TEHRAN, (BM) – Navy chief Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi announced the mass production of the Jask rocket during a visit to an exhibit on Saturday showing some of Tehran’s latest achievements, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, quoting Topwar.
According to him, all submarines of the forces will be equipped with this weapons. Moreover, it is expected that the range of the rocket will be “significantly” increased in the future.
The commander added that weapons developed as part of the Jask-2 project would allow the Navy to hit targets over long distances. As he explained, the rocket “will certainly be a serious surprise for the enemy.”
Another project, dubbed “Jask-3,” is under development, Hanzhan said. Thanks to him, it will be possible to use a wider range of missiles in submarines.
