IRGC Navy Develops New AAMs

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy has manufactured two new air-to-air missiles, a commander said.

IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Reza Tangsiri announced on Saturday that the two new air-launched missiles have been developed for the purpose of destroying drones and cruise missiles.

The two homegrown AAMs have a range of 4 km and 17 km, he added.

The new missiles have already been manufactured and will be unveiled in future, the general noted.

Hailing the IRGC Navy’s progress in manufacturing air- and sea-based missiles, the commander said the AI-powered missiles can precisely hit the targets at a distance of up to 2,000 km.

Last week, the IRGC unveiled a new version of the ‘Fattah’ ballistic missile equipped with a hypersonic glide vehicle (HGV) warhead.

The glide vehicle can reach a speed of Mach 5 to 20, depending on its design and utility.
