After the US military’s statement, Iran equipped its navy with drones and missiles
Iran and the US are fighting for control over the Persian Gulf. Iran armed its navy with drones and missiles after the US military announced that it was deploying armed guards on merchant ships passing through the Strait of Hormuz.
IRGC Navy Commander Ali Raza Tangsari told state TV on Saturday that the new missiles have better accuracy and longer range.
Commander Ali Raza said that cruise missiles can attack multiple targets simultaneously and commands can be changed after take-off.
It should be noted that in view of the continued escalation of tensions with the United States in the Strait of Hormuz, Iran has equipped its Revolutionary Guards Navy with drones and missiles with a range of 1,000 kilometers (600 miles).
Iran’s official news agency IRNA says that the IRGC’s weapons include various types of drones. Several hundred cruise and ballistic missiles with ranges of 300 to 1,000 km are among the systems and equipment that will enhance the Navy’s capabilities.
Iran’s move to equip its navy with drones and missiles comes after the US military said it could deploy armed guards on merchant ships passing through the Strait of Hormuz.
The U.S. military said in a statement that it was considering deploying armed personnel on commercial ships passing through the vital strait to prevent Iran from seizing a number of civilian vessels.
It should be noted that the Strait of Hormuz is the only sea route for the oil exports of the Gulf states. The Strait of Hormuz is an important strait between the Gulf of Oman and the Persian Gulf. It has Iran on its northern shores and the United Arab Emirates and Oman on its southern shores. This strait is at least 21 miles wide.
Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi, the spokesman of the Iranian armed forces, has mentioned the possible presence of US defenders and said that the countries of the region are fully capable of defending their territorial waters.
