Tehran, IRNA -- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Thursday introduced the Rezvan (meaning heaven in Persian) Missile as the one capable of entering the atmosphere with a speed that is eight times higher than the speed of sound.

Major General Hossein Salami made the remarks while speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a military parade that started across Iran in the morning in commemoration of the Sacred Defense Week which remembers the Iraqi-imposed war against Iran in 1980-88.

The country is pioneer in the drone area, the commander underlined.

About Rezvan, General Salami said it is a precision-guided and state-of-the-art missile with a medium ballistic range.

Earlier in the day, the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) unveiled for the first time a sample of its missiles dubbed "Sevvom-e Khordad"- in Persian means the third day of the third month of the Iranian calendar year- with air defense system and 200-km range.
