Iran Has Plans of Rolling Out Hypersonic Ballistic Missile
Iran had plans of unveiling its domestically-manufactured hypersonic ballistic missile, per a senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh urged for the development of a “significant generational leap” in the field of missiles.
“The hypersonic missile has completed its tests and will be unveiled soon,” Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, the IRGC commander said on May 29, 2023.
This missile can go to very high speeds, roughly in the range of 12 to 13 Mach, and can move both within and outside of the Earth’s atmosphere, per Hajizadeh’s view.
Additionally, the missile had the ability to bypass all other missile defense systems.
Hypersonic missiles have the ability to fly at speeds at least five times faster than the speed of sound. These missiles’ speed and complex trajectories make them nearly impossible to intercept.
The announcement came days following the Iranian government’s decision to unveil a new ballistic missile, the Kheibar, which is able to reach a range of 2,000 kilometers and carry a warhead weighing up to 1.5 metric tons.
After the missile’s test launch on May 25, the United States government asserted that Iran’s missile program constituted a “serious threat”.
The Iranian government claims that its missile program is only for defensive purposes and is something that it’s unwilling to negotiate.
With Iran growing closer to China and Russia, it’s only inevitable that its military capacity will improve and likely match that of the Israelis and their Western allies. This will make the neocons’ and Zionists’ most rabid fantasies about knocking out the Iranian regime become mere illusions.
Multipolarity is a geopolitical game-changer and most western decision-makers are still not prepared to come to grips with it.
