Iran unveiled a new next-generation short-range ballistic missile, dubbed Fateh Mobin (Bright Conqueror), in Tehran on Monday.
Fateh Mobin is reportedly a new variant of the Fateh-110 single-stage solid-propellant, surface-to-surface tactical ballistic missile.
“As promised to our dear people, we will not spare any effort to increase the missile capabilities of the country and we will certainly increase our missile power every day,” Defence Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami was quoted by conservative Tasnim News Agency.
The minister said the new generation of Fateh, an agile, radar-evading and tactical missile with pinpoint accuracy, has been fully designed by the local experts and successfully test-fired.
“The Fateh Mobin missile is of the precision kind, very resistant against electronic warfare. It can operate in various, diverse spaces, in any environment,” the Brigadier General said. “Be sure that the greater the pressures and psychological warfare against the great nation of Iran, our will to enhance our defense power in all fields will increase”.
While the new missile’s range was not announced, previous models had a range of 200 to 300 km (120 – 190 miles).
