Pak Marines have tested the man portable air defence system to enhance their capabilities against the enemy air attacks. Three such missiles were tested in the Sonmiani test range. Missile uses a very sensitive passive infrared guidance to home on to its targets and due to its light weight it can be carried and launched by the Marines. Missile has a range of about 6 kilometers.
Pak Marines have acquired these missiles to provide short range air defense capability which will allow them to defend themselves from the air attacks by the enemy forces. This test was witnessed by the Chief of the Pakistan Navy, Admiral Noman Bashir.
