Islamabad: The Pakistan Navy on Thursday "successfully" test-fired surface-to-sea missile, it was officially announced.

The missile, equipped with avionics, modern technology, "accurately" hit its target in the sea, a navy spokesperson said in a statement.

The induction of the missile, the spokesperson added, would help strengthen defence and operational capabilities of the navy.

The Ababeel test flight was aimed at validating various design and technical parameters of the weapon system.

Some days earlier in January before Ababeel test, submarine-launched cruise missile Babur-III was successfully test-fired.

Babur weapons system incorporates advanced aerodynamics and avionics that can strike targets both at land and sea with high accuracy at a range of 700 km.

Babur-III is a low flying, terrain hugging missile, which carries certain stealth features and is capable of carrying various types of warheads.
