The Nasr-1 Is a domestically-manufactured Iranian short range anti ship missile[1] capable of evading radar. It has the capability of destroying 1,500-tonne[1] targets such as small warships like frigates. Nasr-1 missile can be launched from both inland bases and offshore military vessels, and is being modified to be fired from helicopters and submarines.

The missile has a cigarette shaped body with four large foldable fins attached to the middle part and four smaller ones attached to the end of the missile near the exhaust.[1]

In December 2008, an Iranian naval force successfully test-fired the surface-to-surface Nasr-1 during the final stage of "Unity 87" wargames in the Persian Gulf waters. Following the successful test firing, on 7 March 2010, Iran's defence minister announced a mass-production line of Nasr-1 missiles.[2][3][4]

In early 2012, during Velayet-e 90 wargames, it was tested from land-based TELs.[5] On 10 February 2013, The head of Iran Aviation Industries Organization announced that an air-launched version of Qader and Nasr-1 anti-ship cruise missiles will be tested in a week.[6]
