Iran, solid-fuel hypersonic missile and super drone: the parade shows its muscles

Iran shows its muscles to the world during Sacred Defense week that celebrates the anniversary of the start of the so-called “imposed war” against Saddam Hussein’s Iraq in the 1980s. It does so with a parade that began in the south of Tehran , in the mausoleum dedicated to the founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini. All security forces of the Islamic Republic took part in the parade, reports the Mehr news agency: from the police to the army, from the Revolutionary Guard forces to the Basij and border guards. President Ebrahim Raisi is also present at the ceremony.

During the event, two of Iran’s main missile models, the ‘Fattah’ and the ‘Paveh’, were displayed. The first is the new precision-guided two-stage solid-fuel hypersonic missile with a range of 1,400 kilometers and speeds between Mach 13 and 15. The speed, along with the ability to maneuver the missile in and out of the Earth’s atmosphere makes it immune to all existing anti-missile systems. The ‘Paveh’ is a new long-range cruise missile that can travel up to 1,650 kilometers.

Iran, according to official media, showed during the parade that “the world’s longest-range drone” was also broadcast live. This would be the Mohajer-10, an unmanned aircraft that has improved range and flight duration: the Mohajer-10 has an operational range of 2,000 kilometers, can fly for up to 24 hours and is capable of carrying a payload of 300 kilograms.
