Pakistan Air Force (PAF) has successfully tested a long-range smart missile from JF-17 Thunder with pinpoint accuracy on Tuesday.
The successful tests mark a great achievement as the weapon has the capability to hit the target day and night.
The Air Chief, Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan lauded the indigenous capabilities of Pakistani scientists and engineers who equipped PAF with a very potent weapon.
PAF released an official statement, congratulating the nation on the monumental achievement.
The successful trial has provided JF-17 Thunder a very potent and assured day and night capability to engage variety of targets with pinpoint accuracy.
The development comes in the aftermath of recent cross-border tensions between India and Pakistan.

Pakistan is a peace-loving nation but if subjected to aggression by adversary, we would respond with full force.
