army's media wing ISPR's official Twitter account, just proved it.
    @YarS @Falcon
    Exactly my point! Strategic Weapons can never be tested secretly. You have to always publish at least one NOTAM and one NAVAREA warning for safety of plane and ships passing through that route. You can only hide that which weapon you tested.

    India has filed 16 NOTAMs and NAVAREA warnings last year alone (Pakistan at @just 2).
    Post the official NOTAM and NAVAREA warning here issued for Babur-3.

    Otherwise, such test never existed.

    Here is a clear image of the missile leaving the ocean:

    3BFE570E00000578-4102036-image-a-113_1483975775009.jpg

    It is orange.

    I think the frame rate is affecting how the missile looks toward the end of the video.

    Clear HD video if available will end this dispute.
