Pakistan Makes History with Success of Nuclear Capable Babur III Missile

Pakistan Military has made history by successfully test-firing the first Babur 3 missile. Pakistan now has a leg up on India in terms of missile technology.

The cruise missile has a range of 450km, and it was fired from an unrevealed location in the Indian Ocean on Monday.

Babur III will allow Pakistan to respond immediately in case of a nuclear attack

Not only will these missiles send a strong message to Pakistan’s enemies, but in case of a nuclear strike, Pakistan is now capable of a second strike. The ability to hide from radars only adds to it making this one of the most advanced missiles in Pakistan military’s arsenal. Pakistan is now also capable of attacking an enemy using army, navy or its air force.

According to a statement made by Major General Asif Ghafoor, the cruise missile was launched from an underwater source and it accurately hit its target with utmost precision.

What is Babur III SLCM?

The Babur III Submarine-Launched Cruise Missile (SLCM) is an advanced successor of the Babur II Ground-Launched Cruise Missile (GLCM). Babur II GLCM was successfully tested back in December 2016.

Babur III is stealthy and hits targets up to 450km away with unmatched precision

The Babur cruise missiles are stealth enabled and are designed to avoid enemy radars and strike their target with high precision and accuracy. To avoid enemy radars and air defenses, these cruise missiles stick close to ground or sea level.

The missile has two different modes – a land-attack mode and a sea-attack mode. These two modes make the cruise missile highly capable of striking targets both on land and on the sea with stealth and precision.

Other features of the Babur III include:

  • Underwater controlled propulsion
  • Advanced guidance and navigation system
  • Global Navigation, Terrain and Scene Matching Systems

Take a look at the video below to see the missile in action:

A Big Step Forward for the Country

All of the previous variants of Babur cruise missiles including the Babur III SLCM have been a success. This brings a lot more nuclear power to the nation’s hands and it gives our country “Credible Second Strike Capability”, as the military eloquently states.

It not only represents the caliber of Pakistan’s nuclear power, but also the technological prowess and developing capabilities of our scientists and engineers as well.

This successful test is another milestone achieved by Pakistan in an emerging Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) environment.

This test fire was witnessed by several people including the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJSCS) General Zubair Mahmood Hayat, DG Strategic Plans Division (SPD) Lieutenant General Mazhar Jamil, Commander Naval Strategic Force Command (NSFC) and other senior members, officials, scientists and engineers from different organizations.

  • Alhumdulillah
    Congratulation Pakistan. Under all the stress and adversity going on, this is really a positive thing.

  • Thank goodness for another fantastic addition to our arsenal.. God forbid that someone comes to attack us while we have people dying on cold floors of hospitals or children dying from malnutrition or having 30 percentage of the population never even seen the insides of a school.. Bravo.. Bravo..

    • pakistan named it babur-3. this shows how pakistan is suffering from identity crisis?.i think pakistan is the only country who defies their history and glorifies the one who invaded ,looted nd raped their women..

      • Ahhhh the 7,000 strong Modi Social media team at work — one pariah found his way to this site too, after ruining DAWN and Jung.

        Actually Ritesh, it Is India which is globally known as the Rape Capital of the world (forgot the new year incidents across India already, my dear? Or hundreds that happen daily across your poor sorry state of a wasteland called India).

        And it is not us Muslims, but your very own Hindu brothers from the fanatic and fundamentalist Hindu Terrorists of RSS and BJP in the name of Hinduvta. Or drunkards and drug addicts who lie on the streets of Delhi and Mumbai that have brought such “laurels” to your country.
        Afterall, having the highest rape rate per minute in the world is no easy achievement for a malnourished, half-naked, penniless Hindu who cannot even afford the simple luxury of a toilet.

        What will you say to the rapes of Christians, Sikhs and other minorities in the name of “Ghar Wapsi”?

        And no we are not suffering from ANY identity crises. . we know very well who we are — We are Muslims — your rulers for hundreds of years.

        If we had wanted, not one Hindu would have been walking the earth today– but it is our gracious gift to you that you even have a tongue to talk with today, you ungrateful faggot.
        Be thankful. Next time you may not get this chance either, as the next conqueror maybe like Omar Bin Khattab or Khalid Bin Waleed, not the kind-hearted Muhammed Bin Qasim.

        And now go waste your own country-mates’ time in your own country — oh I forgot–Modi is not paying you for that, but to come here and give your unwelcome opinions to us Pakistanis on Pakistani websites.

        • I feel overwhelmed pleasure, when I saw patriotism in our youth :) Yehh….they cant defeat us…even in an argument…they don’t know the power of Muslims & every one will see that Pakistan will rule the whole Indo-Pak region once again….In sha Allah.

      • Die in the hell of jealousy that you are feeling now. Apply some Burnol.
        And lets talk about history, shall we?

        “Raja Dahir was a Brahmin King,whose ancestors snatched the throne from the Buddhist rulers.[2] Soon after his coronation, his younger brother, Daharsingh, a governor, rose in rebellion, but was killed.[1] Therefore, Dahir married his sister on the advice of his minister Budhiman.[1]” Wikipedia.

        “The Chach Nama describes rule by successors of the Rai Dynasty as characterized by persecution of Buddhists, and Meds from the time of Chach.” Wikipedia.

        “The fall of Multan laid the Indus valley at the feet of the conqueror. The tribes came in, ‘ringing bells and beating drums and dancing,’ in token of welcome. The Hindu rulers had oppressed them heavily, and the Jats and Meds and other tribes were on the side of the invaders. The work of conquest, as often happened in India, was thus aided by the disunion of the inhabitants, and jealousies of race and creed conspired to help the Muslims. To such suppliants Mohammad Kasim gave the liberal terms that the Arabs usually offered to all but inveterate foes. He imposed the customary poll-tax, took hostages for good conduct, and spared the people’s lands and lives. He even left their shrines undesecrated: ‘The temples,’ he proclaimed, ‘shall be inviolate, like the churches of the Christians, the synagogues of the Jews, and the altars of the Magians.'” Stanley Lane-Poole, Medieval India under Mohammedan Rule, 712-1764, G.P. Putnam’s Sons. New York, 1970. p. 9-10

      • Not Indian but Andian! Derived from Anda and Ass combination! Stay Jealous and Keep Farting!

    • pakistan named it babur-3. this shows how Pakistan is suffering from identity crisis ?.i think pakistan is the only county who defies their history nd glorifies the one who invaded ,looted and raped their women.

      • Dear you have made my day — it is said in our country “Naqal kay liyaye bhee aqal chahiyaye” you could not even copy and paste your own message correctly twice within one hour . . .your spelling of “and” is incorrect in both messages at different places.
        But that is okay, I have competed with your IBS and IIM graduets across the world, and found them to be over-glorified clerical robots — and they are the best India has to offer, by the way, not the 99.5% of the garbage that the rest of you are.
        If it were not for Israelis and their Zionist media helping you, you would be nothing but a used toilet paper in the annals of history.

        • Aamir — only for you, no need to publish this comment.
          Please publish both my replies. . .I have started noting recently that you weasel out of any hard comments against India and Indians — you have now deleted my hard-hitting comments thrice in the last few months.
          I have recommended your site to a lot of senior people (including CEOs of some of the largest multinationals, including those in Pakistan) as a go-to site on tech in Pakistan, and if you are going to censor patriotic Pakistanis’ sentiments like this, then I will be forced to reverse my referrals, and stop visiting your website as well.
          If you disagree with the language (which unfortunately Indians do not seem to mind when they are spewing venom against us on their media channels and their websites), then please delete the specific words, but at least put in this much effort, rather than deleting a whole page of comments.

          • Chor dou bhai, Ritesh bichara pehlay hi perishan hai sochalay k liye tum aur kyuin soch main daal rahay ho usay.

          • Same here Amir Bhai! I also did marketing of your website always here & there, but what you are doing?….how can you censor the patriotic comments which we want to read? don’t try to push us back,..we wont allow you to hold/stop voice of Pakistan.Please

  • Aamir deleted my real reply, as perhaps he felt it was too hard hitting on the poor Ritesh, and I am waiting for him to actually do proper editorial work, and publish my reply (after deleting any specific words he has issues with), and I challenge any Indian to reply on that.
    You would have enjoyed that a lot more :)

    • Nothing’s deleted here. But comments with some catch words are put on hold. Catch words == abuse etc.

      • Thanks Aamir for publishing my other comment, I appreciate your candor and take-back my earlier comment on not publishing as you now have done it.
        I agree , and accept that we should not use bad language even despite what they do to us in their own media,
        But unfortunately, when I see such Indian planted and paid toadies of Modi, I lose my temper.
        Thank you for correcting me.
        We as a nation need to be fearless and confident, our time is just around the corner Nation. Fear NOTHING but Allah, Pakistanis, and success will kiss your feet! Pakistan Zindabad!
