Iran has unveiled a new surface-to-air missile and two radar systems it claims will boost the country’s defense capabilities.
Air defense chief Gen. Farzad Esmaili says the missile will enable Iranian forces to “shoot down any hostile target,” even at high altitudes.
He says the Talash-3, or Endeavor-3 missile was successfully test-fired recently. Esmaili’s speech was broadcast on state TV on Tuesday.
