The new missile, a new modification of the Fateh-110 “Conqueror” solid-propellant surface-to-surface missile dubbed the Al-Mobeen (“The Divine Conquest”), was unveiled on Monday by Iranian Defence Minister Brig Gen. Amir Hatami.
Minister Hatami attended to the presentation ceremony to congratulate the army and military designers with the completion of the work on the new missile.
US media outlets reported on Friday that the US intelligence had detected Iran’s first test of the Fateh ballistic missile this year. The missile was launched from the base of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in the country’s southeast. The missile flew more than 160 km over the Strait of Hormuz to a practice range in a desert on Iranian territory.
Created by the Defense Ministry's Aerospace Industries Organization, the stealthy missile is said to be capable of hitting both sea and ground-based targets. On other hand, geometry of missile creates doubts about its stealth capability.
