"Pakistan today conducted a successful Flight Test of the indigenously developed Air Launched Cruise Missile, Hatf-VIII (Ra' ad)," an army statement said.
The Ra'ad Missile, with a range of over 350 KM, enables Pakistan to achieve strategic standoff capability on land and at Sea, it said.
'Cruise Technology' is extremely complex and has been developed by only a few countries in the world.
The state of the art Ra'ad Cruise Missile with Stealth Capabilities is a Low Altitude, Terrain Hugging Missile with high maneuverability, and can deliver nuclear and conventional warheads with pin point accuracy.
A major additional feature of Thursday's test was the effective employment of the National Command Authority's fully automated Strategic Command and Control Support System (SCCSS), the army said.
