Iran to unveil new missile systems: Commander

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of Iran’s Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili highlighted the country’s latest achievements in the area of air defense, saying that a series of new missile systems will become operational in a few months.

A series of new domestically-built missile systems will come on stream by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (March 2016-March 2017), Brigadier General Esmaili said in a speech on Wednesday.

The new missile systems will be “fatal” to any enemy who dares to Threaten Iran, he added.

Brigadier General Esmaili further described Iran’s airspace as the safest in the Middle East thanks to its advanced, homegrown radars and defense missile systems.

Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.

Iran has made it clear that its military might poses no threat to the regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
