BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The commander of the Iranian Navy, Admiral Hussain Khanzadi, announced that the Islamic Republic is close to obtaining hypersonic missiles, and that the production of these weapons is on the agenda.

Khanzadi said: “The engines of the naval forces of the army missiles will undergo inevitable changes and should withstand more heat for a long time.”

“We will definitely have changes for the refueling systems and the marine navigation system in the marine force.”

He continued: “We have succeeded in achieving missile production with a range of 300 km, and we will soon reach more exciting ranges, and the manufacture of new generation missiles is part of the army’s naval power program.”

He explained, “The Navy will soon obtain a generation of hypersonic missiles, in which new jet engines are used to move at supersonic speeds several times.”

“The Iranian naval forces are looking forward to launching the missiles vertically, which will enable them to place more missiles on the deck of ships to hit more diversified targets.”

Should Iran obtain hypersonic missiles, they will be one of the handful of nations in the world that possess these weapons.
