Pak Navy successfully fires anti-ship missile from helicopter

The Pakistan Navy today successfully test-fired an anti-ship air to sea level missile in North Arabian Sea, with its chief vowing to safeguard the sea borders and the country's interests at "every cost."

According to a spokesperson of the Pakistan Navy, Sea King multi-role helicopter fired the missile in open sea, which successfully hit the target.

Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral Muhammad Zakaullah witnessed the missile firing demonstration.

Zakaullah said the successful firing demonstration was a testament to Pakistan Navy's war preparedness and professional capabilities.

In March, the Navy had conducted a successful test of a land-based, anti-ship missile. The Pakistan Navy in May received the seven Westland Sea King multi-role helicopters it had ordered from the UK in 2016. PTI
