A cruise missile was launched from an Iranian submarine on Tuesday but did not go very far, according to a report on Fox News, who was informed by two U.S. officials. The test was deemed a failure when an Iranian Yono-class “midget” submarine (which only Iran and North Korea operate) made the attempt in the Strait of Hormuz.
Back in February, Iran announced that they successfully tested a missile launched from a submarine. And with sanctions being lifting by the Obama administration, the terror-laden country’s defense budget has increased 145 percent under the rule of President Hassan Rouhani.
