TEHRAN – Iran’s navy has test-fired the latest versions of the Nasir and Dehlaviyeh missiles during military exercises in the Gulf, local media reported on Monday.
“The latest naval cruise missile called Nasir was test-fired during Velayat 95 naval manoeuvres in the southern waters of the country,” said Defence Minister Hossein Dehghan, according to the Fars news agency, adding that the missile had successfully hit its target.
PakistanTribe’s world desk reported while quoting to Iran’s Tasnim news agency that Dehlaviyeh, a laser-guided missile, had also been successfully tested.
It was reported back in 2012 that Iran had based the Dehlaviyeh on a Russian anti-tank missile.
The ranges of the latest versions were not given.
