Iran Boasts New Missile System

Iran on Sunday introduced a new ballistic missile system, which the government said in a statement would be used by the Revolutionary Guards. In a statement, the government said that the new missile showed Iran's ability to mass-produce its own weapons.

“The mass production of the Qiyam missile, the first without stabilizer fins, shows the slamic Republic of Iran's self-sufficiency in producing various types of missiles,” Iran's Defense MinisterAhmad Vahidi was quoted as saying in state media. No details were released about the range of the system.
