Tehran, Feb 7, IRNA -- Chief Commander of the Islamic Republic Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jaafari said intelligent ballistic missiles to be used for sea targets will be mass produced in the country.
Outlining the latest IRGC achievements, he said the speed of the missiles exceeded triple of the sound speed and enemies could not detect and down them.
He also said a number of the IRGC aircraft have already been equipped with large tankers capable of carrying thirty tons of water to be used in extinguishing forest fires.
Making the remarks in a press conference Monday morning, he said that the revolutionary moves and developments in north of Africa especially in Egypt and Tunisia were quite natural and inevitable given the support the hegemonic powers have been rendering to the dictator regimes in the region.
The major general further said the freedom-seeking mottos based on the ideals of Iran’s Islamic Revolution are now quite evident and easy to hear among world people.
He said the world was gradually witnessing the step-by-step developments which the Founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini forecast many years ahead.
The commander also noted that the IRGC has carried out over ten thousand projects in healthcare, hygiene, construction, road and transportation, building schools and water providing areas in the recent years.
He also noted that the research phase of a project to produce long-range passive radars has already started and the radars which enjoy a range of 1,100 kilometers will be produced next year.
