Iranian Navy Develops New air to air missiles

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.

The Reuters/Ipsos survey found only 32 percent of respondents said “the US should support Israel”.

About 68 percent of respondents said they agreed with the statement, “Israel should call a ceasefire and try to negotiate”. Some 39 percent supported the idea “the US should be a neutral mediator”, compared with 27 percent a month earlier. Only 4 percent of respondents said the United States should support Palestinians, while 15 percent said the US shouldn’t be involved at all in the war.
