Amir Ali Hajizadeh (IRGC Aero-Space commander): Today we proudly add another defensive product to our operational cycle; it has been produced with endless efforts of our defense industry and the defense ministry. As honorable people of Iran know, we have 20 different types of surface-to-surface ballistic missiles. We have different kinds of surface-to-surface missiles, surface-to-sea missiles, missiles with liquid and solid fuel, and they are all operative. We have started our activities in the field of missile cruises several years ago. We had a major obstacle in the field of jet engines and propellers. Fortunately, it has been resolved in recent years. And we will naturally see more of such missiles – surface-to-sea, air-to-surface, surface-to-surface. Missile cruises — compared to ballistic missile — are less heavy and are smaller. They can be moved easily. And since they move in lower altitude against the enemy, they cannot be easily detected. I congratulate this success to the people, the supreme leader, and family of martyrs.
