Iran presented it’s first domestically made hypersonic ballistic missile. The country made the announcement likely to heighten Western concerns about Tehran’s missile capabilities.
Iranian State media also published pictures of the missile named ‘Fattah’ at ceremony attended by President Ebrahim Rahisi and commanders of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards corps.
Iranian State Media quoted, “The Precision-guided Fattah hypersonic missile has a range of 1400 km and it is capable of penetratinv all defence shields, as according to Head of the Guards’ aerospace force, Amirali Hajizadeh”.
The Hypersonic Missile by Iran can fly at least five times faster than the speed of sound and on a complex trajectory, which makes them difficult to intercept. Last year, Iran also claimed about the missile which can move in and out of the atomsphere.
Now Fattah can target ‘the enemy’s advanced anti-missile systems and is a big generational leap in the field of missiles. It can bypass the most advanced anti-ballistic missile systems of the United States and the Zionist regime, including Israel’s Iron Dome’.
Despite all the opposition from Western world, the Islamic Republic has announced that it will further develop it’s defensive missile programme to strengthen it’s defence system for future.
In response to Iranian Ballistic Missile, the Defense Minister of Israel said, “I hear our enemies boasting about weapons they are developing. To such any developments, we have an even better response, whether it be on land, in the air or in the maritime arena, including both defensive and offensive means”.
