RAWALPINDI, Pakistan, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- Pakistan on Monday said it successfully test-fired a Hatf-VII missile capable of carrying both conventional and nuclear missiles.

The Babur cruise missile has a range of 435 miles and has "stealth" features, the state-run Inter-Services Public Relations agency reported.

It is programmed with terrain contour and digital scene matching technology, the agency added.

The path of the missile can be monitored remotely in real time.

The missile was fired from a multi-tube missile launch vehicle, which "significantly enhances" the range and mobility of the missile, ISPR said.
