The Iranian Navy has plans to increase the operational range of its missiles by increasing portability of its missile systems, Iranian Navy Lieutenant Commander Rear Admiral Gholam-Reza Khadem Biqam has said.
“Given the extensive presence and deployment of the navy in Iran’s water borders, promotion of our missile capabilities is a must,” he noted.
“There are several ways to safeguard our territories and promotion of our coastal systems is not the only way.
“We can use portable missile systems in a bid to increase the operational range of our missiles as well,” Biqam added.
