Ballistic Missile Production Line Launched

Iran's defense minister said Iran is set to unveil three types of missiles in the coming months, adding that the production line of state-of-the-art ballistic missile Zolfaqar has been launched.
Lieutenant General Hossein Dehqan made the announcement in an open session of the parliament on Sunday.
Iran is observing Sacred Defense Week (started Sept. 21), which marks the 36th anniversary of the 1980-88 Iraq-imposed war, Press TV reported.
"We will begin manufacturing three vital products in the area of missile [development] by the end of the year," he said, stressing that the latest defense achievements will greatly boost the country's defense capability.
"These three missiles include Qadir, Sejjil [solid-fuel long-range models] as well as high-precision Khorramshahr," he explained.
The defense minister announced that Iran has now launched the production line of precision-guided solid-fuel anti-radar jamming missile Zolfaqar. With a range of 750 kilometers, Zolfaqar is a multiple reentry vehicle missile capable of carrying several warheads.
It is the latest generation of Iran's long-range missiles and can carry out precision strikes against targets on the ground.
The missile was unveiled during a recent large-scale naval parade in the southern port city of Bandar Abbas.

  High Missile Development
Dehqan said Iran is capable of designing and producing missiles with various ranges as well as any level of precision and destructive power when it comes to cruise types.
He announced that in future, Iran will develop ground-to-ground ballistic missiles that can hit maritime targets far away.
"In the area of missile defense, we know no limits to our might and that is why we will continue to boost our defense power as scheduled," he said.
Dehqan also said Iran is the only country that enjoys peace and stability in a region that is severely troubled by violence, adding that the Islamic Republic is the standard-bearer of the fight against terror and leaves no stone unturned to restore calm to the region.
In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems.
Iran has also conducted major military drills to enhance the defense capabilities of its armed forces and to test modern military tactics and advanced army equipment.
Tehran maintains that its military capability poses no threat to other countries, stating that its defense doctrine is only based on deterrence.
