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.
