Iran Transfers Batch of Emad Missiles to New Underground Missile base. (Fars).
Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani made a visit to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)'s new underground missile town today during which he vowed the legislature would allocate a much bigger budget to the country's missile program.
The Images and footages released after the visit indicated that the IRGC has transferred a large number of Emad missiles to the deep underground base.
It is the second underground missile town that Iran is displaying in the past few months.
Iran in October unveiled a deep underground tunnel facility packed with missiles and launcher units a few days after testing the long-range Emad missile.
After unveiling the underground depot for the first time, IRGC Lieutenant Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami said, "That was one of our oldest stockpiles and we haven’t yet shown our modern missile depots, where missiles with big cross sections have been stockpiled."
Also in November, a senior advisor to the IRGC Quds Force commander announced that Iran is in possession of 14 missile depots in the depth of 30m to 500m under the ground in different parts of the country that are equipped with automatic launchers.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran has 14 underground depots in the depth of 30m to 500m," Brigadier-General Karimpour said.
He warned that any country that dares to attack Iran will be riddled with missiles fired from these depots in large numbers automatically.
