RAWALPINDI: Pakistan on Tuesday successfully test fired short range surface-to-surface Hatf-IX NASR missile.

According to ISPR, NASR, with a range of 60 kilometre and in-flight manoeuvre capability is a quick response system with shoot and scoot attributes. It contributes to the full spectrum deterrence against threats in view of evolving scenarios.

The test was witnessed by Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Kayani, Strategic Plans Division Director General Lieutenant General (r) Khalid Ahmed Kidwai, NESCOM Chairman Muhammad Irfan Burney, Army Strategic Forces Command Commander Lieutenant General Tariq Nadeem Gilani, senior officers from the strategic forces and scientists and engineers from strategic organisations.
