EHRAN, Iran - Iran on Sunday test-fired a surface-to-surface short-range missile a day after its army launched large-scale military exercises throughout the country, state-run television reported.

"Saegheh, the missile, has a range of between 80 to 250 kilometers (50 to 150 miles)," the report said. It said the missile was tested in Kashan desert, about 150 miles southeast of Tehran, the capital.

Saegheh means lightning in Farsi.

... State-run TV showed video showing 10 missiles being launched from mobile launching pads.

5. Reuters: Iran army tests missiles in wargames
Iran army tests missiles in wargames

Aug 20, 2006 TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's army has fired tactical
missiles and will test surface-to-sea missiles during Iranian army
wargames on Sunday, state television reported.

Iran's army launched wargames in the south of the country on Saturday,
and said new, Iranian-built equipment would be tested. It did not say
how long the wargames will last.

Tactical surface-to-surface Iranian-made Saeqa (Thunderbolt) missiles,
with a range of 80-250 km (50-160 miles), were tested on Sunday,
state television reported.

-snip-

Analysts interpreted those wargames as a thinly veiled threat that Iran
could disrupt vital oil shipping lanes if pushed by an escalation
in the nuclear dispute.
