Pakistan today said it had successfully test-fired a nuclear-capable cruise missile with a range of 700 km.
The missile has the capability to hit deep into India.
A Pakistani military statement said that, the indigenously developed Hatf-VII Babur cruise missile with stealth capabilities was capable of delivering both nuclear and conventional warheads.
The missile was launched from a state of the art multi tube missile launch vehicle (MLV), which significantly enhances the targeting and deployment options of Babur Weapon system.

The "fully automated Strategic Command and Control Support System" of the National Command Authority, controlling Pakistan's nuclear arsenal, had been deployed during the test, conducted at an unspecified location, the statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations said.
