Pakistan conducts successful training launch of Ghauri Ballistic Missile

Pakistan has successfully conducted a training launch of the Ghauri ballistic missile.

The purpose of the launch was aimed at testing the operational and technical readiness of Army Strategic Forces Command (ASFC).

Noteworthy, the training launch of the Ghauri missile took place days after the United States (US) imposed sanctions on three Chinese companies for supplying missile-applicable items for Pakistan’s ballistic missile programme.

Earlier on October 18, Pakistan had successfully conducted the flight test of the Ababeel Weapon System to further strengthen its deterrence.

That test of the ballistic missile system was aimed at re-validating various design, technical parameters, and performance evaluation of different sub-systems.
