Iran's Army Tests 'Smart' Missile With 300-Kilometer Range
ICBPS- Iran’s army test fired a sophisticated short-range missile with 300-kilometer range on Sunday, top military officer says the weapon can work in any weather conditions.
The smart missile’s range was 300 kilometers (186 miles) and it is capable to work under “any weather condition,” said the chief of army’s ground forces, Gen. Kiomars Heidari. He did not say where the test took place.
The army, however, controls short-range missiles, but longer-range ones capable of traveling up to 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) — far enough to reach archenemy Israel and U.S. military bases in the region — are controlled by IRGC.
Further, Brigadier General Amir Hatami, the defense minister of Iran, has highlighted the Islamic Republic’s deterrent power based on domestically manufactured missiles with great accuracy and maneuverability.
“Tehran is currently in the best state of defense and missile power,” he claimed.
Hatami also repeated that the Islamic Republic is determined to take revenge on those who ordered and perpetrated the assassination of senior regime’s scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh in November.
In a parallel development, deputy chief of the army Adm. Habibollah Sayyari told IRNA that Iran and Russia will hold a joint naval drill in the northern part of the Indian Ocean in the “near future.” Iran’s Army Missile
