Pakistan army has conducted a test flight of Fatah-1, a guided multi-launch rocket system (GMLSR), the endemically designed armament system is prearranged to carry a conventional warhead up to a range of 140kilometeres, according to Director General of Pakistan Army, Media Wing, major general Babar Iftikhar.

Defense analyst Muhammad Ali said in a praising manner that the new system is very fast, accurate, survivable, and difficult to intercept.

“President, Prime Minister of Pakistan, Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee and COAS have congratulated participating troops and scientists on the successful conduct of flight test,” the ISPR said.

A statement released by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) read: “The weapon system will give Pakistan Army the capability of a precision target engagement deep in enemy territory.”

ISPR also shared a video of the launch, in which a missile can be seen being fired from a launcher quite vividly. However, no additional information was released about the armament or the specifications of the rocket system. The intention behind the test flight, the location, and the date on which the test was conducted, its expectations, and objectives were also kept confidential.

Last year, Pakistan conducted tests of its Ra’ad-II cruise missile and Ghaznavi surface-to-surface ballistic missile, and this year the GMLRS has greater accuracy than the ballistic rockets with a higher probability to kill.

It can be deduced that the development of this conventional system by Pakistan is a response to India’s focus on the development of its own conventional proficiencies. Besides response options to India’s ‘cold start doctrine’.
