The Iranian Defense Ministry released this photo of what it says are Nasr 1 (Victory) missiles in a factory in Tehran, Iran, on March 7. On state television, Gen. Ahmad Vahidi announced a new production line of highly accurate, short-range cruise missiles capable of evading radar. Gen. Vahidi said the missile named Nasr 1 (Victory) will be capable of destroying targets up to 1,000 tons in size. Iran frequently makes announcements about new advances in military technology that cannot be independently verified.
