Iran test-fires radar-evading missiles

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps test-fired domestically-manufactured radar-evading missiles dubbed Persian Gulf and Tondar on Wednesday, July 7, targeting mock targets at sea.

The 3 missiles were fired from Jask in Hormozgan Province and successfully hit the mock targets, Tehran Times reported.

The event took place during the second and last stage of the Great Prophet Mohammad 6 war game, which began last week.

Colonel Asghar Gelichkhani said during the first stage of the war game, fixed targets on land and during the second stage, moving targets on water were hit.

During the first stage, the domestically-manufactured Ghadir radar system was tested for the first time to detect missiles fired during the war game.

Having a range of 1,100 kilometers and a height of 300 kilometers, Qadir radar system is used for detecting radar-evading aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles and low-orbit satellites.

During the second day of the first stage of the war game, which was conducted last week, 14 missiles including nine Zelzal, two Shahab 1, two Shahab 2, and one Shahab 3 were fired.
