Iran: Underwater Missile Test Completed

Monday, April 03, 2006
Iran has test-fired a sonar-evading underwater missile that can outpace any enemy warship, the Washington Post reported. Iran earlier in the war games said it tested a radar-evading missile. Iran has a commanding position over the Strait of Hormuz at the entrance to the Gulf, a shipping route through which passes some two-fifths of all the oil traded in the world. Iran officials claim to possess a missile which goes as fast as 100 meters per second and that the boats that can launch this missile have a technology that makes them stealthy and undetectable. State television described the missile as the world's fastest. It also showed images of the weapon being fired from what appeared to be the deck of a ship, followed by the weapon traveling at speed through water. The test was part of a week of Iranian naval maneuvers that started on March 31 and taking place in the Gulf and Sea of Oman. The official IRNA news agency said the maneuvers were to show Iran's defensive capabilities. (Source: Washington Post)
