ISLAMABAD (PTI): Pakistan on Tuesday successfully test fired Hatf IX (Nasr) missile, a short range surface-to-surface missile that has a range of 60-kilometres.

The test fire was conducted with successive launches of 4 x missiles (Salvo) from a state-of-the-art multi tube launcher, the military said.

Nasr, with in-flight manoeuvre capability, is a quick response system equipped with shoot and scoot attributes, it said in a statement.

Army Chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and other top army commanders witnessed the launch. Gen Kayani said the test consolidates Pakistan's deterrence capability.
