Pakistan on Saturday successfully test fired its longest-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 "nuclear and conventional warheads with high accuracy," a Pakistan military statement said. The upgraded and new version of the Shaheen II missile was carried "to validate additional technical parameters beyond those that were verified in the last test fire in March 2005," it said. The statement said the Shaheen II missile is Pakistan's longest-range missile.
