Iran develops new strategic systems

Iran officially presented the new hoveizeh cruise missile (dam), with an announced range of 1350 km, which will be deployed in the aerospace units of the Revolutionary Guards. At the same time, it announced that its intermediate range ballistic missile (2000 km) Khorramshahr would now be equipped with a new military payload of 2 tons.

While the United States denounced the Vienna agreement signed in 2015, lifting economic sanctions against the country's commitment to renounce its military nuclear program, Iran continues to claim the right to develop its own strategic systems, arguing that having no nuclear warheads to equip them, they respect the commitments of the international agreement.

Iran has developed several ballistic missiles with nuclear capability, including the Shahab-3, derived from the Chinese DF-21, with a range of 1500 km, and the Shahab-4, with an estimated range of 2500 km, derived from the Soviet SS-4. These systems were developed, in all likelihood, with the support of North Korea, which uses local versions of these two missiles. The Shahb-5, derived from the SS-5, has a range of more than 3500 km, while the KOSAR, derived from it, would exceed 4000 km in range. It is also currently developing the Shahab 6 missile, derived from the Soviet SS-7, with a range of more than 5000 km, making it an intercontinental weapon.
