TEHRAN, May 26 (RIA Novosti) – Iran has deployed “large numbers” of new long-range missile launchers, Iranian semi-official news agency Fars reported on Sunday.
Iranian Defense Minister, Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi was quoted by Fars as saying the new ground-to-ground missile launchers would enable Iran’s armed forces to “mightily crush any invading enemy and will make him regretful of his deeds."
The report did not specify, however, the type of new weapons or their number.
Vahidi added the Iranian defense industries were now capable of producing different home-made weapons and military systems in aerospace, naval, air, ground, electronic and optic fields, according to Fars.
