Iran’s Navy has developed a missile launching system which aims to increase the precision and range of anti-ship missiles.

The new system has been designed in collaboration with the Iranian Defense Ministry and Imam Khomeini Maritime University.

Given that all naval units are equipped with short-range and medium-range surface-to-surface Cruise missiles, using the new system will be a major move towards improving the missile capabilities of these units at sea.

Meanwhile, Commander of Iran Navy Rear-Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said that the missile system could be installed on all vessels and announced that it would become operational in the near future.
