The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has equipped its speed boats with the home-made long-range Qader cruise missiles, a senior commander announced on Monday.

“Qader cruise missiles have been mounted on IRGC Navy’s speed vessels,” Lieutenant Commander of the IRGC Navy General Alireza Tangsiri told FNA.

In September 2011, Iran unveiled its 200-km range Qader anti-ship cruise missile with a high-precision striking capability and the Iranian defense industries have mass-produced the powerful missile.
