Iran shows two new missiles in a military parade

Iran displayed in Tehran two new missiles during the country's military parade commemorating the anniversary of the start of the 1980-88 Iraq-Iran war. The two missiles, Rezvan and Kheibar Shekan are locally produced and developed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Outer Space Department.



The Rezvan is a medium-range surface-to-surface ballistic missile. The missile is liquid propellant powered and can release its warhead during flight or before impact. Its maximum operating range is 1,400 kilometres (870 miles). In February, the Guards announced that the Kheibar Shekan is capable of hitting targets within a radius of 1,450 kilometres.

The Tasnim News Agency reported that the Rezvan could be launched from both fixed and mobile ground vehicles.
