TEHRAN, Nov. 05 (MNA) – Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami announced on Tuesday that Iran has on agenda increasing its combat power in various fields including missile industry, aerial and ground defense, electronic warfare besides boosting military capabilities.

Iranian military officials admit that the country knows no deadlock in developing its required equipment and boosting the country’s defense power by relying on domestic capabilities.

On October 9, Chief Commander of Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami said that achievements of Iranian armed forces in the defense sector are based on modern technologies. 

“IRGC has made great achievements in all scientific, economic, technical, and industrial fields of the defense sector after the Global Arrogance imposed tyrannical sanctions,” said Salami.

Iran’s defense sector has seen many great achievements made by Iranian engineers during recent years. The most recent unveiling came last month as domestically made Bavar-373 air defense system came on stream. Tehran has repeatedly announced that its military power is just aimed at defending the country against threats and does not present any threat to others.
