[Video] Iranian F-4 Phantom testing Qader air-to-surface missile

On Sept. 25, Iran unveiled two new domestically produced air-to-surface missiles: the Qader and Nasr.

The following interesting video shows the testing activity conducted by an Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force F-4 Phantom with the new missile. Including a successful hit.
