The new equipment will greatly increase the range and destructive power of the IRGC’s combat units.
All the delivered equipment has been designed and manufactured by competent Iranian specialists working with the Defense Ministry and knowledge-based companies as well as research and self-sufficiency units of the IRGC.

Speaking at the ceremony of joining missile equipment to the IRGC Navy Force, Major General Salami called decline and destruction as the inevitable fate of the global arrogance and the enemies.
He described the heat of jihad and resistance as the most important factor in melting the icebergs of arrogant power, saying: “Great successes are achieved in the light of resistance, jihad, empowerment and getting out of passivism, and construction, expanding and using power in Islamic Iran. It is an interconnectedness that originates from the wills of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.”
“Mechanical, technical, and modern movements also rely on electronic life, and sometimes electronic warfare is a complete level of confrontation, and superiority in this war can disable important part of the enemy’s ability and power,” the Iranian top general noted.
He added: “Communications, information, and other areas are also dependent on electronics, and efforts made in this area means creating a new advantage for us; Praise be to God … Today, Islamic Iran has a lot to say in this area.”
Referring to the fact that Iran’s IRGC has made great technological advances in the field of defense amid sanctions Major General Salami said: “It is important that our defense capabilities are expanding based on domestic capabilities, and today new developments in the field of electronic warfare are one of the components of our power.”
In the end, the IRGC Chief Commander emphasized that Iran’s defense force is fully equipped saying: “We defend our interests, dignity, and honor with authority and we are confident that we will emerge victorious in this holy defense.”
General Salami named the Islamic Revolution of Iran as a source of awareness for the world in the age of modern ignorance and stated: “Despite the alliance of all the oppressors, demons, and arrogant people of the world in the last four decades to defeat the inspirational revolution of the Islamic Republic of Iran, they have achieved nothing but despair, failure, defeat, and exhaustion.”
