TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's official news agency says the country has produced a new generation of short-range marine missiles and aerial drones.
The IRNA report on Sunday says the Ghadir missile, with a range of 100 kilometers (62 miles), is capable of destroying marine targets. It did not give a range for the Nasr-e Basir cruise missile, but said it could "operate in silence," without elaborating.
IRNA also says Iran has unveiled two new drones, the high-altitude Karrar-4 and the Mohajer-4 drone, which can be used to generate maps for both military and civilian purposes.
Iran launched a homegrown defense industry in 1992 that produces light and heavy weapons.
