The Hatf V, named Ghauri-5, is a medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM) developed by Khan Research Laboratories (KRL) of Pakistan. Powered by a single stage liquid fuel rocket motor, the missile has an optimum range of 1,500 km and can carry a payload of 700 kg

The Hatf-V ballistic missile can carry both conventional and nuclear warheads over a distance of 1300 kms.

This was the eighth missile tested by Pakistan since April 25 this year when it had tested an improved version of the nuclear-capable Hatf-IV intermediate range ballistic missile with the range of 1,000 km.

Pakistan’s array of missile tests came just six days after India tested the Agni-V missile with a range of 5,000 km.

On May 10, Pakistan tested the nuclear-capable Hatf-III ballistic missile with a range of 290 km.

The President and Prime Minister of Pakistan congratulated all ranks of the Army Strategic Force Command on the excellent standard achieved during training which was reflected in the proficient handling of the weapon system in the field and the accuracy of the training launch .
