Iran Defiantly Touts Domestic 'New Generation Cruise Missiles' In Naval Drills Near Gulf

Amid crushing US sanctions aimed at strangling its defense, aviation and nuclear development sectors, Iran is increasingly focused on ramping up high tech domestic missile defense production.

Ultimately it hopes to showcase its domestic military wares to signal the West that sanctions aren't working. In its latest test Iran's Navy displayed the abilities of newly developed land-to-sea and sea-to-sea cruise missiles.

The drills were conducted in the Sea of Oman and Indian Ocean this week, and involved live-fire tests against targets nearly 300km away, which Iranian media said were successful.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know if I would characterize this test as "defiant" (and there are moments when I have to wonder how much the collective writers using the "nom de plume" Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com have invested in defense stocks; this is not a criticism, just an occasional observation).

I would, rather, characterize this test as an expression of "If you won't let us buy it, we'll make it ourselves!"
