    Indian Defence News - Iran test-fires ballistic missile

    April 17, 2013

    Moscow : Iran has successfully test-fired a medium range shore-to-sea ballistic missile in the Persian Gulf, a minister said.

    According to Iran's Press TV, Deputy Defense minister Majid Bokaei, however, provided no details of the flight range, the missile specifications or the time of the test.

    Last week, Iran successfully test-fired three new surface-to-surface domestically produced missiles, the Fars news agency reported.

    Iran test-fired the Naze'at 10 and Fajr 5 during a military exercise in March. The Fajr-5 is a long-range artillery rocket with a maximum range of 75 km, while Naze'at-10 is a medium-range ballistic missile capable of hitting targets within a radius of 100-300 km.

    Iranian officials and commanders have repeatedly stressed that all tests and training of the Iranian armed forces are only for deterrent and self-defense purposes.

    On Feb 10, Iran successfully tested the Fakour air-to-air missile and Dec 31, 2012 the Ra'd (Thunder) surface-to-air missile, Press TV reported.

    In July, Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi announced progress in the development and manufacture of an indigenous version of the advanced Russian S-300 air defence missile system.

    Iranian military officials said the missile system, called Bavar (Belief) 373, is more powerful and advanced than the Russian S-300.

    An $800 million contract to supply Iran with the Russian missile system was signed in late 2007, under which Russia was to deliver five S-300PMU-1 battalions to Tehran.

    However, Sep 22, 2010, Russia's then president Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree terminating the contract in line with UN Security Council Resolution 1929, which bans the supply to Iran of conventional weapons including missiles and missile systems, tanks, attack helicopters, warplanes and ships.

    Everyone is just so bored I suppose.
    but what will be the motive of these launches(if any) from a strategic point of view taking it into account the current global affairs?

    YAWN... Not interested. They've been saying they're going to wipe out the Jews for half a decade now, and it's still not happening.

    Yes, indeed, I don't agree with Israeli settlement policies...but there is much about Jewish tenacity that one must respect.
