Pakistan tests Shaheen-1A surface-to-surface ballistic missile
Pakistan has reported on the testing of the new Shaheen-1A surface-to-surface ballistic missile. These tests became a serious event for the Islamic republic, which for many years has been busy with the modernization of its weapons, primarily to confront its main enemy - neighboring India, with which Pakistan has a long-standing conflict rooted in more than seventy years history section of British India.
According to the communiqué of the Pakistani armed forces, the tests of the new missile were aimed at re-checking the technical characteristics of the system. But more detailed information about the missile in the command of the Pakistani army did not disclose, limiting itself only to dry lines of the report on the test.
It is known that the general director of the strategic planning department, Lieutenant General Nadim Zaki Manj and the commander of the strategic forces of the army, Lieutenant General Muhammad Ali, as well as a large group of scientists and engineers from various military and industrial organizations, were present at the test.
The army authorities highly appreciated the tests carried out and congratulated scientists and engineers on the success of their brainchild - a new ballistic missile. The military thanked the scientists for their skill, loyalty to the state and commitment to their work. Also, the creators of the rocket received letters of gratitude from Pakistani President Arif Alvi, Prime Minister Imran Khan and senior officials of the Ministry of Defense.
Previously, similar tests were carried out in March 2021. Then the army announced the successful launch of the Shaheen 1-A medium-range ballistic missile with a total mass of 9,5 tons. A missile with a range of up to 900 kilometers is capable of carrying a 35 kt nuclear warhead, which adds cause for concern to Pakistan's neighbors, primarily India. There is no doubt that Islamabad will continue the course of further developing its nuclear and missile potential, especially in the context of unresolved conflicts with neighboring India.
