BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 A.M.) – The Iranian military is developing a new underwater missile system for their naval forces, a commander from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) told Press TV on Saturday.

According to the IRGC Navy Commander, Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri, the Iranian military was developing an underwater warfare system for the first time in its existence.

“God willing, that (the unveiling) will take place in IRGC Navy’s upcoming drills,” Takgsiri told the Iranian Tasnim news agency, adding, “The underwater domain is one of our necessities which we should aspire to.”

The commander added that some new underwater weapons and systems will be unveiled in the future drills.

The admiral further elaborated on IRGC Navy’s “total readiness” to respond to threats, saying the force was carefully watching all the activities by extra-regional enemies who are present in Middle East waters.

“Our intelligence and operational forces have under their watch any slightest provocation by the enemies,” he said.

One can unveil anthing, that does not say it will work. Reminds me of the unveiling of an Iranian 5th generation fighter plane. Never heard of it afterwards.
