Iran's navy has test-fired the latest versions of the Nasr and Dehlaviyeh missiles during military exercises in the Gulf.

"The latest naval cruise missile called Nasr was test-fired during Velayat 95 naval manoeuvres in the southern waters of the country," said Defence Minister Hossein Dehghan.

The missile had successfully hit its target, Dehghan was quoted as saying by various local media today.

The drills involve the Iranian Navy’s surface ships and submarines, naval aviation, including helicopters, reconnaissance aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles, and also amphibious assault and Special Forces units.

The forces used domestically-built Ra’ad boats, mounted with SPG-9 73-millimeter caliber guns, and Azarakhsh boats, fitted with 122-millimeter caliber rocket launchers.
