Iran’s Defense Ministry has delivered the first batch of a newly developed air-launched cruise missile, dubbed Nasr (Victory), to the country’s Air Force.

Iran’s Aerospace Industries Organization affiliated with the Ministry of Defense on August 25, 2015 launched the production line of Nasr cruise missile in a bid to upgrade the country's deterrence.

The cruise missiles were handed over to Iran’s Air Force on Tuesday in a ceremony in the presence of Iran's Minister of Defense Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan and the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) chief, Brigadier General Hassan Shah Safi.

Dehqan said Defense Ministry experts have the capability to supply the strategic needs of the Iranian Armed Forces in different sectors.

He noted that nothing can hinder or stop the Defense Ministry’s move towards further empowering the Armed Forces.

The minister said Nasr cruise missiles are precise enough to hit targets and significantly boost the operational and tactical power of the Armed Forces.

“The Nasr air-launched system can be installed on different types of jet fighters,” the Iranian defense minister pointed out.

In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems.

The Islamic Republic also regularly conducts military drills to enhance the defense capabilities of its military and to test modern military tactics and equipment.

Iran has repeatedly said that its military might poses no threat to other countries, reiterating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
