DM: Iran to Unveil New Home-Made Missiles, Submarine Soon

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi announced on Wednesday that his ministry will unveil a series of new missiles and a submarine produced by the country's experts and engineers in the near future.



Iran will unveil new air-based missiles and a new home-made submarine, Vahidi told reporters in Tehran today.

He said that the country will also inaugurate a space center soon.

The Iranian Army has recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of its home-made weapons, tools and equipments, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircraft, UAVs and air defense and electronic systems, during massive military drills.

In relevant remarks last week, Vahidi announced that the defense ministry will supply large numbers of different types of missiles to the country's Armed Forces and unveil different defense projects in coming days.

He said that the country' latest defense achievements will also go on display in the next few days, including a special space center.

Last week, the defense ministry started mass-production of a highly mobile home-made air-defense system.

The production line of the new system, Herz (Protector) 9, was inaugurated in a special ceremony attended by Vahidi.

Addressing the ceremony, Vahidi said that the system which has been designed and developed by Iranian experts at the Defense Industries Organization is a "sophisticated smart air-defense system and is capable of detecting, identifying and intercepting low-altitude targets through automatic controls".

He said that the system enjoys high mobility and night operation capability and can be connected to the country's integrated air-defense network.
