Iran’s Defence Minister Amir Hatami together with the Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh unveiled a new generation of Soumar long-range ground-to-ground cruise missile named Hoveyzeh in Tehran on Saturday.

“We live in a world in which some rulers do not pay attention to the nations’ rights, the nations’ sovereignty, their votes and are not committed to any agreements and international laws,” said Hatami as he explained the necessity of improving Iran’s defence line against such international violations.

Hatami also touched upon the missile’s unique capabilities such as its short pre-launch preparation time, its lower flying altitude and its warhead strength.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Only time will show whether there is any substance in the claims. Not the first presentation by Iran of a new weapon, never to be heard of again.
