Navy Test-Fires New Torpedo

The newest torpedo to join the Iranian Navy’s arsenal was successfully test-fired on Tuesday, as the force wrapped up its large-scale drills spanning over territorial and international waters.
Tuesday marked the last day of the final phase of the maneuvers codenamed Velayat 95, which have been underway since early February across the Strait of Hormuz, Sea of Oman and the northern part of the Indian Ocean.
The Valfajr torpedo was fired from the Navy’s Qadir submarine toward a surface vessel, destroying its target, Press TV reported. Similar simulated tasks of target location and destruction were performed by other submarines dispatched to within 100 kilometers of the country’s southern coast. Separately, anti-submarine helicopters belonging to naval defense squadrons, which serve the Navy’s strategic operations, practiced patrolling missions, hitting and destroying sub-surface targets. Another chopper, equipped with rocket and machinegun firepower, trained and opened fire on floating targets. Different types of drones provided surveillance and reconnaissance services to naval units during the final stage of the drills that began on Sunday.
