BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – The new commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Major General Hossein Salami, boasted this week that Iran possesses the ability to strike aircraft carriers with their ballistic missiles.

“A guidance and control system capable of steering a ballistic missile to hit a mobile target is a miracle of technology which is possessed by maybe one or two countries (in the world),” Major General Salami said on Tuesday, as quoted by Fars News.

“Twelve years ago it happened,” he added, reminding that Iran test-fired a ballistic missile in 2007 which hit a target three times smaller than a US aircraft carrier on the sea. “The aircraft carriers’ scenario is over for us,” reiterated the commander, reassuring that his country is capable of drowning hostile vessels in the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea.

He continued that Iran’s enemies have unsuccessfully exhausted all of their capacity for various types of warfare against his nation.

Salami said Iran’s enemies had already attempted maximum pressure against the Islamic Republic in every area — including economic, cultural, and political ones — to no effect.

“Today, we are a great and invincible power because we have experienced and defeated all of the enemy’s scenarios,” Major General Salami said. “We have been able to shatter enemy psyops and dry up the enemy’s capacity for war.”

He said the power of Iran’s enemies were on the decline whereas the Islamic Republic’s might was growing.

“Today, Iran’s reach is no more confined to within its borders; today, Iran is a robust power in the region,” he added.

China. And its DF-21, which were the starting point of a whole family of carrier-killing Anti-ship ballistic missiles. They gave second-hand infrastructure and some ToT to Iran relating to this missile back in the 2000s, just like they did with the C-802. Iran ended up modifying its Fateh-110 missiles into the Khalij-Fars and Hormuz-1/2s. Partial transfers, and then reverse-engineering from the Iranians to fill the gaps. It has become a pattern when it comes to military-technical cooperation between the two countries. Same happens with their air-defense apparatus, specially when it comes to sensors of all kinds (surveillance, tracking, optical, IR… Read more »

The good news is that the ayatoilets are soon to be flushed… And as things are going, Yankees won’t have to shoot a single bullet…
Oh, BTW…
Good luck to pass through :
RIM-161D SM-3 block IIA : range 2,500km (intercepts IRBM/ICBM/Satellites)
RIM-161D SM-3 block IA/B : range 900km
RIM-67 Standard ER : range 120-185km
RIM-174 SM-6 ERAM : range 160km
RIM-116 Rolling Airframe : range 9km
And last but not least, the good ‘ole Phalanx CIWS…

I see you are not done with your copy pasting from one page to the other,keep goin’. But as I said earlier,a given asset does not have to go through all those layers at once,depeding on its flight profile and speed,+ angle of attack,its not a sum rationale,you dumbo, you will remain forrever too limited to comprehend this. A quasi-ballistic ,supersonic missole will never have to deal with CIWS,or RIMs 116/161Ds. Also,Iran will launch them in volleys in combination with sea-skimming C-802 and 803s,plus other MRBMs ,submarine-launched cruise missiles and decoys. You can hope for successful defense all you want;in… Read more »

Muhaha. Iran is a supeeeeeer power with less military budget than Spain… “the INS Hanit almost got sunk by a single second-rate Hezb early iranian-made variant of the C-802.” => The INS Hanit had no defensive measures switched on, maybe do you forget this… Any way, who he laughs the last laugh the best, goatfücker… We will see who was right and who was wrong if SHTF and if your Ayatoilets had the bälls the size of their mouth or yours, while they don’t even dare to attack Israel from Syria, I want to see the result if they test… Read more »

prince teutonic : there are many countries doing missiles able to hit moving targets… BTW, Iranian navy at least gave a try at being at the receiving end of at least two types of anti-ship missiles : our Exocets delivered by the good ‘ole Saddam and US’ Harpoon… Since I followed the events, I can tell you that Iranian navy vessels are prone to sink pretty easily. Do not take too much care about what Hossein Salami says : he’s already nicknamed the “Iranian Baghdad Bob”. Last year he said he was about to Invade Israel from Golan Heights with… Read more »

And Syria itself is still there,the IDF Jihadistan project is in its final cremation phases, and Iran just celebrated its 40th anniversary right under the nose of your master Bibi that meanwhile couldnt even form a government in his own home 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 and do I need to quote how many hundred times an Israeli general or minister boasted about striking Iran ‘tomorrow” without ever daring walk the petty talk for the past 15 years and counting ?I think that makes them more than even at that little game with the IRGC PR branch 😙 go for the kocher sausage in… Read more »

Na’al’dine Omouk! +++ “And Syria itself is still there” => And in need of a Marshall Plan and with an infestation of cockroaches in the NE… Well, at least, if the Qatar/Turkey roaches are still here, the Hezbollocks are gone. +++ “Jihadistan project is in its final cremation phases” => You mean Iran will be nuked? It’s not necessary, the regime can be liquidated cleanly. And Israel just celebrated its 71st anniversary right under the nose of your master Khamenei, the question is will Khamenei celebrate the 41st of the shitlamist state of Iran +++ “Bibi that meanwhile couldnt even… Read more »

=> And in need of a Marshall Plan and with an infestation of cockroaches in the NE… Well, at least, if the Qatar/Turkey roaches are still here, the Hezbollocks are gone. And Israel’s state coffers would be empty in less than a year without US injection of taxpayer money, from the mouth of late Shimon Peres himself. And this, without even having to deal with an internationally backed Islamist insurgency inside its border’s. => You mean Iran will be nuked? It’s not necessary, the regime can be liquidated cleanly. No, I meant the Al-Qaeda and ISIS brigade that the IDF… Read more »

Iran will not be the starter of war, but will definitely end the war for the Arabs and US very brutally. So it’s better to not even think about war with Iran forever and let this game end by the US to squeeze and extract the wealth of Arab nations as usual. This was the actual secret facts about the current situation in persian gulf, that’s all.
