Iran has begun to mass produce the Qader marine cruise missile, designed to target warships, frigates and coastal targets, Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi was quoted as saying by Press TV on Wednesday.

An unspecified number of the missiles, equipped with a range of 200 kilometers, were delivered to the Iranian Navy as well as to the Revolutionary Guard's naval division, the Tehran Times reported.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad originally unveiled the missile in August. Vahidi deemed the manufacture of the missile a "great achievement" for Iran and denied as "false and malicious" reports that the Qader was not truly a domestically-manufactured product.
