Pakistan’s Harbah Missile System

Read Time:1 Minute, 4 Second

Harbah is a liquid-fueled, anti-ship and land attack subsonic cruise missile, designed to launch from a surface (ship) platform. Pakistan classifies it range as 280 kilometers. It uses cutting-edge navigational techniques, including the Inertial Navigation System (INS) with GPS and GLONASS, to provide an incredibly accurate armament system that can hit the intended targets with pinpoint accuracy.

This missile system features a modular architecture that enables it to be equipped with various warheads (fragmentation, anti-ship), alternative guidance systems, and range capabilities to fulfill the needs of other navies.

Analysts believe that the Harbah Missile system is based on the Babar Cruise Missile, thus we can analyze that this missile has a striking range of 750 kilometers.

This missile system is already in service with Pakistan Navy. Multiple ships in Pakistan Navy are equipped with this weapon system. Pakistan Navy is also planning to arm Milgem class-guided missile corvettes.

Naval News reported that Pakistan also offered Transfer to Technology (ToT) to Qatar, in order to produce the Harbah Missile system locally.
