Commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh told reporters that the new missile has been designed and manufactured by the defense ministry.

"Khorramshahr ballistic missile has a range of 2,000 kilometers with ability to carry multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRV) within a range of 1,800 kilometers" he told reporters in Tehran today.

"The specification of this missile is that it can carry several warheads instead of one to hit several targets," General Hajizadeh said, adding that the missile has been manufactured in a smaller and more tactical size and will be put into operation in the near future.

Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the defense sphere.
