The missile designed for sea targets was put on display at a ''defence marine show'' inaugurated by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

DUBAI (PTI): Iran on Tuesday unveiled a new cruise missile which it said has the capability to strike at warships at a range of 200 kms, including US bases in the Persian Gulf region.

The missile designed for sea targets was put on display at a ''defence marine show'' inaugurated by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iranian TV reported.

The missile called "Qader" (Able) is built indigenously by Iranian scientists and has a high destructive ability against coastal targets and warships, the state run TV said.

It said that Ahmadinejad also made public a new torpedo system called "Valfair", fired from submarine. Both the weapon systems were tested successfully.

Iran now claims, it has an array of short and medium range ballistic missile capable of reaching targets at almost every end of the strategic Persian Gulf, including US bases of the region.

Cruising at a low height with high precision in acquiring its targets are among other features of the relatively lightweight Qader missile, it said.

Iran''s Defence Ministry manufactured Bonyan 1 marine engine to provide the country''s naval forces with the strategic product.

The torpedo is one of the most complicated marine weapons, which plays a key role in promoting Iran''s naval capabilities and the efficiency of vessels and submarines.

In January, Iran''s Defence Ministry delivered new cruise missile systems to the Navy, which are capable of spotting and destroying various targets at sea.
