Iran mass-producing anti-ship missiles

TEHRAN – Iran is mass-producing a ballistic missile which can travel at more than three times the speed of sound and hit targets on the high seas, a top commander said on Monday, according to the website africasia.com. Commander Mohammad Ali Jafari, who heads the elite military force, the Revolutionary Guards, said the missile had a range of 300 kilometres. “Iran is mass producing a smart ballistic missile for sea targets with a speed three times more than the speed of sound,” Jafari was quoted as saying by state news agency IRNA. He said the missile was “undetectable and can’t be neutralised by enemies,” without specifying the name. “As the enemy’s threats will likely come from the sea, air and by missiles, the Guards have been equipped with capabilities to neutralise the enemy’s advanced technology,” he said, according to another Iranian news agency, ISNA. Iran’s missile and space programmes have sparked concern in the West that such advanced technologies, combined with the nuclear know-how which the nation is acquiring, may enable Tehran to produce an atomic weapon.
