A senior Iranian commander said on Tuesday that the country has successfully tested a domestically-manufactured state-of-the-art Talaash (Endeavor) medium to long-range missile defense system.
The Commander of Iran’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili said Iran finalized the Talaash medium-range missile defense system during the last Iranian calendar year (ended March 20, 2015).
Esmaili reiterated that the Talaash missile defense system was successfully tested with the medium to long-range capacity this year.
In recent years, Iran has made great strides in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured other countries that its military might poses no threat to other states, saying that its defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
