Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 25 / Trend, T. Jafarov, S. Isayev
Iran presented new, domestically made air-launch type anti-ship and anti-aircraft missiles "Qader" and "Nasr", IRIB News reported.
The ceremony took place in presence of Iranian defense minister Hossein Deghan, who said that such missiles are manufactured in Iran for the first time.
He went on to note that "Qader" missiles are capable of hitting enemy aircrafts within the 200 km range, while Nasr missiles have a 35 km range.
According to Deghan, the main importance of these missiles is that they have a very short readiness time, and are able to hit targets on low altitude, while maintaining high target-hitting accuracy.
Several days ago Iran showcased 18 ballistic missiles "Qader F" and 12 missiles "Sacil", whose range can reach up to 2 thousand km, at the annual military parade.
According to the report, Iran fro the first time demonstrated such large missile arsenal, as during previous military parades, usually only 2-3 missiles were demonstrated.
