TEHRAN: Iran has developed a hypersonic missile capable of penetrating all defence systems, General Amirali Hajizadeh, the commander of its Revolutionary Guards aerospace unit, said Thursday.

Hypersonic missiles, like traditional ballistic missiles which can deliver nuclear weapons, can fly more than five times the speed of sound.

“This hypersonic ballistic missile was developed to counter air defence shields,” Hajizadeh said, quoted by Iran’s Fars news agency.

“It will be able to breach all the systems of anti-missile defence,” said the general, adding that he believed it would take decades before a system capable of intercepting it is developed.

“This missile, which targets enemy anti-missile systems, represents a great generational leap in the field of missiles.”

The announcement comes days after Iran admitted sending drones to Russia, but denied doing so since Russia invaded Ukraine.

The Washington Post reported on October 16 that Iran was preparing to ship missiles to Russia, but Tehran rejected the report as “completely false”.

Unlike ballistic missiles, hypersonic missiles fly on a trajectory low in the atmosphere, potentially reaching targets more quickly.

Iran calls for deeper energy, trade ties with Russia

North Korea’s test of a hypersonic missile last year sparked concerns about a race to acquire the technology.

Russia currently leads the race to develop the missiles, followed by China and the United States.

A hypersonic missile is manoeuvrable, making it harder to track and defend against.

While countries like the United States have developed systems designed to defend against cruise and ballistic missiles, the ability to track and take down a hypersonic missile remains a question.

"“It will be able to breach all the systems of anti-missile defence,” said the general" I HAVE HEARD THIS LINE BEFORE ! https://www.pbs.org/newshour/world/putin-says-russia-is-leading-the-world-in-hypersonic-weapons WONDERBAR ! COINCIDENCE ! NEXT STE[P ? IS IT NUKE PAYLOAD ? NEIN ! NUKE POWERED HYPERSONIC ! BASICS OF NATO ADS AND ISRAELI ADS LOW FLYING MISSILE TO EVADE GBR SPEED OF MACH 5 PLUS,SO THAT THE COST OF ADS ERROR, IS CATASTROPHIC, AND ADS WILL NEED TO DEPLOY MUTIPLE MISSILES/DRONES, TO KILL INCOMING MISSILE CHANGE IN TRAJECTORY,EVERY 1-2 SECONDS, WHICH MEANS THAT THE GBR/ABR WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MAP THE TRAJECTORY,AND EVEN ,A SWARM OF ADS MISSILES/DRONES,WILL NOT BE ABLE TO KILL - AS THE TRAJECTORY,CANNOT BE TARGETTED CHANGE IN TRAJECTORY,MEANS FUEL IS USED MORE, AND THE DISTANCE IS REDUCED. HENCE,COMES IN NUKE POWER HYPERSONIC - WHICH WILL HAVE ICBM RANGE + LOW HEIGHT + CHANGES IN TRAJECTORY + CAN CARRY NUKE PAY LOAD ! WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF ISRAEL ? dindooohindoo

If the US doesn’t have hypersonic missiles, it can’t create and export defence systems to protect against it. While its troublesome for its MENA allies, the immediate concern is the loitering drone that Iran provided Russia to use against Ukraine. The US is seemingly oblivious about how to deal with that threat, which has turned the entire war around in Russia’s favor, leading to a genocidal catastrophe in Kyiv. The Ukrainians would have to relocate close to 4.5 million people from Kyiv to Lviv or even inside the EU to survive the winter. The EU is already facing a recession and an energy supply shortage. Pro-Iranian lobbies in the West are to blame for this in its entirety. They made sure that being critical of Iran in the past 2 decades amounted to extremism and terrorism. In fact, they created such terrorist groups only to equate critics of the Iranian regime with them. They must be celebrating today as they’ve achieved their goals today, veiled in “superior” humanistic values.
