Iran successfully test fired a domestically-made ballistic missile dubbed “Hormuz-2” last week.
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency on Thursday that the IRGC forces successfully test-fired the Hormuz-2 missile in recent days.
He said the missile destroyed the floating target from a distance of 250km.
The Fars news report quoted Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, chief of the Guard’s airspace division as saying that Iran was “capable of building our needed equipment and we have built and are building a system better than the S-300.”
The operational readiness of the system, dubbed as Bavar (Belief) 373, will be tested in late May, according to the report.
Hormuz-2 is a naval ballistic missile capable of hitting floating targets with high accuracy within a range of 300 kilometers.
