The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force unveiled the ‘Fattah’ indigenously-developed hypersonic missile on Tuesday, which it says can beat all existing air defense systems.

The unveiling ceremony was held in the presence of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, the Chief Commander of the IRGC Major General Hossein Salami, and the Commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.
‘Fattah’ hypersonic ballistic missile has been produced by IRGC Aerospace Force experts.
The hypersonic missile has a range of 1,400 kilometers, hits speeds of Mach 13-15, and can breach and destroy all anti-missile shields.
With a solid fuel propulsion system and a second-stage mobile nozzle, the missile has the ability to reach very high speeds and perform various maneuvers in and out of the Earth’s atmosphere to overcome different types of air defense systems.
The speed of the missile can reach Mach 13-15 before hitting the target.
Speaking in a ceremony, Brigadier General Hajizadeh said that by unveiling the ‘Fattah’ hypersonic ballistic missile today, Iran now became one of the four countries in the world that have this technology.
He underlined that the Fattah missile cannot be destroyed by any missile due to its movement in different directions and heights.
