(MENAFN) The Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) of Iran has introduced its latest achievement in missile technology, the Fattah hypersonic missile. Boasting a remarkable range of 1400 kilometers and an astonishing speed equivalent to 13 times the speed of sound (Mach 13) or approximately 16,000 kilometers per hour, this advanced missile showcases Iran's significant progress in the field. Equipped with a solid fuel spherical motor and a movable nozzle, the Fattah missile possesses exceptional maneuverability in all directions.
The development and production of hypersonic missiles mark a momentous milestone for Iran and have far-reaching implications in the realm of missile defense. The extraordinary speed of the Fattah missile poses a formidable challenge for anti-missile defense systems, rendering their interception efforts considerably more difficult and less effective. This technological breakthrough reinforces Iran's position as a formidable player in the arms race and presents a significant threat to potential adversaries.
While speed is a crucial aspect of hypersonic missiles, the trajectory and guidance system play equally vital roles in their effectiveness. Iran's focus on improving the accuracy and power of its ballistic missiles, which already achieved the desired range of 2000 kilometers, has led to significant advancements in precision, guidance, and control. The Fattah missile family, which now includes the latest addition, Fattah, stands out as the most accurate missile family in Iran's arsenal due to its unique "guidance until the end of the trajectory" capability.
The introduction of hypersonic Fattah missiles further enhances the capabilities of this missile family, as they combine high speed with exceptional maneuverability. This development poses a significant challenge to both American and Zionist defense systems, making it increasingly difficult for them to counter the threat effectively. With the fusion of speed, accuracy, and maneuverability, Iran solidifies its position as a formidable force in the region, capable of striking its targets with precision while evading enemy defenses.
The unveiling of the Fattah hypersonic missile represents a major breakthrough for Iran and signals a new era in missile technology. This achievement underscores Iran's commitment to advancing its defense capabilities and serves as a deterrent against potential adversaries. The Fattah missile's exceptional speed, maneuverability, and accuracy pose significant challenges to the effectiveness of anti-missile defense systems, reshaping the strategic landscape in the region and beyond.
