'Iran develops system to distract missiles'

11 February 2010 [09:55] - TODAY.AZ
A senior Iranian commander has announced that the country has developed a new system to distract missiles.
Deputy Commander of Iran's Air Force Gen. Seyyed Mohammad Alavi said that the system prevents missiles from hitting their targets.

He stated that Iran's Air Force has made great achievements in the production of smart ammunition and long-range weapons.

Alavi noted that Iran will mass-produce the new weapons and ammunition to boost its deterrence.

Earlier in February, the Air Force announced that it has successfully tested the prototype of its first domestically-built stealth drone.

"The drone, due to its physical attributes and the material used in its body, cannot be detected by any radar," Air Force Brigadier General Aziz Nasirzadeh said.
