The Velayat 90 maneuvers are being carried out by Iran in a large area from the Strait of Hormuz to the Gulf of Aden. The 10-day naval war games which ended today had started on December 24, 2011.

Iran successfully test-fired a new domestically manufactured coast-to-sea long-range missile, named the Qader (Capable), on Monday during the power stage of war games. The Qader cruise missile has a range of 200 kilometers and flies at a low altitude. It has a high destruction power and can target destroyers and battleships.

A short-range Nasr (Victory) cruise missile, which is fired from the seashore and has the capability to destroy large vessels, was also fired during the maneuvers on Monday and successfully hit the mock target.
