Iran on Friday kicked off days-long celebrations of the 40th anniversary of the country’s 1979 Islamic Revolution that toppled the U.S.-backed shah, overturned 2,500 years of monarchical rule and brought hard-line Shiite clerics to power.
Iran has unveiled a new surface-to-surface cruise missile, Hoveyzeh, with a range of 1300 kilometers amid celebrations for the 40th anniversary. The missile was showcased at an exhibition showcasing defence achievements in Tehran on Friday.
Iranian Defence Minister, Amir Hatami said, during the unveiling ceremony, that the cruise missile needs a very short time for its preparedness and can fly at a low altitude.
