The production lines, which will enhance the range and accuracy of the country’s missile systems, were inaugurated on Thursday in a ceremony attended by Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan on the eve of National Defense Industry Day.
With these production lines coming on stream, said the defense chief, the country has achieved the capability to design state-of-the-art defensive products and achieved self-sufficiency in raw materials required for various missile defense systems.
Dehqan said the accomplishment will contribute to the nation’s deterrence capability.
The breakthrough will help meet all the defensive needs of Iran’s Armed Forces as far as energy storage on a large scale is concerned, and help run future development plans in the field of defense systems, the minister underlined.
Given its cutting-edge defense industry, said the top commander, the Islamic Republic will make anyone that threatens Iran regret its move.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and reached self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
On June 2, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) officially put into service a domestically developed long-range radar system, named Ghadir, capable of detecting stealth aircraft.
The modern radar system uses three-dimensional (3-D) technology to detect airborne targets, including radar-evading aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles, and satellites in low orbits.
Tehran has repeatedly assured other countries that its military might poses no threat to other states, insisting that the country’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
