Speaking on the occasion, he paid tribute to scientists and engineers for indigenously developing A- 100 rocket which shall augment the existing conventional firepower capabilities of Pakistan Army.

The COAS emphasised Pakistan Army’s resolve to strengthen conventional forces to meet the challenges of full-spectrum threat.

He said that Pakistan’s defence industry had maintained steady progress in recent times and had contributed to the defence of the motherland.
