When Iran has reached a very advanced stage in its military nuclear program , it test launched a ballistic missile from a navy ship.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said on Tuesday it has launched long-range ballistic missiles from a warship for the first time.

According to Iran International, a website operated from London by the opposition to the regime , the IRGC launched two ballistic missiles from the Shahid Mahdavi warship.

The IRGC claims that the missiles can strike targets up to 1,700 kilometers (1,050 miles) away.

“The IRGC has initiated the firing of ballistic missiles in the Gulf of Oman for the first time,” state television reported.

IRGC Chief Hossein Salami stated, “The launch of a long-range ballistic missile from the warship was executed with success.”

In a warning on Tuesday, Salami said, “In the event of a naval conflict and our ships being targeted, we will respond with equal or greater force.”

Additionally, state television reported that the IRGC conducted a simulation of a surface-to-surface ballistic missile strike on Israel’s Palmachim airbase from central Iran.
