ISPR, Pakistan, and NESCOM

I haven’t flogged this horse enough, I guess.

I recently mentioned that a subsidiary of Pakistan’s National Engineering and Scientific Commission (NESCOM) is “responsible” for the country’s cruise missile programs.

Now an ISPR press release from 18 February links NESCOM with a recent Ra’ad II test:

 Pakistan conducted successful flight test of Air Launched Cruise Missile “Ra’ad-II”. Ra’ad-II, with a range of 600 Km, which significantly enhances air delivered strategic standoff capability on land and at sea. The weapon system is equipped with state of the art guidance and navigation systems ensuring engagement of targets with high precision.

The successful flight test was witnessed by Lieutenant General Nadeem Zaki Manj, Director General Strategic Plans Division, Dr. Nabeel Hayat Malik, Chairman NESCOM, senior officers from Strategic Plans Division, Strategic Forces and Strategic Organizations.
