June 27, 2011 22:32

Iran unveiled underground ballistic missile silos for the first time on Monday in a warning to the world of its ability to protect its missiles and secretly store them in hidden locations throughout the country.

State TV broadcast footage of several military officers touring an underground silo that was holding a Shahab 3 ballistic missile. The Shahab 3 has a range of some 2,000 kilometers, putting Israel within its reach but is powered by liquid fuel which means that it needs to be fueled close to launch.
