Amid escalating tensions within its neighborhood, including Iran's involvement with Israel's military following the latter's operation in Gaza, Pakistan has ramped up its efforts to bolster its armed forces. A significant development in this regard happened this week.
Pakistan on Wednesday carried out a successful training flight test of its Fatah-II missile system, the media wing of the country's military, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), said in a statement.
"Equipped with a state-of-the-art navigation system, unique trajectory and manoeuvrable features, Fatah-II is capable of engaging targets with high precision and defeating any missile defence system," the ISPR noted while highlighting the weapons system's strengths.
The Artillery Divisions of Pakistan's Armed Forces are being equipped with the Fatah-II Guided Rocket System.
The induction of the Fatah-II is being carried out to increase the precision strike capability of Pakistani forces as it is said to have a range of 400 km, which allows the Islamic nation's troops to engage targets deep inside the territories of its enemies.
According to ISPR's description, "the rocket system will significantly upgrade the reach and lethality of Pakistan Army's conventional arsenal."
The Fatah-II missile is the second-generation version of its predecessor Fatah-I.
The Fatah-II has undergone massive upgrades - for example - the Fatah-I could only take on targets within a radius of 150 km while the former's range has been more than doubled to around 400 km.
