Iran Develops Hypersonic Ballistic Missile Able to Overcome All Air Defense Shields
TEHRAN (FNA)- Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Commander Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh hailed Iran’s high capability in production of different military equipment, and said that the country has manufactured a hypersonic ballistic missile which enjoys advanced technologies to penetrate all types of advanced air defense systems.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Brig. Gen. Hajizadeh noted Iran has managed to develop cutting-edge hypersonic ballistic missile which is capable of penetrating advanced missile interception systems and hit the targets.
The top commander stated that the missile, newly manufactured by Iranian experts, is very fast and able to maneuver both in the space and outer space.
“The missile can target the enemy’s anti-missile systems and is a great generational leap in the missile field,” he added.
“I don’t think any technology would be found for tens of years capable of countering it,” the IRGC commander declared.
Brigadier General Hajizadeh went on to say that the Iranian ballistic missile targets the enemy’s anti-missile systems, describing it as a huge leap in the development of a new generation of missiles.
Iranian officials praises the development of the country's defense capabilities in recent decades, and stress that Tehran's defense power is not negotiable.
Military comanders say Iran stands among the world's top states manufacturing drones and precision-striking missiles, and add different types of home-made military equipment are favored by world powers.
The Islamic Republic’s military doctrine holds that the country’s armed capability solely serves defensive purposes.
Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made substantial headway in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the weaponry sphere.
Iranian officials have repeatedly stressed that the country will not hesitate to boost its military capabilities, including its missile and drone power, which are entirely meant for defense, and that Iran’s defense capabilities will never be subject to negotiation.
