Pakistan fires first submarine-launched cruise missile

Pakistan fired its first submarine-launched cruise missile on Monday, the military said, a show of force for a country that sees its missile development as a deterrent against arch-foe India.


The nuclear-capable Babur-3 missile has a range of 450 kilometers and was fired from an undisclosed location in the Indian Ocean.

"Pakistan eyes this hallmark development as a step toward reinforcing the policy of credible minimum deterrence," the military's media wing said in a statement.

The Pakistani military revealed  that the Babur-3 missile was "capable of delivering various types of payloads and will provide Pakistan with a Credible Second Strike Capability, augmenting deterrence."
