Iran Unveils New Ballistic Missile That Could Destroy US Bases In The Gulf (Pix) by Macsjebs: 5:24am On Oct 01, 2020
IRAN has unveiled its latest naval ballistic missile which doubles its military strike range and is capable of destroying US bases in the Gulf.

State-backed Press TV published a video on wednesday showing the third generation Zolfaqar-e Basir rocket.

According to the report, the weapon can travel 434 miles - which more than doubles the country's current missile range.

The US, which has accused Iran of exporting terrorism across the Middle East, has a number of military bases in the region including in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman, Iraq, Kuwait and the UAE.

And because the Persian Gulf is up to 210 miles wide, the new Iranian rocket could destroy targets from anywhere in the area.

Commander Major General Hossein Salami, head of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, said the weapon was developed despite the crippling economic sanctions imposed by US President Donald Trump.


He said: "The war underway today is one of willpower.

"The Iranian nation continues down this path with conviction by clearly recognising its way forward."

He said Iran was fully prepared for war with the Unites States adding Tehran had used the sanctions as "an opportunity for expeditious advancement in the defensive areas."

The second generation of the surface-to-surface Zolfaqar-e Basir was used to attack US troops at Ain al-Assad air base in Iraq, it has been reported.

That assault was retaliation for the killing of Major General Qassem Soleimani in a drone strike ordered by Trump outside Baghdad airport.

The assassination of Soleimani in January drastically ramped up tensions between the US and Iran and led to Tehran pulling out the Obama-era nuclear deal it had signed with western powers.

Iran proving it could and would deliver precision missile strikes on the heads of the aggressors anywhere in the middle east. Continue to exercise your sovereign right Iran. Deterrence is key.

Macsjebs, with all due respect, man please take down this post.

I know you are at liberty to post whatever it is that you wish to post but I am getting fed up with the Iranians and their boasts already.

The last time they had an opportunity to atomize US military bases in the Gulf and Middle East, what did they do?

They simply ended up firing into blank spaces and the best result they got was giving a few US servicemen headaches and trauma here and there.

And now, they are showcasing new weapons that can take out US military bases in the Gulf? Jokers. I stopped taking them seriously after seeing their reaction to General Q. Soleimani's death.

Right now, my focus is on where the real action is at the moment- Armenia vs Azerbaijan.

All these display of rockets don't quite do it for me since the people displaying them won't be using them any time soon. sad

I hope you understand me.

Do they even have a safe place to stockpile their obsolete rockets before the Israelis infiltrates and set them on fire.

Well, Iran has repeatedly said it does not want war but would retaliate should the bully/aggressor attack them and i think they gave America a proportionate response in the January 8 attack by hurling missiles at U.S military bases in Iraq.

They passed a clear message letting the U.S know that they won't allow any attack go without a response. If Iran didn't do that America would have done worse after the killing of Soleimani.

Do you know what it means to attack a U.S military base injuring over 100 troops and all president Trump could do was bark and bark on twitter even after he had promised the Iranians hell and brimstone should they retaliate the killing of that General.

If U.S had taken a step further to escalate the incident after Iran retaliated, Iran too would have responded in kind. Confront a bully then that bully would think twice before messing with you next time.

All these people and assumption ehh.

The US as it is,is undefeatable by whatsoever Iran has.

It's even an insult, measuring the both on war scale. America vs Iran is likened to champagne vs palm wine.

I understand that you (bloggers) create controversial trends in order to generate traffic,yea I know, it's part of the hustle cool...

United States unveils its own during the WAR and not necessarily during showbiz.
So IRAN should be mindful of what it's inviting.
Hope it understands that the US only unveils its weaponry after many mass casualties..?

I think IRAN should focus more on its OWN GOALS than all these...
