Pakistan devised the world’s most sophisticated missile technology at home, called the Cruise Missile System. Pakistan indigenously developed two versions of this weapon, one is ALCM – air-launched Cruise Missile called Ra’ad, and the other is LACM – land-attack Cruise Missile called Babur; the sea version of babur is also developed that can hit any target with pinpoint accuracy.
These classes of missiles are called guided missiles that can travel at constant velocity and in a terrain hugging mode, i.e., it travels with the crust of earth, to avoid detection, it can’t be tracked by a radar system, and can reach and destroy targets at land, air and sea.
After the development of this technology, the Indian Pundits find it difficult to defend themselves against the upcoming Pakistani warheads. Pakistan has continuously followed the golden principles laid down by Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, to ‘threaten no one but remain deterrent, to eliminate and stabilize any foreign threat’.
The Pakistani nation, defense establishment and political leaders are continuously declaring that we will not threaten anyone, but we will remain deterrent to any threat; and that is why the Pakistani nation sees their nuclear arsenal as their “Treasured Sword”.Tags: ALCM | Arm Race | Ballistic Missile Defense | LACM | Pakistan Cruise Missiles | Pakistan Defense
