IRAN unveiled its first ever hypersonic ballistic missile at present in a chilling risk to the West.
Iranian state media stated Fattah – that means “Victory” – can goal “the enemy’s superior anti-missile techniques and is an enormous generational leap within the subject of missiles”.
“It will possibly bypass probably the most superior anti-ballistic missile techniques of the US and the Zionist regime, together with Israel’s Iron Dome,” Iran’s state TV stated.
Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards aerospace wing, claimed the rocket “can manoeuvre out and in of the environment”.
Despite international sanctions, Tehran has been able to develop a sizeable weapons industry capable to exporting military kit to allies like Russia, which it has denied doing.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard already have a vast arsenal of ballistic missiles.
And the regime vowed to continue to develop its missile programme despite increasing concerns from the West.
The concerns contributed to Donald Trump’s decision in 2018 to ditch Tehran’s 2015 nuclear pact with six main powers.
Defence hawks have pointed to Iran’s monitor file of “exaggerating” its weapons capabilities.
