DM: Iran's Cruise Missiles Protect Country against Every Threat

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said Iran enjoys the necessary capability to give a crushing response to any possible enemy threat, thanks to its high cruise missile capability.



"Our cruise missiles can completely respond to any kind of threat," Vahidi told FNA on Saturday, stressing that Iran's "Nasr, Qader, Nour, Zafar and Fateh anti-ship cruise missiles can hit every enemy target" with high precision and power.

Vahidi pointed to the different types of missiles displayed during the nationwide parades on the occasion of the Sacred Defense Week late in September, and noted that Iran "feels no shortage in missile fields".

Nasr cruise missiles are a sea-to-sea cruise missile with high destructive capability and targeting power.

Zafar (Triumph) is a short-range, anti-ship, radar guided missile capable of hitting and destroying small and medium-sized targets with high precision.

The missile can be mounted onto light and speed boats, enjoys a high capability in anti-electronic warfare and is highly destructive.

The anti-ship missile, called Nour (Light), is a long-range cruise missile manufactured by Iran and has already been mounted on several military gears.

Iran successfully test-fired the third generation of Fateh-110 missiles in August 2010.

The Fateh-110 is a short-range, road-mobile, solid-propellant, high-precision ballistic missile with advanced navigation and control systems.

Iran's latest cruise missile production, Qader (Mighty), was displayed to the public during the military parades marking the Week of Sacred Defense in September.
