Commander: Precision Targeting of Iranian Missiles Maximized

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran has upgraded the precision capability of its missile targeting systems, an achievement giving Iran's missile capability an edge over a wide host of adversaries, senior military sources announced on Tuesday.

"Following Iran's access to advanced technologies, the precision capability of Iranian missiles has come close to 100 percent," Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Naval Forces Brigadier General Ali Fadavi announced today.

He also said that a similar development has been made in the Iranian-made vessels after the country's access to advanced floating technologies, adding that the IRGC naval forces are now working on plans to turn the country into the number one speed boat producer in the world "so that the IRGC naval forces can have the first and the last say in the field of speed vessels".

"Utilizing the new progresses made by Iranian experts has placed us among the few countries which have the technology for firing missiles from surface and subsurface speed vessels with maximum precision targeting capability and minimum deviation," the commander reiterated.

Elsewhere, Fadavi pointed out that the IRGC naval forces are carefully monitoring the moves by regional and trans-regional enemies.

Iran has been pushing an arms development program in recent years in a bid to reach self-sufficiency. It has produced its own jet fighters and armored vehicles as well as radar-avoiding missiles and other high-tech weapons.
