ISLAMABAD: Pakistan conducted a successful flight test Tuesday of a locally developed cruise missile named “Ra’ad” with a range of 350 kilometers, the military said. “The state of the art Ra’ad ALCM (air-launched cruise missile) is equipped with highly advanced guidance and navigation system that ensures engagement of targets with pin point accuracy,” the military said in a statement. Tuesday’s test is the latest in a series carried out by Pakistan and its archrival India since both demonstrated nuclear weapons capability in 1998. Pakistan test-fired a ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead on December 15 last year.
