Iran’s military introduced Rezvan, a new surface-to-surface ballistic missile during a parade in capital Tehran on September 22.

Military parades were held on Thursday across the country and in the Persian Gulf waters to mark the Sacred Defense Week, which marks the anniversary of the 1980-88 Iraq-imposed war.

Rezvan is a liquid-fuel single-stage missile with a detachable warhead that has a range of up to 1,400km. It can be launched from a variety of fixed and mobile platforms, as per local media.

During the parades, a missile system, dubbed Khaybar Shekan, was also put on display. This missile has a range of 1,450km. It is reportedly among third-generation long-range missiles indigenously developed and manufactured by military experts at the IRGC’s Aerospace Division. It uses solid propellants and is said to be capable of penetrating into missile shields with high maneuverability during its landing stage.
