The Nasr-1 is an Iranian unlicensed copy of the Chinese C-704[1][2] short range anti ship missile.[3] According to its export catalog, it can destroy 1,500-tonne[3] targets such as small frigates. Nasr-1 missile can be launched from both inland bases and offshore military vessels, and is being modified to be fired from helicopters and submarines.

The missile has a cigarette shaped body with four large foldable fins attached to the middle part and four smaller ones attached to the end of the missile near the exhaust.[3]

In December 2008, an Iranian naval force successfully test-fired the surface-to-surface Nasr-1 during the final stage of "Unity 87" wargames in the Persian Gulf waters. Following the successful test firing, on 7 March 2010, Iran's defence minister announced mass-production of Nasr-1 missiles.[4][5][6]

In early 2012, during Velayet-e 90 wargames, it was tested from land-based TELs.[7] On 10 February 2013, The head of Iran Aviation Industries Organization announced that an air-launched version of Qader and Nasr-1 anti-ship cruise missiles will be tested in a week.[8]
