BEIJING, April 30 (Xinhuanet) -- Pakistan has successfully conducted a flight test of its homegrown air launched cruise missile.

The Pakistani military says the missile can deliver nuclear and conventional warheads with pinpoint accuracy.

The Cruise Missile has a range of 350 kilometers and has been developed exclusively for launch from aerial platforms.

The missile has low detection probability due to stealth design and the materials used in creating it. Analysts say the weapon gives the country much improved defensive capabilities.
