Iran’s Armed Forces have unveiled three advanced precision-guided smart bombs, as the Islamic Republic moves to strengthen its defenses in the face of foreign threats.
The domestically-manufactured bombs named “Yasin ياسين,” “Balaban بالابان” and a new series of the Ghaem قائم bombs were unveiled during a ceremony on Tuesday in the presence of Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami سرتيپ امير حاتمي.
Speaking at the event, the Iranian defense chief said Balaban بالابان has folding wings designed to increase its range. It is guided by GPS and sensors and could be mounted under aircraft.
Hatami described Yasin ياسين as a long-range smart, guided bomb that can be fired from a range of 50 kilometers its target from manned or unmanned aircraft.
Ghaem قائم is also a bomb meant for precision strikes and could hit within 50 centimeters of a target, according to the minister.
This type, he added, is equipped with different visible, thermal and cylindrical seekers and can be installed on various drone, helicopters and fighter jets to annihilate their targets.
Hatami further said the latest defense achievements are yet another manifestation of Iran’s power and “showed that the Defense Ministry will never hesitate to defend the Islamic Republic and boost security despite the malice and conspiracies hatched by the Great Satan, America.”
Iran has recently made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing military equipment and hardware despite facing sanctions and Western economic pressure.
The Islamic Republic says its military power is solely for defensive purposes and does not pose any threat to other countries.
