On Wednesday, Iran tested domestically-designed anti-ship missiles as part of annual large-scale military exercises in the Persian Gulf.
Iranian media revealed that two Khalij Fars missiles were launched from a military base near the Strait of Hormuz, which hit their designated targets accurately.
The Khalij Fars is a single-stage solid-propellant, anti-ship ballistic missile with a range of 300 kilometers based on the Fateh-110 missile. The 10-day Great Prophet 6 land-and-sea war games of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard started on June 27. Last Tuesday, Iran also tested Zelzal missiles, two Shahab-1 missiles, two Shahab-2s and one upgraded Shahab-3 missile, while the next day tested new radar.
