Iran’s naval forces have successfully tested new-generation cruise missiles — designed and developed by experts at home — during military drills in the Sea of Oman and the northern Indian Ocean.

During the maneuvers on Thursday, the long-range and short-range missiles were successfully fired from the coast and from decks of ships, hitting the designated targets with high accuracy.

The coast-to-sea and sea-to-sea missiles were produced by experts at Iran’s Ministry of Defense in cooperation with the Navy, according to the report.

At the end of the maneuvers, Deputy Chief of Army for Coordination Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari described the successful launch of new cruise missiles as a promising step toward further upliftment of the country’s defense and deterrence power.

He added that Iran will continue to march toward self-sufficiency and becoming needless of foreign military equipment despite brutal sanctions imposed on the country, adding that “successful test-firing of long-range missiles is a sign of remarkable progress in boosting synergy between the armed forces and defense industries.”

Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi also noted that production of new home-grown missiles by the Iranian experts will better equip the Islamic Republic to handle any threat against the Islamic establishment and the Iranian people while strengthening a sense of self-reliance in the Iranian Armed Forces.

  1. I suspect they are going to need them.

  2. Yep, I think the Russians helped. It’s not often that you can say new weapons saves lives but these advances make it much harder for the West to wage wars. The downside is that the West will put more effort into destabilising Iran with B-rated spies like Zaghari Ratcliffe, poor lass, may she rot in jail. Remember, she is supposed to be a mother.

  3. Men hating mankind. Just more ways to kill human beings.

  4. Ann Blue: There is only one type of anti-human who are the cause of most of the evil we are facing today. They feel, since they have accumulated wealth beyond most peoples comprehension, they should control the world and its people. Unless these people are exposed and called out, they will be successful in their pursuit of dominance and control over every living human being.
