Iran says it has equipped its naval forces with a domestically-developed cruise missile designed for sea-based targets and capable of destroying warships.
Defense Minister General Ahmad Vahidi said a number of short range "Ghader" ("Capable") missiles had been delivered to the Revolutionary Guard's navy, assigned to protect Iran's sea borders.
Vahidi said the cruise missile has a range of 200 kilometers and can travel at low altitudes. He added that it could be fired from the coast or from vessels.
