KARACHI: In an impressive display of fire power, the Pakistan Navy on Wednesday conducted live weapon firing of a newly commissioned fast attack craft – a surface to surface anti-ship missile.

The PNS Himmat fired the indigenously developed Harbah Naval Cruise Missile in the North Arabian Sea. The missile, which also has the capability of land attack, accurately hit its target, signifying the impressive capabilities of Harbah Naval Weapon System.

Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi witnessed the firing onboard Pakistan Navy’s ship Alamgir. The successful live weapon firing has once again demonstrated the credible fire power of the navy and the impeccable level of indigenisation in high tech weaponry achieved by Pakistan's defence industry. This is a clear manifestation of government's resolve to achieve self-reliance in the field.

Naval chief expressed his utmost satisfaction on the operational readiness of Pakistan Navy fleet units and commended the efforts of all those involved in achieving this ‘significant’ milestone successfully.

He laid emphasis on the need to capitalise on indigenous defence capabilities and reduce reliance on other countries. He also reaffirmed the navy’s resolve to ensure seaward defence of Pakistan and safeguard national maritime interests at all costs.

“Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi also appreciated the efforts made by our engineers and researchers in making Harbah Naval Weapon System project a success,” added a press release issued after the event.
