Iran on Sunday showcased several domestically-developed defensive achievements, including a hypersonic cruise missile and a mobile defense system, at an aerospace exhibition at the Ashura Aerospace University of Science and Technology in Tehran.
The “Fattah-2” hypersonic cruise missile, “Mehran” mobile defense system, “9th of Dey” upgraded system, and “Shahed-147” drone were unveiled.
The exhibition, which included missile, drone, defense and space sections, featured new and updated achievements of the Iranian scientists and specialists of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force, Fars News Agency (FNA) reported.
In early June, the IRGC showcased a domestically-developed hypersonic ballistic missile, dubbed “Fattah”, with a range of 1,400 kilometers and the speed of Mach 13-15, which enjoys advanced high-tech to penetrate and destroy all anti-missile defense systems.
Addressing the unveiling ceremony, IRGC Aerospace Commander Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said Iran now became one of the four countries in the world that possess the technology to develop hypersonic missiles.
He stated that unlike other types of missiles, “Fattah” cannot be countered by any defense system, adding that the hypersonic missile cannot be destroyed by any missile due to its movement in various directions and heights.
In late June, Hajizadeh confirmed that Tehran may increase the range of its hypersonic ballistic missile to 2,000 kilometers.
