Pakistan on Tuesday conducted a successful test flight of Fatah-1, a Pakistan-made guided multi-launch rocket system capable of delivering conventional warheads, said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement on Twitter.
According to the Pakistan Army’s media wing, the new weapons system will equip the military with the ability to strike deep into enemy territory.
The flight of the Shaheen-1A medium-range ballistic missile on March 26, 2021, was the last successful test by Pakistan. Pakistan has conducted a successful test flight of the indigenously developed Fatah-1, said ISPR. A Twitter post by the director-general ISPR Major Gen Babar Iftikhar said that Fatah-1 guided multi-launch rocket system is capable of delivering a conventional warhead up to a range of 140 kilometers.
“The Weapon System will give Pakistan Army capability of precision target engagement deep in enemy territory,” read the post. The test flight of the Shaheen-1A ballistic missile on March 26, 2021, was the last successful test conducted by Pakistan.
According to the ISPR, the missile spanned a range of 900 kilometers and the test flight was aimed at the re-validating of various design and technical parameters of the weapon system including an advanced navigation system.
