Iran Displays Underground Missile Silos in Army Exhibition
The Iranian Army displayed its latest military achievements, including underground missile launch-pads, in an exhibition in the Northern Iranian city of Noshahr.
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei visited the exhibition of the Army's technical, defense, combat and scientific achievements and activities.
Research drones equipped with laser system capability and subsurface remote-controlled Taha reconnaissance vessels were among the achievements on display in the exhibition.
The underground missile silo, dubbed as Jask-2, with the capability of launching missiles from underground launch-pads against surface targets were among the other achievements of the Iranian army displayed in the exhibition.
In July 2011, Iran announced that it has conducted a successful test of hitting mobile naval targets in international waters by three hi-tech and radar-evading missiles.
The missile drills conducted by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in late June 2011 demonstrated that Iran has made some huge progress in missile technology.
During the first stage of the drills the IRGC unveiled an underground missile launch pad.
According to senior commanders of the IRGC Aerospace Force, Iranian experts have been busy with developing the technology and infrastructures for the underground silos for the last 15 years.
The pads have the capability to launch different types of missiles, including long-range Shahab class missiles.
