I think we need a shop shoop to confirm that.

Not surface to air...that implies a missile whose target is an aircraft or another missile. If the target is on the ground, say for example, oh..Tel Aviv, then it's a surface to surface missile...or more accurately a ballistic missile.

Regardless, we can deal with it:

How do you "test" fire a missile?? Once those puppies leave the pad, they're done. Or maybe Pres. Ahmadumbguy catches them and says, "That one worked. Set 'er up again!".

Instruments instead of a warhead. See if it hits where you wanted it to.

Much like calculating load limits on bridges. Build the bridge and drive increasingly heavier loads across the bridge until it collapses, then rebuild the bridge.

FTFA, "The Iranian military Wednesday test-fired surface-to-air missiles designed for defensive purposes, the country's state-sanctioned media reported.
The test-firing involved the next-generation missile called the Sejil and used solid-fuel propellants..."

This would be a next-gen SAM.

Wait, so they put out the news with the photoshopped pic expecting people to believe they had that many missiles?

Further research into the event indicates the article is incorrect. It is, in fact, a surface to surface ballistic missile with medium to long range, 2-stage, solid fuel, Shahab 3 variant.
