Iran has developed an anti-cruise missile system, state-run Press TV reported on Sunday. Announcing the latest milestone in the domestic military industrial achievements, Air Force Brigadier General Ahmad Miqani said, "[Despite] 30 years of military sanctions by the enemy, the armed forces have taken appropriate steps toward self-sufficiency and have been able not only to update their equipment, but also to achieve wide-ranging progress in the military and aerospace sector." The Khatam al-Anbiya Air Base, which operates under the supervision General Miqani, is the unitary supreme body coordinating and overseeing the nationwide defense of Iran's airspace. Miqani listed ongoing improvements of existing systems, domestic construction of tens of anti-aircraft artillery pieces at a level that is comparable with latest international systems, construction of air defense missiles, and active and passive radars. "Today, we are able not only to identify stealth cruise missiles, but also to destroy them," he elaborated on Press TV.
