Iran inaugurates production line of man-portable missiles

Tehran (ISNA) – As Iran is marking the 42nd Islamic Revolution anniversary, the country has inaugurated production lines of man-portable missiles as well as a center for manufacturing solid fuel.

In a ceremony on Saturday, the two projects were inaugurated with the presence of Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Major General Mohamad Bagheri and Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami.

The projects are the mass production line of advanced shoulder-launched missiles and also, centers for producing solid fuel to meet the demands of ground forces’ missiles.

“The experience of four decades of the Islamic Revolution proves that the only path to development is becoming stronger. Iran’s defense industry has a decisive role in creating power and deterrence,” General Bagheri said.

“This is actually one of the most unique production lines of short-range air defense missiles in the region and can fulfill the operational needs of the armed forces using advanced technologies in the fields of optics, guidance, and control,” he added.

First-generation of these shoulder-launched missiles were being imported to the country but today, the advanced generation of them is being manufactured in Iran, he said, noting that the missiles have different varieties with a range of around 5 kilometers that can counter various targets.

The top commander said that the missiles have successfully passed the advanced tests.
