Tehran, Iran, Apr. 04 – Iran successfully test-fired a land-to-sea missile on Tuesday during naval exercises in the Persian Gulf, the state-owned news agency Mehr reported.

The SL-10 missile, which targets warships and have to be mounted on a surface, can be fired both from coastlines and ships, the report said.

Meanwhile, state television reported that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps had successfully fired a land-to-sea missile called the Kowthar in the Persian Gulf.

It said that the Kowthar missile could strike short and medium-range targets and used sophisticated technology to prevent any form of electronic interference from jamming its targeting mechanism.

The report said that the missile could strike targets at 5km, 25km, and 50km distances. It was unclear whether the Kowthar was a name for the SL-10 missile.

Earlier in the day, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps successfully test-fired a shoulder-launched rocket during the fifth day of weeklong military manoeuvres in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman.

“The advanced shoulder-launched rocket ‘Mithaq 1’ – which can be carried by IRGC fast ships and used on shore and on islands – was successfully test-fired”, the spokesman for the war-games, Mohammad-Ibrahim Dehghani, told the state-run news agency Fars.

Tuesday’s naval manoeuvres took place in the presence of the Supreme Commander of the IRGC, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi.
