The test of the Iranian Fateh-110 short-range ballistic missile was carried out at the Strait of Hormuz during a naval exercise in which at least 100 small ships took part, Fox News reported. According to the report, the missiles flew “shore to shore” for more than 160 kilometers (100 miles) over the Strait of Hormuz to a site in the desert.
While the US military knew of Iran’s naval activity in the region, the missile test detected by US spy satellites had not been previously reported.
The missile launch test is the first known test of the Fateh-110 in over a year. Last time such a missile was launched by Iran was in March, 2017.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps announced last weekend it had completed a “successful” naval exercise in the Persian Gulf, which was seen in the West as a provocation in response to the US reimposition of sanctions on Tehran.

Since the situation is tense, the efforts should be concentrated on fielded weapons and those that are about to get ready. Iran needs weapons that serve as deterrent. Investing into new systems would diminish resources of the proven projects.

If equipped with new age napalm or FAE warheads to target reservoirs, lines and ESP's than Saudi production will be cut by more than 50 % . IRGC can literally cripple Saudis from Yemen. MIM-104 has yet to hit separated RV of a SS-1 let alone Zolfaghar.

The oil is within. But Zelzals armed with cluster warheads, dropping on Saudi oil infrastructure... now that would be quite something. Could brew a firestorm, fueled by their own oil.
