ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday successfully conducted the test fire of indigenously developed short-range surface-to-surface multi-tube missile Hatf IX (NASR).

NASR, with a range of 60 kilometres, can carry nuclear warheads of appropriate yield, with high accuracy, and possesses shoot and scoot attributes.

According to Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), this quick response system addresses the need to deter evolving threats, especially at shorter ranges.

The test was witnessed by Strategic Plans Division Director General Lieutenant General Khalid Ahmed Kidwai (r), NESCOM Chairman Irfan Burney, senior officers from the strategic forces and scientists and engineers of strategic organisations.
