Iran began mass production of missiles to fight aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf

Iran began mass production of cruise missiles to destroy naval targets, including military ships, Gazeta.ru reports, citing CBS. This was stated by Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi.


The minister did not mention the exact number of missiles that are planned to be produced.

Developed by Iranian experts, Gader missiles can hit targets within an 124 radius of miles. New missiles have already entered service with the Iranian forces, including the units that protect the state’s maritime borders.

According to him, the missiles "can sink huge warships."

Experts point out that rockets pose a potential threat to US ships in the Persian Gulf.

Iran's naval command this week threatened with the deployment of warships off the US Atlantic coast.

Iran regularly announces the creation of new species weapons. So, in July of this year, Iran first announced the testing of long-range missiles in the Indian Ocean.

    This is how the USA reacted.

    However, Washington was rather skeptical about the statements. “We do not take such statements seriously, because they do not reflect the capabilities of the Iranian Navy,” White House spokesman Jay Carney commented on the threats voiced by the United States.

    “This posturing of Iran is intended for an internal audience. Their fleet cannot reach our shores, it's just bombastic rhetoric, ”analyst Michael Connell quoted CNN as saying.

    The missiles will be handed over to the naval unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and, as emphasized in Iran, are used to protect the borders of the Iranian part of the Caspian Sea and the Gulf of Oman.

    About Gader it is known that it can be based both on the sea and on the coast, and its range can be up to 200 km.

    As I understand it, this is a defensive weapon and what does the US coast have to do with it?

    Probably for protection. And since the more problems the USA has and the more countries are against them, the more I feel comfortable

      The Regional State Administration is calmer, only until they (the USA) want to remove all their problems in one way or another ...

    Carriers in the Gulf, i.e. in a relatively limited water area, the production for missiles is good, the main thing is that there are a lot of them (missiles) and the launchers are well camouflaged.

    If this is not Iranian disinformation, then this is good. Understands Ahmadinejad the precariousness of his position

    What are you laughing at? I just measured on the map, so in the narrowest point of the bay near the city of Bandar Abbas, the distance is only 90 km, and the average strait is 200-290 km wide, and you cannot approach Kuwait (Iraq) by another sea. Now let the Merikos laughter!
    Vadim, and spokesman Jay Carney in geography was a loser at school.

      For a mad dog 200-290 km is not a hook, so - two bast shoes on the map

    That's right, let them arm themselves:) If the Pindos when the thread attacks Iran (which I doubt very much), they will remember very warmly, S. Korea and Vietnam :)

      I agree Figwa - well done Persians!
      It's a shame that Russia cannot "disobey" the overseas "masters of the world" and if you do not stand up directly for a neighbor, then at least put normal weapons
      (well, at least they managed to deliver air defense systems, aircraft engines and radars)

      Each time I read Iran’s statements about testing the “new systems” of weapons (in which I fear more bravado than reality), I am also outraged by the ban on pendos to supply them with weapons - both pity and sympathy for Iran, and at the same time admiration for the courage of their people and government - are really heirs ancient Persians!

      I am sure that “defending” Iran is a priority task for Russian diplomacy - and at the first opportunity to rearm and train them all
      Iran is our last "shield" from the south - closing the Caspian Sea from the enemy

        Marat, it is dangerous to fall into euphoria about friendship with Iran "softly passing" into fraternal kisses. Friendship with them should be strictly dosed and, strictly, within a certain framework. And this framework clearly indicates - Iran should dominate the region as long as it remains a dangerous and insurmountable irritant for the states. And we should give him all-round help in this regard, not forgetting that a crocodile, fed by your hands, at one fine moment, can bite your head off. The East is a delicate matter ... And I rejoice with the success of the Persians with you, but "I sleep in half "

          Well, it’s like England - “there are no eternal friends - only eternal interests - something like that” - of course we don’t need Great Persia in the neighborhood on my own - as a Soviet person I will not be able to experience euphoria from the neighborhood with the Shiite state.
          But while the pendos are a common enemy, we are natural allies with them - here it seems to me that you and I agree.

    I do not see anything pleasant here.
    Too explosive mixture turns: Syria-Iran-Turkey-Israel ...
    Related mutual claims and good neighborly "love."

    Maybe n% build so that does not seem to anyone.

    I still forgot Pakistan ... And he is there next to you, if that.
