Tehran, Iran, Apr. 02 – The following is footage aired on Iranian state television of a new underwater missile developed by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

A senior commander in the IRGC claimed on Sunday that the Islamic Republic had developed the world’s “fastest underwater missile” which could destroy both battleships and submarines.

“The fastest underwater missile in today’s world was successfully tested in the military exercises codenamed Great Prophet”, deputy commander of the IRGC Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi told state television, referring to week-long naval war games in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman which began on Friday by Iran’s armed forces.

“The speed of this missile called ‘Hout’ is 100 metres per second and no ship can escape it”, Fadavi said, adding that the maximum speed of conventional underwater missiles was 25 metres per second. State television aired clips of the missile as it was being fired and moving in the water.

“Currently, only two countries in the world are equipped with such a missile”, he said.

“Ships that can fire the Hout missile are radar-proof and cannot be identified”, he added.

The missiles are also designed to evade sonar detection, Fadavi claimed.

On Friday, another top commander in the IRGC claimed that Iran had successfully fired its first stealth air missile.
