Iran to equip IRGC Navy with advanced cruise missiles

Iran’s Defense Ministry plans to equip the naval fleet of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) with cruise missiles having a range of more than 300 kilometers.
The cruise missiles have different ranges and have super advanced capabilities, Director of Iran’s Defense Ministry’s Aerospace Organization Brigadier General Mehdi Farahi said in a Sunday interview.
“The precision and range of the new missiles have been enhanced compared with those of the 300 km-range missiles that the IRGC Navy already has,” Farahi pointed out.
On April 27, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi announced Iran’s plans to unveil indigenous ballistic and cruise missiles as well as other new military achievements within the next five months.

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.

Tehran has repeatedly assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to other countries, stating that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
