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.

Yep. I guess Iran has developed "stealth sails" you just can't see on a dhow. Or, someone's been really doing some work in dhow development.

S.P.E.C.T.R.E. perhaps????
