Iran test-fired a sub-to-surface missile on Sunday in the Persian Gulf during the ongoing massive military maneuver, the Iranian state television reported.
"Our army has successfully test-fired a top speed long-range sub-to-surface missile off the Persian Gulf," Iranian army's Navy commander, Gen. Sajjad Kouchaki, declared on the television.
"The destructive Sagheb missile was successfully fired from a submarine, but actually it can be carried on other navy vessels," he added.
According to the video report, the missile was launched from a submarine and hit the planned target on the surface of the water within a kilometer.
Meanwhile, the general disclosed that Iran made the missile based on its own knowledge and technology.
The missile test was just a part of Iran's huge-scale war games which were being carried out around the country. Iran has tested some other weapons in the past ten days, including ten short-range surface to surface missiles and a kind of anti-aircraft equipment called "air mine system".
The Iranian army launched the large-scale military exercise since Aug. 19 and will continue for about five weeks. The new military exercise came when Tehran is facing heightened pressure as a UN Security Council resolution urges it to halt uranium enrichment by Aug. 31.
In April, Iran launched another large-scale military exercise, the biggest in several years.
During the game, Iran said that it had tested advanced weapons including missiles and torpedoes.
