Iran deploys large numbers of missile launchers

Tehran, May 26 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Iran has deployed "large numbers" of new long-range missile launchers, the country's semi-official news agency Fars reported Sunday.

The new ground-to-ground missile launchers would enable Iran's armed forces to "mightily crush any invading enemy and will make him regretful of his deeds", said Iranian Defence Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi.

The report did not specify, however, the type of new weapons or their number.

The Iranian defence industries were now capable of producing different home-made weapons and military systems in aerospace, naval, air, ground, electronic and optic fields, he said.
