Iran’s armed forces has test-fired a new anti-ship ballistic missile in the Persian Gulf waters, Deputy Defense Minister Brigadier General Majid Bokaei said on Tuesday.
According to Bokaei, the projectile can pinpoint targets at sea with high precision, the IRNA News Agency reported.
He also noted that once fired, the missile leaves the atmosphere, and hits enemy warships on return.
All enemy vessels left the area near Iran’s maritime border, after the missile was tested, Bokaei added.
The official went on to say that the new projectile is a modified version of a ground-to-ground missile.
