Iran released for the first time last week a video report showing one of its underground missile bases, local media outlets reported.

Located 500 meters under the ground, the base contains several kinds of advanced missiles and rocket launchers.

“Iranian missiles of varying ranges are ready to be launched from underground bases once Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei orders to do so,” said Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.

He explained that the Islamic Republic has created Missile Bases in all the provinces and cities throughout the country at a depth of 500 meters under Ground.

“We have no concern over the newest and most advanced generations of satellites and spying equipments owned by the enemies of the Islamic Revolution,” Hajizadeh added and stressed that “this is only one of Iran’s missile bases,”

Hajizadeh added that his country will replace the current home-made missiles with new generations of long-range, advanced missiles, which run on liquid and solid fuel.

Hajizadeh also said those who threaten Iran with “military option on the table” are better to take a look at Iran’s “options under the table,” referring to the underground military bases.

“Iran’s known military power is only the tip of the iceberg,” he further asserted.

Iran has so far benefited from domestic specialists to improve its military power, frequently unveiling new products.

Many official said that Iran’s military capability has become very limited compared to that of the US and NATO.

Since 1992, Iran has been manufacturing its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles, radars, boats, submarines and fighter planes.
