Tehran, Nov 12, IRNA — Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Brigadier General Hossein Salami underlined that the martyred head of the IRGC Missile Research Center General Hassan Tehrani Moqaddam revolutionized the IRGC’s missile systems.
He pointed to the role played by the late commander and head of the IRGC Missile Research Center, Martyr Major General Tehrani Moqaddam, in the designing and production of high-precision ballistic missiles, and said, “Due to such attempts the precision of Iran’s ballistic missiles has approached (a) zero (margin of error) and our ballistic missiles target moving vessels on the sea and they operate against (enemiesˈ) command and control centers.”
“Martyr Tehrani Moqaddam led us to self-sufficiency in area of ground-to-ground missiles and his ideas resulted in the development of an innovative missile power for Iran,” he added.
In July 2012, Iranˈs Persian Gulf missiles displayed their 100 percent precision capability after hitting and destroying the specified targets in the last phase of the Payambar-e Azam 7 (The Great Prophet 7) drills.
ˈThe Persian Gulf missile precisely hit and destroyed the target which was several times smaller than the marine targets which can pose a threat,ˈ Commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force said at the end of the last phase of the wargames on July 4, 2012.
