Iran has strengthened its military capability despite the sanctions imposed on Iran over its nuclear energy program.
Iran has unveiled its latest achievements in defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems in recent years.
A senior Iranian military commander said recently the country has upgraded its ballistic missiles to hit moving targets with pinpoint precision, Press TV reported.
Second-in-Command of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Brigadier General Hossein Salami said it may seem scientifically impossible, but in addition to Iran, this is only Russia which is likely to possess the technology and even the United States does not possess it.
Salami said Iran’s ballistic missiles are capable of destroying moving targets with pinpoint precision.
He also said Iran’s military has improved its air defense system but declined to disclose further details due to the confidential nature of the issue.
Iran has repeatedly assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to other countries and that its defense doctrine is based entirely on deterrence.
Earlier, Salami said Iran is capable of targeting strategic interests of the enemy at any location across the globe in case of any act of aggression against the country.
The remarks came following recent aggressive statements by U.S. President Barack Obama against Iran.
In an address at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York, on May 28, Obama said there is an opportunity to resolve disputes over Iran’s nuclear energy program but reiterated that Washington reserves “all options” against Iran.
Subsequently, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri warned that any U.S. act of aggression against Iran will sound the death bell for the Israeli regime and see war engulfing the United States.
In an exhibition held on May 11, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps unveiled two new types of home-made ballistic missiles dubbed Hormuz 1 and Hormuz 2.
Since 1992, Iran has made its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles, radars, boats, submarines, and fighter planes.
Iran also unveiled its first domestic long-range Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) in 2010.
