IRGC Navy unveils missile site, takes delivery of new combat equipment

The naval force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) unveiled a missile site at an undisclosed location, which hosts various types of advanced ballistic and cruise missiles, and also took delivery of modern warfare systems and hardware, media reports said.

National TV on Monday aired a report describing the base as a “missile city” and showing rows of cruise and ballistic missiles and electronic warfare equipment in a depot with cement walls.

The site was unveiled during a ceremony attended by the IRGC's Chief Commander Major General Hossein Salami, Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri, the commander of the IRGC's Navy, and a number of other high-ranking military officials and commanders.

During the ceremony, the IRGC's Navy displayed different types of modern cruise and ballistic missiles systems with various ranges.

Tangsiri told national TV that the base has equipment to detect enemy signals.

The report said the base’s “electronic warfare equipment” included radar, monitoring, simulation and disruption systems.

“What we see today is a small section of the great and expansive missile capability of Revolutionary Guards’ naval forces,” Salami said in the broadcast, according to Reuters.

The IRGC also took delivery of new missile equipment and systems enjoying new operational capabilities, including precision firing from passive defense sites, launching mines at different ranges, 360-degree firing power, mobile launching, and the ability to counter electronic warfare. The new equipment will greatly increase the range and destructive power of the IRGC's combat units, Press TV wrote.

All the delivered equipment have been designed and manufactured by competent Iranian specialists working with the Defense Ministry and knowledge-based companies as well as research and self-sufficiency units of the IRGC.

During the ceremony, the IRGC's Navy also unveiled missile systems capable of changing target once the missile is fired.

The IRGC commander-in-chief in January unveiled one of the strategic underground missile cities all along its southern Persian Gulf coast.
