Tehran, YJC. As a series of large-scale military drills in south and southeast of Iran continued for the 5th day, Iran launches two cruise radar-evading missiles targeting naval objects launched from a coast-to-sea missile system.

The public relations department of the Iranian Army stated on Monday that the Navy has launched the Nour (Light) and Nasr (Triumph) coast-to-sea missiles which had been mounted on the indigenous Velayat missile system, The launchers were stationed along the coasts of Makran, located at southeastern coastal regions of the country.

Enjoying extended effective ranges each, the high-precision missiles are equipped with upgraded interception gear as well as domestically-made radar-evading systems.

Nasr is said to be a short-range missile capable of detonating targets weighing as much as 3,000 tons.

Despite the fact that it had been designed and mass-produced originally as an anti-ship cruise missile, Iran mounted an air-launched version of the Nasr (Victory) on helicopters in February, 2014.
