A day after Pakistan claimed it successfully test-fired its first Submarine-Launched Cruise Missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead up to 450km from an undisclosed location in the Indian Ocean, a satellite expert has questioned Pakistan, claiming that Pakistan used computer graphics to ‘fake’ the test.
The satellite imagery expert has put out pictures and videos on his Twitter handle claiming to expose the discrepancies between scientific facts and Pakistan’s claims:
On Monday, Pakistan claimed that it had conducted its first successful test-fire of a Submarine-Launched Cruise Missile (SLCM) capable of carrying a nuclear warhead from an undisclosed location in the Indian Ocean, giving the country a "credible" second strike capability, the military said.
Meanwhile , Defence sources have told TIMES NOW that Babur test didn't take place on Monday and that the distance traversed by the missile is considerably less than half the distance Pakistan is claiming.
Defence sources also dismissed Pakistan’s claim as a “propaganda attempt” in the wake of India's successful Agni 5 test.
The missile, Babur-3, with a range of 450 kilometers was fired from an underwater, mobile platform and hit its target with precise accuracy, the Inter Services Public Relations, the media wing of the Pakistani military had said in a statement. Babur-3 is a sea-based variant of Ground Launched Cruise Missile (GLCM) Babur-2, which was successfully tested earlier in December, last year.
