Iran state television, referring to it as a long-range missile that evades radar, reported its successful test launch from a submarine in the Persian Gulf on August 27, 2006.[2] The Islamic Republic News Agency reported that the test launch involved the destruction of a target on the water surface a mile away from the submarine.[3] The test was part of the Blow of Zolfaqar military exercises which began across the country August 19, and are expected to last five weeks.
