The Pakistan Air Force has successfully tested a new domestically-built extended-range missile, said to be a “smart weapon.” It also vowed to respond “with full force” if subjected to any foreign aggression.
The weapon, which is apparently an air-to-surface missile, has been deployed by a JF-17 Thunder – a Chinese-Pakistani multirole fighter jet – the Air Force said on Tuesday. No characteristics of the new missile have been made publicly available, yet it is described as a “smart weapon” which has an “extended” range.
A short and grainy video of the test has been released, showing a fighter jet deploying the missile which then hits the designated area at a proving ground. Footage ends with a still showing the crater made by the missile.
