Iran's IRGC to test supersonic missiles at sea: commander
TEHRAN, July 4 (Xinhua) -- The Aerospace Commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said Iran plans to test-fire new "supersonic surface-to-sea missiles" as part of its war games in the Persian Gulf in the coming days, the English language satellite Press TV reported on Monday.
Hajizadeh said that the new missiles have been designed to target ships and forces at sea, said the report.
"Last year, we achieved (the technology of) new anti-ship missiles that can hit targets with multiple speed of sound," he was quoted as saying.
The upgraded missiles will soon be used in the naval phase of the IRGC's ongoing Great Prophet 6 missile drills.

Supplying the IRGC forces with advanced equipment was aimed at increasing "Iran's defensive and deterrence power" in order to " maintain the stable security of the strategic area of the Persian Gulf," Razmjou was quoted as saying by Press TV.
