Ali Reza Tangsiri, spokesman for the exercise. "Since the boat has high speed, it is less detectable by radar."
Ali Shirazi, a senior aide to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, described the naval exercises as a specific response to Washington's "nuclear threats."
He said: "The most important message from the exercises in the face of American nuclear threats is that we will strongly resist them."
The new vessel was tested in the Strait of Hormuz, the narrow, strategically important waterway between the Gulf and the Gulf of Oman. Nearly 40 percent of world's seaborne oil shipments pass through this waterway.
Iranian military officials have previously warned that if their country were attacked, their forces would hit back by blocking the Strait of Hormuz.
The military exercise also marked the 31st anniversary of the Guards, which were set up soon after the Islamic revolution of 1979.
