TEHRAN--Iran's state radio says the country's navy has test-fired a sea-to-sea missile during a six-day naval maneuver in the Sea of Oman.
Sunday's report quotes the maneuver's spokesman, Adm. Ghasem Rostamabadi. He said the midrange missile was launched from a battleship late Saturday in the waters off the port town of Chabahar near the Iran-Pakistan border.
The report did not elaborate on the range or give other details about the missile, dubbed Nasr-2 or Victory-2.
Iran said last week that it launched the large-scale naval maneuver that was to cover 50,000 square miles of Iranian territorial waters and involve about 60 warships.
Iran regularly holds war games in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman.
