TEHRAN (BNS): Iran has deployed a new state-of-the-art anti-ship cruise missile system onboard its destroyers and warships to reinforce defence measures in its territories and waters, the Navy Chief has said.

"The Ghadir cruise missiles have been mounted on both Navy destroyers and missile-launching warships and they are also used as coast-to-sea missiles," Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari was quoted as saying by the FARS news agency on Monday.

The surface-to-surface missiles have already been delivered to the Navy and they would also be used for coastal defence purposes, the Commander said.

The new missile has a longer range, higher precision and more destructive power over its predecessors -- the "ultra-modern" Nour and Qader missile systems, he added.

The missile has a reported range of 200-km.
