Its still not clear whether its Pak Airforce & Navy joint weapon system or US has sell some of its AGM-154 JSOW to Pak .
Or does it have any link with H-4/H-2 derivatives (many consider H-4/H-2 to an air launched medium range bomb)
And by the way which PAF airborne radar system offers integration and firing capability of an "American standoff weapon"???!!!..........thanks ,Ali

It has been confirmed. It is infact the American AGM-154A JSOW and can be integrated with the F-16s that are in service with the PAF.

Pakistan successfully test fires long-range nuclear-capable missile


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (Agencies) Pakistan on Saturday successfully test fired a long-range nuclear-capable surface-to-surface missile, the military said. The ballistic Missile Hatf VI (Shaheen II), with a range of 2,500 kilometers, can carry conventional and non-conventional weapons, a Pakistan military statement said, adding that the ``test was conducted to validate additional technical parameters beyond those that were verified in the last test fire in March 2005.'' The statement did not disclose where the latest test was conducted. Speaking after the successful test, Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz made it clear that Pakistan's strategy of credible minimum deterrence was fully in place and was a guarantee of peace in the region. He said his government was fully alive to developments in the region and reiterated that Pakistan would never accept discrimination of any kind. In a separate message, the President General Pervez Musharraf also congratulated the team on its outstanding success. (First Posted @ 9:45 PST Updated@ 10:30 PST)

Still no confirmation if a 3000Km missile is in its final stages or not. It seems that, for now, Pakistan is content with increasing the efficiency and accuracy of its current missile force rather than coming up with a new one.

Pakistan builds on Chinese SAM system

James C O'Halloran Editor, Jane's Land-Based Air Defence

Pakistan is now in a position to series-produce a modified version of the Chinese Qiang Wei-2 (QW-2) man-portable surface-to-air missile (SAM) system known locally as the Anza Mk III, according to documents recently acquired in Asia.

Development of the system is understood to have been facilitated by the transfer of Chinese technology, including thermal-imaging and infra-red night-vision system technology.

It would appear from photographic evidence that Pakistan has made several modifications to the system, probably to conform to local requirements and operational use with the Pakistani armed forces.

One such major modification is the firing unit, or 'gripstock', which in the Pakistani version seems more modern and of the type associated with the Russian Igla missile, as opposed to the Chinese firing unit, which is of the type normally associated with the Russian Strela man-portable SAM. The Igla system is known to contain circuitry that enhances the weapon's engagement capabilities. It is also highly likely that the Pakistani Anza Mk III, although modelled on the Chinese QW-2, has been locally modified to allow it to be used with Russian-made missiles should they become available. The Anza Mk III is, therefore, likely to offer an enhanced detection, launch and flight capability compared with the QW-2, with its firing unit possibly interchangeable with the Russian Igla and Igla-1 SAM systems.

Seems like a cooked up "report," it does not have anything new than what was already being ASSUMED back in 1998:

http://www.bu.edu/globalbeat/nucwatc...tch071798.html

I would like to speak with the nameless independent analysts.

Reports
like this really give out wrong and false information and that is not a good thing when we are faced with comparative study of world nuclear powers.

Pakistan tests nuclear-capable ballistic missile

ISLAMABAD, March 3 (AFP) Mar 03, 2007
Pakistan on Saturday test-fired a short-range nuclear-capable ballistic missile, its second test within eight days, the military said.
The surface-to-surface Abdali has a range of 200 kilometers (125 miles) and is one of the earliest missile systems developed by Pakistan.

"The test was aimed at validation of the desired technical parameters which has been successfully achieved," the military said in a statement.

Pakistan tested the Shaheen II, or Hatf VI, missile with a range of 2,000 kilometres (1,240 miles) on February 23, two days after signing a historic deal with rival India to cut the risk of atomic weapons accidents.

The neighbours have routinely conducted missile tests since carrying out tit-for-tat nuclear detonations in May 1998.

Pakistan Successfully Tests Nuclear-Capable Missile
Islamabad (AFP) Feb 23, 2007
Pakistan Friday test-fired its longest range nuclear-capable ballistic missile, two days after signing a deal with rival India to cut the risk of atomic weapons accidents, the military said. The Shaheen II, or Hatf VI, missile with a range of 2,000 kilometres (1,240 miles) was launched from an undisclosed location, military spokesman Major General Shaukat Sultan told AFP.
"The test was very successful. It was carried out to validate technical parameters and it hit the target with 100 percent accuracy," Sultan said.

"It is a two-stage solid-fuel-based missile capable of carrying all types of warhead including nuclear."

Pakistan had informed "neighbouring countries" in advance about the missile test, foreign office spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam said. Pakistan is bordered by India, Afghanistan, China and Iran.

"We conduct these tests from time to time according to our requirement and defence needs. It was not meant to convey any message to anyone. It was not any country-specific," she said.

Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz congratulated the missile's technical team "on its outstanding success," a military statement said.

"The missile test was part of (a) continuous process of validation and technical improvement, which Pakistan follows to consolidate and verify its various land-based strategic missile systems," the statement said.

The test comes at a key time in relations between New Delhi and Islamabad following the firebombing of a cross-border train at midnight Sunday, which killed 68 Pakistanis and Indians.

Pakistan Foreign Minister Khurshid Kasuri went ahead with a visit to India starting on Tuesday, during which the two countries signed the nuclear weapon safeguard agreement.

Friday's missile launch was watched by Pakistan's Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff General Ehsan Ul Haq, who said the test was "an important milestone in Pakistan's quest for sustaining strategic balance in South Asia."

India and Pakistan carried out tit-for-tat nuclear detonations in May 1998 and have routinely conducted missile tests since, even after the start of a slow-moving peace process in January 2004.

The neighbours have fought three wars since independence from Britain in 1947, two of them over the disputed Himalayan territory of Kashmir, which is divided between the two and claimed by both in its entirety.

Here is the Detail

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Thursday successfully test-fired a nuclear-capable cruise missile for the third time, the Inter Services Public Relation(ISPR) said in a statement.

The Hatf VII Babar missile has a range of 700 kilometers (435 miles) and can carry all kinds of warheads, it said in a statement.

"The Babar is a terrain hugging, radar avoiding cruise missile, whose range has now been enhanced to 700 kilometers," it said.

The chairman of Pakistan’s Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Ehsan ul Haq, as well as senior military officials and scientists witnessed the test.

Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz have congratulated the scientists and engineers on this "very important success", it said.
