Moscow: The Iranian military has successfully test-fired three new domestically produced missiles, the Fars News Agency has reported.

"Three types of missiles developed by the Army and the Defence Industries have been successfully test-fired in the Ground Force's recent wargames," said Lt. Gen. Kioumars Heydari, commander of the army's Ground Forces.

The general gave no further information about the missiles, describing them only as ground-to-ground missiles that are "different from the Naze'at 10 and Fajr missiles in type".

Iran test-fired Naze'at 10 and Fajr 5 missiles during a military exercise in mid-March. The Fajr-5 is a long-range rocket artillery with a maximum range of 75 km, while Naze'at-10 is a medium-range ballistic missile, capable of hitting targets within a radius of 100-300 km.
