IRGC Navy’s New Missile Town Unveiled

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy unveiled a new missile town containing a big variety of systems and ballistic missiles with state-of-the-art equipment.

The IRGC new missile city was unveiled in a ceremony on Monday in the presence of the IRCG Commander Major General Hossein Salami, IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri and a number of top military commanders.

The missile city is equipped with different systems and cruise and ballistic missiles enjoying different ranges.

The new systems and equipment make IRGC Navy capable of launching pin-point missiles from underground, laying naval mines with various ranges, firing missiles at 360-degree, confronting electronic warfare, and increasing the range and destruction power in operations.

All the mentioned systems have been produced by Iranian experts at defense ministry, knowledge-based companies, and IRGC research centers.

One of the newly unveiled missile systems is capable of changing the target after being launched.

“Today, part of our missile power that gives superiority in the battlefield and has been developed by domestic experts enter the operational section of the IRGC Navy,” Brigadier General Tangsiri said in the ceremony.

“The process of making IRGC Navy stronger will continue,” he said, warning enemies that they will receive a “deadly blow” in case of any aggression against Iran.

Major General Salami also noted in the ceremony that four decades of enemies’ attacks against Iran has only resulted in their defeat and frustration.

“After being defeated in military and proxy wars and cultural aggression, enemies are pursuing other strategies including the imposition of sanctions and waging an economic war,” he said, adding, “IRGC’s empowerment is aimed at promoting the grandeur of the Iranian nation.”

In relevant remarks in January, Salami said Iran is resolved to grow power to defend its territorial integrity and independence, as the IRGC navy inaugurated a new underground missile town on the shores of the Persian Gulf.

“Our logic entails defending territorial integrity, the country’s independence and the Islamic Revolution’s achievements through growing power,” General Salami said during a ceremony for unveiling one of the strategic underground missile bases of the IRGC Navy on the shores of the Persian Gulf, warning the enemies against any evil intention on Iran.

“We believe that our enemies do not accept (our) power of logic, but they rely on the logic of power,” he noted, adding, “So, in order to prevent the imposition of their hegemonic will and program, there is no way for us other than strengthening deterring defensive and offensive power.”

Pointing to the various kinds of highly destructive and precision striking missiles at the base, the IRGC commander went on to say, “These missiles with hundreds of kilometers of range, are able to beat the enemy’s equipment of electronic warfare.”

Salami reiterated that "if the arrogant and devilish enemies of Iran have any will, the brave youths of country will nip it in the bud".

“The IRGC Navy’s missiles are among the most advanced missiles in the world in the field of the coast-to-sea, surface-to-surface, air-to-sea and sea-to-air missiles.
