The Iran for the first time displayed to the public its recently developed super torpedo, “Hout”, which enjoys the state-of-the-art technologies and is capable of hitting targets in and outside water.

The torpedo was unveiled in an exhibition in Tehran on Saturday on the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy’s latest achievements, said Fars news agency.

IRGC officials had announced in May 2014 that the IRGC Navy is one of the only two world military forces equipped with the unique torpedo which moves with unbelievable velocity. The other military force is the Russian army.

Speaking to FNA, IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said when the home-made missile/torpedo, Hout, was displayed in a series of wargames a few years ago, over 2,000 world media covered the news.

He said the speed of the torpedo is 100 meters per second (360km/h) under water.
