In comments in the city of Mashhad on Friday, Deputy Defense Minister General Qassem Taqizadeh said the accuracy of Iranian missiles have been improved to the extent that they can hit targets with pinpoint accuracy.
Iran has manufactured a series of advanced missiles with pinpoint accuracy that have not been made public, he added.
He said the Islamic Republic is now among the top eight countries with the technology of launching spacecraft, although it started its activities in this field 50 years later than developed countries.
Iranian military technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
Tehran has always assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
In August, the Defense Ministry unveiled a number of new smart and precision-guided bombs, including the ‘Yaseen’ and ‘Balaban’ guided smart bombs and the newest generation of Qaem-class bomb, an electro-optical guided weapon with pinpoint accuracy.
