TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces successfully destroyed a floating target from a distance of 250 kilometers using a domestically-made missile dubbed “Hormuz-2”.
In a speech on Thursday, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said the IRGC forces successfully test-fired the Hormuz-2 missile in recent days.
He said the missile destroyed the floating target from a distance of 250km.
Hormuz-2 is a naval ballistic missile capable of hitting floating targets with high accuracy within a range of 300 kilometers.
Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
Tehran has always assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to the regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
