Iran unveils missiles, drones
Iran Sunday unveiled two missiles and two drones at a ceremony attended by President Hassan Rouhani.
The Qadir (almighty) missile, with a range of 300 km, will be used for destroying marine targets, Xinhua reported.
It can either be launched from sea vessels or by other missile systems.
The Nasr-e-Basir (astute victory) cruise missile carries a searching head, and operates silently.
Iran also launched two drones named Karrar 4 (striker) and Mohajer 4 (immigrant).
Karrar 4 is an interceptor of flying objects and Mohajer 4 provides aerial maps for military and civilian purposes.
In June, Iran unveiled a long-range radar system to enhance its air defence. The radar system, also dubbed Qadir, had a range of about 1,100 km and it can monitor its surrounding radius round the clock and detect small three dimensional (3D) targets.
