Iran answers U.S. Gulf buildup with test of SSN4 anti-ship missile

Iran's military tested an anti-ship missile in the Gulf as a massive U.S. naval build-up is underway.

Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said it fired missiles designed to destroy large enemy naval vessels. The missiles were identified as the SSN4. Fadavi termed the SSN4 a strategic anti-ship cruise missile, saying it was capable of destroying Western cruisers. He said the SSN4, with a 500-kilogram warhead, could withstand electronic counter-measures.
