ISLAMABAD, May 15 (Xinhua) -- The Pakistani army conducted a successful training launch of the Fatah-II guided rocket system with a range of 400 km on Wednesday, the military said in a statement.

The launch was aimed at perfecting the launch drills and procedures, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the media wing of the army said in the statement.

"Equipped with the state-of-the-art navigation system, unique trajectory, and maneuverable features, Fatah-II is capable of engaging targets with high precision," the ISPR added.

The rocket system is being inducted in Pakistan's artillery divisions for stand-off, precision engagement of deep targets, the statement said.

Fatah-II will significantly upgrade the reach and lethality of the Pakistan Army's conventional arsenal, it said.
