Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has successfully test-fired the country’s latest domestically-manufactured anti-aircraft missile system.


Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards corps (IRGC) displayed the country’s latest domestically-manufactured Ra'd anti-aircraft missile system on September 21, 2012.

The mid-range missile system, called Ra'd, is equipped with Taer 2 missiles and can intercept targets at a range of 50 kilometers and fly at an altitude of 75,000 feet.

The indigenous system has been manufactured to confront advanced US jet fighters.
The IRGC on Friday displayed Ra’d air defense system during the parade of the Iranian Armed Forces in the capital city, Tehran, marking the 32nd anniversary of eight years of defense against Iraq's invasion of the country under executed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

Ra’d is the optimized version of the Russian-made Buk surface-to-air missile system.

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in the defense sector and gained self-sufficiency in essential military hardware and defense systems, proving that the US-led illegal sanctions on the Iranian military industry have been ineffective.

Iran has repeatedly stated that its military might poses no threat to other countries, reiterating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
