Iran tests another missile

Iran says it has successfully tested a 'top secret' missile, the third within a week.

    Iran has been on a missile testing spree since Friday

    State-run television on Wednesday called the missile an "ultra-horizon" weapon and said it could be fired from all military helicopters and jet fighters. A brief video clip showed the missile, fired from a helicopter, hitting a surface target on water.

    Iran has been holding 

    war games off its coast since Friday.

    The television

    said the new missile does not require the OTHT (over the horizon targeting) system that other missiles need to maximise their range.

    Iran is the first country to develop such a missile, it said.

    Wednesday's test follows that of two other missiles and two torpedoes since Friday.

    Iran said the Fajr-3, a missile it tested on Friday, can avoid radars and hit several targets simultaneously using multiple warheads.

    On Tuesday it tested a second "radar-avoiding" surface-to-sea missile designed to sink ships.
