The Pakistan Army carried out a successful test-firing of a Hatf-7 (Babur) nuclear-capable cruise missile on Monday, DawnNews reported.

The launch, the site of which was not disclosed, was made from a mobile launcher according to media reports.

Babur, which has a range of 700 km (420 miles) can hit precision targets and employs stealth technology according to local media reports. The weapon was inducted into the Pakistani arsenal in 2010 and has only been tested a handful of times since then, according to defpro.com defense website.

Pakistan's air force tested its air-launched Ra'ad (Hatf 8) missile on May 31. Pakistan's strategic cruise missile arsenal will consist entirely of Babur and Ra'ad missiles in the near future.
