Ok i know there is another thread regarding it but people didn't have enough information on it i will post. It is in the same category as Shahab-3 and it puts Israel and US bases/troops with in range and the missiles name is Fajr-3 which infact is another name of our missile sold to hezbullah. The missiles which reports that it can hit several targets at once. Iran is definatley one of the best country in the world for missile technology and theres no doubt in that.

TEHRAN, Iran Iran claims it has successfully test-fired what it's air force chief is calling a "near-stealth" missile.

General Hossein Salami says the missile can hit several targets at the same time with pinpoint accuracy. He says it's highly maneuverable and can avoid radar.

Appearing on state-run television, the Iranian general says the missile debuted during war games in the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea.

Iranian television describes it as a ballistic missile. That would put it in the same category as Iran's Shahab-three, which has a 12-hundred-50-mile range, putting U-S Middle East bases and Israel in its reach.

It also appears capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. Iran has dubbed it "Victory."

TEHRAN, March 31 (RIA Novosti) - Iran successfully tested a new Fajr-3 ballistic missile Friday, local television reported, citing military sources.

Iranian television said the rocket is versatile and also invisible to radar.

Earlier in the day Iran began large-scale navy exercises in the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, a strait connecting the Islamic Republic to the Arabian Sea. The training exercises will continue through April 6 and involve over 17,000 servicemen.

During the maneuvers, around 1500 military vessels, planes, helicopters and missile launch systems will be used.

TEHRAN, Iran-- Iran on Friday successfully test-fired a missile that can avoid radar and hit several targets simultaneously, the airforce chief of the elite Revolutionary Guards said.

"Today, a remarkable goal of the Islamic Republic of Iran's defence forces was realized with the successful test-firing of a new missile with greater technical and tactical capabilities than those previously produced," Gen. Hossein Salami said on state-run television.

Salami said the Iranian-made missile, which he did not name, was test-fired as large military maneuvers began in the Persian Gulf and the Arabian sea.

"This missile can simultaneously hit several targets, has near stealth capabilities with a high maneuverability, pinpoint accuracy and radar avoidance features," Salami said.

it says near stealth it probably is just facteded like eurpoeana nd russian cruise missiles. Still deadly though and by the way we have those too they're cruise missiles but stealthy and carry nuclear warheads.

Wow, you're right Mehran. There's no doubt that Iran is one of the best. Thanks again for another wonderful post.
