Iran is capable of producing and using missiles that can land no more than 10 meters away from their targets, the chief of staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Mohammad Baqeri, says.
During a visit to an exhibition of Iran’s defense and military achievements in the city of Arvandkenar on Saturday, Bageri added that Iran is among the few countries that have succeeded in achieving the know-how to make such missiles.
The Iranian military official added that all the equipment on display in the exhibition have been manufactured with the use of domestic technology.
Baqeri emphasized that the world must realize that young Iranian scientists are convinced that they can help their country achieve self-sufficiency in all fields.
“In light of such great achievements, other problems of the country appear insignificant,” he added.
In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems.
The Islamic Republic has conducted several military drills to enhance the defense capabilities of its armed forces and to test modern military tactics and equipment.
Commander of the Aerospace Division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said on March 9 that Iran has fired a ballistic missile, dubbed Hormuz-2, and the missile successfully destroyed a target at a distance of 250 kilometers.
The IRGC also successfully test-fired two ballistic missiles in March 2016 in line with the country's defense doctrine.
The missiles dubbed Qadr-H and Qadr-F were fired during the large-scale drills, codenamed Eqtedar-e-Velayat.
The missiles were fired from East Alborz heights in northern Iran and could hit targets 1,400 kilometers away in Makran Coasts southeast of the country.
Iran says its military might poses no threat to other countries, stating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
