A senior Iranian commander says Iran’s Navy is planning to test fire its advanced missiles and intelligent torpedoes during the Velayat 90 naval drill.
“Advanced short, medium and long-range missiles, and also intelligent torpedoes of the Iran’s Navy will be test fired during the next days of the drill,” Admiral Rastegari said on Wednesday.
Rastegari said until now Iran has used real vessels for testing torpedoes, but “the Navy has designed a system that has all the characteristics of a torpedo test target.”
The Iranian commander said the system is smaller than a real vessel, but emits frequencies similar to those of a real target.
