Pakistan “successfully” executed a training launch of the Ghauri Weapon System on Tuesday.
As articulated by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) military’s media wing, the critical exercise was designed to rigorously assess the Army Strategic Forces Command’s (ASFC) “operational and technical readiness.”
The event, detailed by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), was meticulously observed by the ASFC commander alongside an assembly of senior officers, scientists, and engineers embedded within the nation’s strategic establishments. The commander extolled the exemplary standards manifested through the troop’s proficient weapon handling and seamless attainment of both operational and technical benchmarks. Moreover, there was significant emphasis on the commendable efforts of scientists and engineers instrumental in amplifying Pakistan’s strategic potential.
Following the missile’s successful trajectory, accolades poured in from the highest echelons of governance, including the president, prime minister, and military chiefs, who collectively forwarded their congratulations, recognizing the successful manoeuvre.
Ghauri Missile: Enhancing Strategic Frontiers
Initially introduced to the world with its first successful test in 2018, the Ghauri missile system is a formidable component of the country’s defence. Boasting a reach of up to 1,300 kilometres, its versatility lies in its capacity to be armed with both conventional and nuclear warheads, significantly broadening Pakistan’s strategic deterrence capabilities.
This demonstration of military readiness, particularly following the recent triumph with the Ababeel Weapon System, underscores Pakistan’s commitment to fortifying its national security parameters.
As clarified by the ISPR, the exercise was integral to re-confirming various design and technical aspects, ensuring the reliable performance of the missile’s diverse sub-systems.
