UNITED STATES OF ISLAM ARMY

IRAN DOES NOT NEED TO JUSTIFY DEVELOPMENT OF ITS MILITARY INDUSTRIAL CAPABILITIES AS EVERY NATION NEEDS TO BE PREPARED FOR SELF DEFENCE. THE ANIMOSITY AND HOSTILITY OF NONMUSLIM POWERS TO EVERY SUCCESS BY MUSLIM POWERS TO DEVELOP WEOPONS TO MATCH THEM IS MET BY SANCTIONS.  THE ASSUMPTION IS THAT ONLY THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEVELOP AND USE THESE WEOPONS. HOW SHOULD THE UMMAH DEAL WITH THIS?  THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE QURAN IN SURAH HADID IS THE ONLY GUIDANCE MUSLIM DEFENCE MINISTERS SHOULD HEED AND KUFR ARROGANCE SHOULD BE DISMISSED. THERE SHOULD BE AN INTENSIFICATION OF THESE EFFORTS IN ORDER THAT THE ENEMIES OF ISLAM REALISE THAT THE DAYS OF THEIR DOMINANCE IS ENDING OVER MUSLIMS AND MUSLIM LANDS. IN A WORLD OF PREDATORY NONMUSLIM POWERS IN WHICH THE DOCTRINE OF MIGHT IS RIGHT IS  ENSHRINED MUSLIM NATIONS NEED TO GO MUCH FURTHER AND DEVELOP AN AXIS OF RESISTANCE AND A MUTUAL DEFENCE PACT AND ALLIANCE AKA NATO's MILITARY DOCTRINE . ULTIMATELY WE CAN NOT RELY AND DO NOT NEED TO RELY ON OTHERS. WE NEED TO DEVELOP A MODERN DOCTRINE OF JIHAD TO REVERSE THE ANTIISLAMIC GLOBAL IMPERIALISTS AGENDA.  MORE ATTENTION WILL BE PAID TO THIS.   

IRAN UNVEILS UNDERGROUND BALLISTIC MISSILE PLANT FOR IST TIME 
https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/02/07/587967/Iran-unveils-underground-ballistic-missile-plant-IRGC-Europe-United-States

Iran has unveiled an underground plant manufacturing precision ballistic missiles for the Aerospace Division of its Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC). 

“Unveiling this missile production city deep underground is an answer to the idle talk made by the Westerners, who assume they can restrict us and dissuade us from [pursuing] our long-term goals by means of threats and sanctions,” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, the IRGC’s chief commander, said during the unveiling ceremony on Thursday.

The ceremony, which was joined by the commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Division, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, also featured the inauguration of a smart surface-to-surface missile dubbed Dezful.

“Today, the mass production of advanced precision and smart missiles became a reality within the IRGC’s aerospace force,” Jafari hailed.

Iran’s defense program not open to negotiation
Elsewhere in his remarks, Jafari said that Iran’s defense might was in line with the country’s deterrence doctrine and was by no means open to negotiations.

“Iran’s defensive capability is deterrent [in nature] and in line with preserving its national security, and it cannot be subjected to any transaction or negotiation,” the commander asserted.

He said the country declares possession of full defensive might on the eve of the 40th anniversary of the victory of its Islamic Revolution.

Jafari also especially addressed European countries’ demands from the country to start negotiations over its missile program before the Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges (INSTEX) comes into force. INSTEX is a non-dollar payment mechanism, which European countries have announced to safeguard trade with Iran in the face of the United States’ sanctions targeting the Islamic Republic.

“Today, the Europeans are talking of imposing restrictions and sanctions on our defensive capability, while egregiously, their offensive capability is being used to attack the oppressed and innocent people throughout the world,” he said. “But, we proudly enhance our defensive capability and are not afraid of anything,” the commander stated.

National security a red line
Hajizadeh, meanwhile, described national security as the Iranian Armed Forces’ red line, saying the Dezful missile was the latest outcome of the Aerospace Division’s research activities. Describing the projectile’s features, he compared the success achieved through its production to that of the Zolfaqar ballistic missile, whose mass production the country began in September 2016. However, Dezful’s range reaches 1,000 kilometers, 300 kilometers above Zolfaqar, and its destructive capability is twice the latter’s “given the special materials used in its warhead,” the commander said.

Hajizadeh also addressed European countries’ recent comments about Iran’s missile might. Those comments included France’s calling on Iran last month to “immediately cease all ballistic missile-related activities designed to carry nuclear weapons, including tests using ballistic missile technology.”  Iranian authorities have invariably asserted that the country’s missile program has not been established for non-conventional purposes and is only meant as part of the country's deterrence capability.

Tehran welcomes the European Union’s “positive positions” on the 2015 nuclear deal outlined in a 12-point statement, but criticizes issues raised about its defense program and regional role.


The commander reminded that European countries had provided various forms of arms support to the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during his 1980-1988 invasion of Iran.

“They should be answerable for their support for Saddam and crimes against the Iranian nation,” he said, adding, “We do not trust the Europeans, and it is better for them not to sacrifice themselves for [US President Donald] Trump.”

He was apparently referring to European countries’ echoing Washington’s stance concerning the Islamic Republic and their trying to similarly exercise pressure on Tehran.

IRAN AMONG WORLD’s TOP MISSILE POWERS : DEFENSE MINISTER 
https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/12/0...s-missiles

Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami says the Islamic Republic is currently one of the world’s topmost missile powers despite being subject to severe sanctions during the past 40 years.

“Today, Iran is among the world’s topmost powers in building missiles, radars, armored vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs),” the Iranian defense minister said in an exclusive interview with IRNA on Sunday, emphasizing that Iran's defense power is meant to send the message of peace and friendship to other nations.

"Iran has managed to attain a very desirable and acceptable performance in the field of defensive products and the Defense Ministry has become self-sufficient in defense industry despite tough sanctions [imposed] by the [global] arrogant system in 40 years," he added.

The Iranian defense chief further said the inauguration of the production line of the Kowsar fighter jet at Iran Aircraft Manufacturing Industrial Company in Isfahan Province last month proved that sanctions are ineffective.

On November 3, Iran launched the mass production of the fourth-generation all-indigenous interceptor jet, Kowsar, in a major step toward the renovation of its Air Force.

Iran has launched the mass production of a fourth-generation all-indigenous interceptor jet in a major step toward the renovation of its Air Force.


The aircraft, which has been designed to provide logistical support for ground operations, boasts advanced maneuvering capability and can be fitted with various projectiles.

It enjoys integrated design, an avionic and fire control system linked with digital military data network, a ballistic calculations computer system, head-up display (HUD), which focuses visual data in front of the pilot’s sight, a multi-purpose radar, and an independent radio navigation system.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian defense minister said the country's Armed Forces currently enjoy high deterrent power and full defensive preparedness.

He noted that the Iranian Defense Ministry's strategy is to update defensive equipment used by the Armed Forces by turning to domestic capacities and refraining from relying on other countries.

Over the past years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing military equipment and hardware despite sanctions and economic pressures on the country.

The Islamic Republic maintains that its military power poses no threat to other countries and is merely attentive to its military doctrine of deterrence.

Despite tough and cruel sanctions imposed by the United States against the Islamic Republic, Iran held the 9th Iran Airshow on the southern island of Kish in the Persian Gulf late in November.

According to the airshow secretary, Bijan Bonakdar, 105 Iranian and 10 foreign companies participated in the four-day event.

He said the participants are showcasing their latest achievements in the sectors of aviation and aerospace at a time when the US is exerting mounting pressure on other countries to abide by its policies on Iran.

Many experts believe that holding of the 9th Iran Airshow at a time that the administration of US President Donald Trump has reinstated unilateral sanctions against Iran is a clear sign that the sanctions have failed to have any impact on the Islamic Republic's progress in different fields, nor on its relations with other countries.



IRAN UNVEILS NEW CRUISE MISSILE ON ISLAMIC REVOLUTION ANNIVERSARY 
Defence Minister Hatami calls the Hoveizeh missile the 'long arm of the Islamic Republic of Iran' in defending itself

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/02/i...30014.html

Iran announced the "successful test" of a new cruise missile with a range of over 1,350 kilometres during celebrations marking the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, state television reported. 

"The test of the Hoveizeh cruise missile was carried out successfully at a range of 1,200km and accurately hit the set target," Defence Minister Amir Hatami was quoted by saying after its launch.

"It can be ready in the shortest possible time and flies at a very low altitude," he said, describing the Hoveizeh as the "long arm of the Islamic Republic of Iran" in defending itself.

It is part of the Soumar group of cruise missile, first unveiled in 2015 with a range of 700km, according to the minister. 

The Hoveizeh unveiling was part of an arms exhibition titled "40 years of defensive achievements" held in Tehran. Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Revolutionary Guards' aerospace division, said at the unveiling that Iran had overcome initial problems in producing jet engines for cruise missiles and could now manufacture a full range of the weapons. The Defence Ministry's website carried an undated video purportedly showing the Hoveizeh being test-fired from a mobile launcher.
Expanded missile programme

Since agreeing to a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, Iran has expanded its missile programme despite warnings from the United StatesIn January, it tried to launch a satellite into space which it said failed. The launch followed a US warning to Iran against undertaking three planned rocket launches that Washington said would violate a UN Security Council resolution. The resolution, which enshrined Iran's nuclear deal, called upon Tehran to refrain for up to eight years from work on ballistic missiles designed to deliver nuclear weapons.
Iran says its missile tests are not in violation of the resolution and denies its missiles are capable of carrying nuclear warheads. It says its missiles are defensive and used for deterrence and has rejected talks over its missile programme. US President Donald Trump quit the deal last year and reimposed sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the pact in return for Tehran curbing its nuclear programme.


Washington says although Iran has met the terms, the accord was too generous, failing to rein in Iran's ballistic missile programme or curb what the US says is interference in regional affairs. Iran has developed a large domestic arms industry in the face of decades-long international sanctions and embargoes that have barred it from importing most weapons. Separately, Tehran has voluntarily limited the range of its missiles to 2,000km, sufficient to reach Israel and Western bases in the Middle East.



ROUHANI UNVEILS IRAN's CRUISE MISSILE EQUIPPED FATEH SUBMARINE 
Vessel equipped with modern guided-missile system and is capable of operating underwater for up to five weeks.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has unveiled a "state-of-the-art" domestically produced submarine, which the defence ministry said is capable of firing cruise missiles. Rouhani is in the southern province of Hormozgan on Sunday to introduce the latest addition of the naval fleet. Dubbed the Fateh, or Conqueror, it is the country's first semi-heavy submarine, according to Mehr news agency.

In his speech to thousands of supporters at the port city of Bandar Lengeh before the submarine launch, Rouhani warned against the division in the country, saying that is the goal of Iran's enemies.  "We will not bow down to the hegemonic power. We are ready to sacrifice ourselves and spill our blood to protect Iran," he said.

Mehr news reported that the 600-tonne submarine launched on Sunday is equipped with torpedoes and naval mines, and can operate more than 200m below sea level for up to five weeks. Tasnim news agency added that the Fateh is also outfitted with a guided-missile system capable of launching submarine-launched cruise missiles and an advanced sonic radar system that can identify enemy vessels.

"The Fateh is entirely a homegrown submarine that is designed and developed by experts of the defence ministry and is equipped with the world's modern technologies," Brigadier General Amir Hatami, the defence minister, was quoted by Tasnim on Saturday as saying.
The Fateh is the latest addition to Iran's fleet of submarines, which was first launched about 20 years ago.

Hossein Dalirian, a defence reporter for Tasnim news agency, noted in a social media post that the latest submarine is one of the most important projects Iran's military have undertaken in the last 40 years. Another Tehran-based security analyst, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the topic, noted that the submarine's vertical launching system.  He said it is a "very important news" as only a few countries have the kind of "advance system". He also said that 1,300-tonne and 3,200-tonne submarines are also in the production agenda of the armed forces. "With four torpedoes, Fateh has the fastest firing system," the analyst said, adding that the vessel is also equipped with four torpedo boats, eight mines and two reserve torpedoes, aside from the cruise missiles.


In the past, Iran had bought three submarines from Russia. But because of the low depth of the waters off Iran, it became difficult to manouever those vessels, prompting the Iranian Navy to design and launch its own line of submarine in 2006, the analyst said. The commander-in-chief of the Iranian Navy, Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi, has been quoted as saying that the Fateh submarine will be used to carry out a mission in the Oman Sea.  


'Deterrent factor'

The move is the latest show of military strength by Iran, as it marks the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution at a time of heightened tensions with the United States.  Maysam Bizar, a Tehran-based journalist and political observer, said that while it is an "old tradition" in Iran to launch new military equipment during the anniversary of the revolution, Sunday's unveiling of the submarine takes a more significant meaning. "There are definitely messages, which are being conveyed to Washington, DC," Bizar told Al Jazeera, saying it could well be a "deterrent factor" by Iran against US warships in the region.


The US and other European countries have repeatedly warned against Iran's missile programme. The US has claimed that the missiles are capable of carrying nuclear warheads. Iran's missile programme is not covered by the 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers, and Tehran insists that it is purely for defensive purposes. UN nuclear inspectors have also said that Iran is not pursuing any nuclear weapons and has continued to abide by the nuclear agreement. Since the US decision to withdraw from the 2015 deal and reimpose sanctions, Iran has ramped up its missile development.


Earlier this month, Iran announced that it successfully tested a new cruise missile, Hoveizeh, with a range of up to 1,350km.  Days later, it also unveiled a surface-to-surface missile, the Dezful, with a shorter range of 1,000km.  Iran has so far set a 2,000km limit to its missiles - a range capable of reaching Israel and Western military bases in the Middle East, but not the US. According to experts, an Iranian missile requires a 10,000km range to reach the US. The US has pointed to these recent missile activities in its efforts to convince Europe and other countries to withdraw from the nuclear deal. But Europe has resisted the pressure, saying that staying within the nuclear deal gives it more diplomatic leverage to convince Iran to curb its missile programme.
