IRGC Equipped With New Missile

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Naval Force has been supplied with a new long-range coast-to-sea missile capable of hitting sea targets.
The missile, which was displayed on a mobile launcher vehicle during the September 21 military parade, is called Qamar-e Bani Hashem, Fars News Agency reported.
Elaborating on the new weapon system, Deputy Commander of the IRGC Naval Force Alireza Tangsiri said it is a long-range missile. “The missile is currently fired from coastal launchers, but it may also be mounted and fired from vessels in the near future,” he said.
Tangsiri did not reveal the exact range or other specifications or features of the missile.
Earlier this year, Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan announced a plan to produce supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles.
“We have been able to increase the speed of missiles, and God willing, we will build supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles in the near future,” he said in August. Stressing that Iranian experts have taken long strides to develop cruise missiles, Dehqan said the country has doubled or tripled the range of its missiles, mounted state-of-the-art guiding systems on them and increased their precision-striking power.
