Iran: New missiles being mass-produced

TEHRAN, Iran - Iran said Wednesday it has begun large-scale production of a domestically-developed cruise missile designed for sea-based targets and capable of destroying warships.
Defense Minister Gen. Ahmad Vahidi said an unspecified number of the missiles, called "Ghader," or "Capable" in Farsi, were delivered to the Iranian military and the powerful Revolutionary Guard's naval division, which is assigned to protect Iran's sea borders.     picture released by the official website of the Iranian president's office shows Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivering a speech next to a Ghader (Capable) missile, a marine-cruise missile with a 124 mile range, during a ceremony to mark Iran's annual "Defense Industry Day" in Tehran, Aug. 23, 2011. (AFP/Getty)
