Pakistan tests nuclear-capable subsonic cruise missile
Pakistan successfully tested a Babur subsonic cruise missile - part of Pakistan's Haft-7 missile series - capable of carrying a nuclear warhead on July 26.
With a range of 700 kilometers (435 miles), Babur is a terrain-hugging missile that can avoid radar detection.
The test follows India's recent announcement that it completed the design of its new cruise missile system, the subsonic 1,000-kilogram (2,200-pound), 1000-kilometer (621-mile) range missile with a speed of Mach 0.7 called Nirbhay.
