The IRGC Navy chief announced on Tuesday that during the Shah regime Iran’s most advanced missile was Harpoon that its range was just 40 kilometer and even that was run by foreign military advisors but today “we are building missiles ranging from 10 to 1000 kilometers for defending the Persian Gulf.”
Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri also said the “enemy has realized what capabilities we have and (therefore) wants to halt our progress.”
Iran is now quite self-sufficient in producing weapons, he added.
Tangsiri also said the forces under his command has carried out every task that it has been assigned to.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the admiral said whenever Iranian drones fly over American warships, they plead Iran to leave the area by claiming that they are in international waters but “we say that there is no international water in the Persian Gulf.”
He added, “Half of them (Persian Gulf waters) are our territorial waters and the other half are for the other countries (those on the southern shores of the Persian Gulf).”
On Tuesday, the IRGC chief Hossein Salami also told a congress on the status of science and technology during the Sacred Defense that Iran has mastered all modern technologies in military field.
The Sacred Defense refers to Iran’s resistance against the Invading army of Saddam Hussein in the 1980s.
Major General Salami said Iran can say with certainty that it has acquired all modern military technologies with reliance on the knowledge and insight of its own people, Tasnim reported.
Such technologies have been employed by all military units, he said, adding, “We have accumulated power to defeat the enemy.”
Commenting on the wars of the modern age, the general said that surprising the enemy today hinges on the technologies which are beyond the enemy’s calculation and with which the foes have no prior experience of confrontation.
In May 2020, the senior general warned enemies against any military adventurism against Iran, stressing that a major part of the Islamic Republic’s maritime power is “unknown” to others.
He also ruled out the possibility of a war against Iran, saying the enemy has become disappointed with military action on the Islamic Republic.
Meanwhile, IRGC Navy conducts military drill in Persian Gulf.
With the launch of several missiles, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy conducted on Tuesday a military drill in the Persian Gulf.
Rear Admiral Ali Reza Tangsiri, commander of the IRGC Navy, said that a wide variety of weaponry and gadgets, including helicopter-launched rockets, drones that dropped bombs with pinpoint accuracy, and unmanned smart submarine systems were used in the war game.
In the exercise, which was named after martyr General Nasrollah Shafiee, IRGC Navy commandoes had engaged in heliborne operations, he stated.
The commander noted that the war game's noteworthy elements included assault vessel combat operations, the launch of naval cruise missiles and rockets, the planting of naval mines in the exercise zone, and the destruction of a single target by cruise missiles fired from two distinct sites.
The head of the IRGC Navy also mentioned that his troops have exercised defense by detonating massive explosions off the coasts of Farsi Island and have used sophisticated submarine weapons to strike and destroy the maritime and coastal bases of the hypothetical enemy in coordination with Army Air Defense and Air Force units.
He stressed that Iranian warships have secured long-term stability in the Persian Gulf, the Sea of Oman, and the Strait of Hormuz, and that extra-regional forces are fully aware of Iran's readiness to respond firmly in the face of any danger or adventurism.
