Iran Announces New Missile Production

Ad Feedback

TEHRAN - Iran launched a new production line of short-range, radar-evading cruise missiles, according to a report on the Islamic Republic's state-controlled media.

The new production line of short-range cruise missiles, dubbed Nasr I, which means "victory," can evade radar and are highly accurate, the report stated.

According to Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi, the missiles, which will be able to destroy targets as large as 1,000 tons, will be modified so they can be launched from helicopters and submarines.

Vahidi said it has taken two years to develop the Nasr I's production line, which will strengthen Iranian naval vessels.

As with most reports coming from the Islamic Republic's state media, the latest announcement cannot be independently verified.

Since 1992, Iran has put vast amounts of its resources into developing weaponry, missiles, tanks, torpedoes and jet fighter planes.
