Iran’s new long-range ballistic missiles displayed at the military parade

The Iranian Armed Forces displayed the country’s latest home-made long-range and ballistic missiles during the annual military parades in Tehran and across the country on Tuesday.

The Iranian forces displayed various types of home-made ballistic and long-range missiles, including Sejjil and Qadr -F missiles.

Iran successfully tested second generation of Sejjil missiles and brought it into mass production in 2013. Sejjil missiles are considered as the third generation of Iran-made long-range missiles.

Also, Iran’s 2000km-range, liquid-fuel, Qadr-F ballistic missile can reach territories as far as Israel.

Iran’s surface-to-surface Sejjil missile, the long-range Shahab-3 ballistic missile which has a range of up to 2,000 km, and Zelzal and Fateh missiles have all been developed by the Aerospace Organization of the Defense Industries.

This is while the solid-fuel, two-stage Sejjil missile with two engines, is capable of reaching a very high altitude and therefore has a longer range than that of the Shahab 3 model.

Also the latest military and defense achievements made by Iranian experts were put on display at the parades.

During the parades, the Iranian Armed Forces displayed 12 long-range ballistic missiles, including 4 Qadr-F missiles with a range of 1,950km, Qadr-H missiles with a range of 1,650km and 4 Sejjil missiles with a range of 2,000km.

Also, 4 Khalij-e Fars anti-ship ballistic missiles and 4 Hormoz anti-ship and radar-evading missiles with a range of 300km were among other missiles displayed in parades.

The ceremony was participated by President Hassan Rouhani and senior military and government officials as well as foreign diplomats, military attaches and reporters.

The Iranian Armed Forces have recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of home-made weapons, tools and equipment, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircrafts, UAVs and air defense and electronic systems, during massive military drills.
