This is not the first time, is it? I have seen it before. Is there something new now or just the old news?

You may be confusing this with 2017 Pakistan Day parade when a mock-up of RAAD-2 was paraded but it was an inaccurate and approximate representation.
This is the first time the missile being shown and range revealed.

Guys how easy is it to integrate the missile on the F-15 & F-16? We have some experience in this as we integrated South Korean made missile into our F-15s.

F-15???
It's a huge plane and can carry pretty much anything.

Pakistan was facing difficulty in integrating Raad ALCM on JF-17 as the jet is small .
That's why only used from Mirages

The horizontal stabilizer at the rear of the missile was the problem as it's too wide , non-folding and came in the way of JF-17 landing gear stowing mechanism.

With these rear horizontal stabilizers removes and Storm shadow / SCALP style X shaped wings added, that problem is solved. But we have yet to see this missile on a JF-17.

A perfect SCALP / Storm Shadow knock off .. Only with 200 Km additional range.
India will buy SCALP with Rafale deal, but those are only with 400 Km Range and no Anti Ship Ca[abilities.
Here Pakistan already made a SCALP lookalike at home with extra range and additional anti Ship capabilities
