RAWALPINDI: The Pakistan Army on Wednesday conducted successful training launch of Fatah-II Guided Rocket System with a range of 400 kilometres.

The launch was aimed at perfecting the launch drills and procedures. Equipped with 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 in a statement said.

Fatah-II is being inducted into Pakistan’s Artillery Divisions for stand-off, precision engagement of deep targets. The rocket system will significantly upgrade the reach and lethality of Pakistan Army’s conventional arsenal.

The flight test was witnessed by the Pakistan Army’s Chief of General Staff, senior officers from the three services and dedicated scientists and engineers.

President Asif Zardari, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, Chief of Army Staff and all services chiefs have congratulated the participating troops and scientists on this excellent achievement.

The prime minister, in a statement, said Fatah-II is the result of tireless work of Pakistan Army and scientists which is making the country’s defence impregnable with every passing day.
