Iran has test fired a surface-to-surface missile

ya mahdi (AJ) Adrekni

“Iran has test fired a surface-to-surface missile, according to the country’s defence minister.

Ahmad Vahidi’s announcement comes a day before Iran is scheduled to launch its Russian-built first nuclear power plant in the southern port city of Bushehr.

The words “Ya Mahdi” were written on the side of the missile, referring to Imam Mahdi, one of the 12 imams of Shiite Islam, who disappeared as a boy and whom the faithful believe will return one day to bring redemption to mankind.

“The missile has new technical aspects and has a unique tactical capacity,” he said on state television, adding that the device was of a “new class.”

“Since the surface-to-surface missile has no wings, it has lot of tactical power, which also reduces the chances of it being intercepted,” he said.

ya mahdi:

“…the faithful will be free of cares and troubles when you shall arrive,

and with one strike shall put an end to the intrigues of the infidels.”

China may soon put an end to that.

U.S. naval planners are scrambling to deal with what analysts say is a game-changing weapon being developed by China…”
