Iran Touts 'World's Fastest' Underwater Missile

  • VOA News

Iran says it has successfully test-fired a high-speed underwater missile capable of destroying large warships and submarines.

Iranian military authorities say the missile can reach speeds of 360 kilometers an hour, about four times the speed of a torpedo.

The missile has approximately the same speed capabilities as a Russian-made underwater projectile. However, it is not clear whether the Iranian missile is based on the Russian (VA-111) Shkval model.

Iran says it tested the missile on Sunday during the third day of large-scale military maneuvers in the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea.

Friday, Iran said it test-fired an airborne missile that can evade radar and hit several targets simultaneously with multiple warheads. No other details were disclosed.
