Tehran, Iran, Apr. 05 – Iranian state television reported on Wednesday that Tehran had successfully test-fired a new long-range cruise missile in the Persian Gulf.

Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, deputy commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps navy, told state television that the cruise missile was successfully fired from a military helicopter for the first time.

Fadavi said that the new missile had a range of 200 km and could move very close to its target before it risked being spotted.

Previously, the long-range missile could only be fired from warships, he added.

The state-run news agency Fars reported that Iran was the country to be able to install the missile on a helicopter. It said that the missile was called “Nour”, or light.

It reported that the Nour missile could achieve its maximum range without the need for an OTHT (Over-The-Horizon Targeting) system.

The IRGC has been conducting naval war-games in the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman for all of this week.
