Iran’s navy successfully fired surface-to-surface Noor cruise missiles during Velayat-94 drill which managed to completely destroy the intended targets.
Iranian Navy Deputy Commander Rear Admiral Seyed Mahmoud Mousavi said Friday Noor missiles with their recent upgraded precision and range have been launched from coast to pre-determined targets and successfully hit them on the third day of large-scale naval drills currently underway in eastern part of Hormuz Strait, Sea of Oman, northern Indian Ocean and 10th Parallel north.
The speaker for Velayat-94 drills added that the navy vessel units that had been located at the general area of the war game, fired on Friday their anti-aircraft cannons and weapons in order to destroy enemy air and surface targets.
“Despite the enemy’s electronic hostile actions against the Iranian navy’s missile systems, no disturbance was caused in the launching of the planned missiles and all missiles completed the test-fire successfully,” he said.
Meanwhile, Iranian navy commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said the firing of Noor cruise missile will make the heart of any adversary tremble in fear, adding “Iran’s strategic marine force with all missile capabilities acquired will not allow any threatening element to trespass into our coastal and territorial waters.”
“We will protect the Islamic Republic’s interests in open seas with full power,” he stressed.
According to Sayyari, Noor is a coast-to-sea and sea-to-sea cruise missile with a range of 150 km, and enjoys high precision and speed and is capable of completely destroying the predetermined targets.
