Iran to fire Home Made Missle

Intent on continuing to become an international pain in the ass, Iran will be test firing a Home Made missle.

While this could become fodder for America's Funniest Home Videos, it shows Iran has no intentions of a peaceful nuclear program.

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Commander of the Islamic Republic navy said that his troops are due to test a missile with a range of over 150 km in the sea.

Speaking to Iran's state-run TV on Wednesday, Rear Admiral Sajjad Kouchaki further stated that the Iranian navy intends to increase its subsurface power, and continued, "If Iran possesses 50 submarines, it will find a good grip of the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman."

He also said that the mighty presence of the Iranian navy in the Persian Gulf, the Sea of Oman and north of Indian Ocean is tangible for the regional and trans-regional countries, adding that the navy force is striving to reinvigorate its subsurface forces.

Saying that Iran owns the most powerful navy in the Middle-East region, the commander reminded that 90 to 95 percent of the equipment and weapons needed by the navy are designed and manufactured through home-made technology and by the Iranian experts.

He further pointed to the production of dual-purpose torpedoes and test firing of a fast radar-evading missile as among other achievements of the Iranian navy, adding that during future war games, an optimized missile with a range of over 150 km will be test fired.

The Admiral also reminded that the said missile will increase Iran's missile capability and defensive power.
