The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) delivered state-of-the-art equipment to its Naval forces to equip them with Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (CBRND) systems for defending the country, Fars News Agency (FNA) reported.
The systems were supplied to the IRGC Navy in a ceremony participated by its Commander Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri in the Southern city of Shiraz to enhance its preparedness for modern warfare in areas of detection, decontamination and protection and safety against chemical, microbial and radiation weapons.
Addressing the ceremony, Rear Admiral Tangsiri underlined the indigenous nature of the IRGC Navy’s equipment and products from vessels to missiles, and said the IRGC is self-sufficient depending on domestically-built products on the ground and in the sea.
The Iranian experts in the Armed Forces have developed a large number of advances weapons and military equipment in the past few years.
In a latest development last week, the IRGC Ground Force used one of its state-of-the-art home-made weapons system to annihilate the terrorists' positions in Western and Northwestern Iran.
The footage taken by the IRGC forces of operations against the terrorists shows that the 155-mm HM41and Grad missile artilleries were used to target the terrorists' hideouts in the operations which started on Wednesday.
The precision-striking capability of the shells which fully and precisely targeted the terrorists’ position reveals that the IRGC has applied one of its hi-tech achievements, the home-made laser-guided 155-mm Basir shells which are of Krasnopol type.
Iran announced in 2012 that it had manufactured laser-guided artillery shells that were capable of spotting and hitting moving targets with a high degree of precision.
