Iran Built Extensive Underground Missile Complexes Along Its Southern Coast

The Iranian naval forces have developed hundreds of autonomous flotillas including speed boats for its maritime defence

Iran’s Armed Forces have developed extensive underground missile complexes along the country’s southern shores, including the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy has revealed.

Brigadier General Alireza Tangsiri made the remarks in a detailed interview published on Sunday, adding that the fortified underground cities accommodate naval vessels and missile batteries as well as living areas for their operating crews and support units. In the interview Tangsiri stated:

“We have underground cities, which house both vessels and missiles. Our entire shoreline [in southern Iran] is equipped with arms.

But another thing I am going to say with certainty is that we are present everywhere in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman…

This is not just a slogan. We have long-range missiles and they [any potential enemy] should wait to hear further news about long-range missiles and vessels they cannot even imagine.” LINK

Tangsiri acknowledged that Iran’s enemies know that there are underground cities belonging to the Army and the IRGC along the Persian Gulf and Makran coasts, but claimed that they do not have accurate information as to the locations, components and capabilities of the integrated defensive complexes.

He emphasized that the IRGC Navy has full spatial and information command and control in the Persian Gulf and that it monitors the location of every ship passing through the Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz or the Oman Sea.

Tangsiri also noted that the IRGC Navy has formed a marine Basij force, which is stationed along Iran’s 2,200-km coastline in order to protect Iran’s interests in the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz and the Oman Sea. The marine force includes 428 flotillas capable of operating autonomously or jointly, consisting of more than 23,000 military personnel.

The IRGC’s chief commander Major General Hossein Salami warned in April that the Islamic Republic will target US ships if they were to threaten the safety of the country’s vessels or warships.

“We declare to them that we are absolutely determined and serious in defending our national security, maritime borders and interests, and that any move [against us] will be effectively and swiftly met with a decisive, effective response,” Salami said.

In May the IRGC Navy was involved in an incident with US forces in the Persian Gulf as US navy ships entered an area in which the Iranian navy was conducting military exercises despite having been warned in advance not to approach.

Tangsiri said the US forces were confronted and pursued from the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman. “They had entered our training area while it had already been announced that drills would be held there … hence, they were ordered to leave.”

Commenting on the incident, the US Navy Central Command alleged that 11 IRGC vessels had “harassed” up to six US ships in the Persian Gulf, a claim that was rejected by Iranian officials.

The United States has not relented from its campaign of ‘maximum pressure’ against Iran including an economic embargo and strict unilateral financial sanctions imposed against anyone trading with Iran, threatening to intercept Iranian fuel shipments to Venezuela, and conducting menacing military manoeuvres adjacent to Iran’s territorial waters and airspace.

The US has been conducting similar provocative military operations along the maritime borders of Russia, China and Venezuela on a regular basis this year, keeping tensions high with its geopolitical adversaries.

Although it appears that the US has been careful to avoid another direct clash with Iran such as occurred earlier this year when a US drone assassinated IRGC Commander Qasem Soleimani while he was in Baghdad, to which Iran responded with force launching missiles against two US military bases in Iraq, Iran has suffered from a series of suspicious explosions at sensitive military installations over the last few weeks.

    At least we know that $130billion the U.S. gave back to Iran under obongo went for a good cause…

  • AJ

    They also have a lot of mobile launchers for anti ship missiles which would be very difficult to eliminate. I saw a report some time back they also set up fake sites, with fake launchers to confuse an enemy

    • Cromwell

      They would only need to it one or two of those carriers and its game over,the US public would want their boys out of there.

      • occupybacon

        In case of a potential conflict US will not keep its carriers in the Gulf or in Iran’s proximity. It would be enough to sink an oil tanker and the ME oil era is over.

          Bacon kiddie, you are too naive about warfare. Iran is hardly going to go for carriers as the Americunts are not going to go near the Persian Gulf, Iran will hit Pisrael and the Persian Gulf Wahhabi whores like Saudi and UAE cunts with its full might. You kids are so silly.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      It is all taken care of, Iran has over 2 million missiles and rockets now. Even Hezbollah is now approaching 500,000.

      • ruca

        Got any links about the missile numbers?

        • Zionism = EVIL

          There are lots of different figures, but SIPRI is very credible. The Americunt ones are total fantasy and tend to play down Iranian strength and that works in Iran’s favor as there are many surprises coming :)

          • Swift Laggard II

            Iran does not have even ten thousand missiles. The credible figure is between three and five thousand. this is not counting small impact tactical scale rockets. still an impressive amount and the largest ballistic missile force in the region, and perhaps the second biggest on earth surpassed by only China

  • johnny rotten

    For Iran it will be like hunting ducks in a pond, real fun.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Iran’s asymmetrical warfare strategy is unqiue and hybrid, its cornerstone is to take advantage of Iranian nationalism, huge size and resources. Like I have pointed out before the Persian Gulf is 2200 plus kms coastline dotted with caves, coves, inlets, islands and mountains.Around Hormuz there are natural deep cave complexes that Iran has fortified and stationed rapid deployment mobile missile forces. It is basically an industrial sized shoot and scoot strategy. Just on another note, Iran is about to get a massive injection of 4th or perhaps 5th generation aircraft as detailed in the increase in defence budget line items.

        They did the right thing

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Indeed, Iran like Russia has a big advantage of unlimited resources, huge landmass and hyper nationalistic educated population. Geographically the Iranian plateau is a natural fortress that no military can break. The Iranians have learnt a lot lessons over the several millennia of national state. The current doctrine has evolved over time based on taking full advantage of the strategic depth. Iran is geared to fight a unlimited asymmetrical warfare giving its local commanders total decentarlized and regionalized commaned structure with over 200,000 weapons dumps and facilities spread out over Iran, so that they can fight on without any resupply.

          There are 11 major missile cities on the Persian Gulf and over 375 decentralized missile and rocket bases that will set fire to the region in case of hostilities. They are backed up by a armed population and Basij auxiliaries. That makes Iran invulnerable to any invasion. The Iranians will need vulnerable electronic communications as local commanders will take over. It is like Hezbollah multiplied by a million factor.

    Iran ain’t playing

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Iran is signing a STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP agreement with China, which is unique as China’s views Iran as integral to its economic outreach to Eurasia via Iran and Turkey. Iran’s economy has bounced back quite strongly, largely due to integration with China and Turkey. Now Iran’s immediate priority is to strengthen its airforce a Sino-Iranian 4th generation aircraft will be introduced soon. Iran’s budget has allocated $5 billion for aircraft purchases.

      BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – On Monday, the Iranian Army announced the
      supply of warplanes in proportion to the threats they face from their
      enemies, stressing that “commitment and specialization are the two wings
      of the Air Force of the Islamic Republic.”

  • Cromwell

    Not sure they should be giving out this information.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Why not, they know the Americunt arseholes don’t have a clue so a lot of disinformation is also planted. The real locations are known to only a few dozen top commanders and are so well camouflaged that you can drive on top of them and would not know.

  • Swift Laggard II

    iRANIAN MILITARY COMMANDERS TALK TOO MUCH. THEY SHOUT ABOUT ALL THEIR CAPABILITIES

        He is a Hindu punk cunt who gets banned for being an idiot, these are his latest trolling accounts. He has a fascination with Iran, due to some inferiority complex, the moron is dumb as I outed his new fake accounts in less that a minute. The other ones are “Paul” and “Ghosh”. LOL

      • Swift Laggard II

        Yes. That is how Iranian commanders have been shouting to the whole world about their capabilities

    • Zionism = EVIL

      This is the same Hindu cunt “Paul”, this time the motherfucker has opened 3 new trolling accounts.

      • Swift Laggard II

        hey, don’t insult me. Keep me out of your issues with Paul. I have stated before many times, I am neither Iranian, nor American nor Shia nor Sunni, nor even the Indian you allege Paul to be and love to hate. I am an objective neutral observer of regional affairs. If Iran does well, I commend them. if the tsionists do well, i commend them. If they mess, i comment accordingly. Iranian military commanders are too quick to speak on everything. The deterrence value of this is not apparent – we all know by now Iran has missile cities – why do the enemies need to be told the details? When you launch a small satellite, it is a good start. Why then does Hajizadeh need to go on TV and outline the whole Iranian space programme and where it is heading? Why can’t you just keep quiet and let your enemies find out for themselves what is going on when you keep up a steady stream of launches? Some capabilities should only be discovered on the material day by the enemy, when the rubber meets the road, and you give him the fright of his life. Be like the DPRK, silent but very deadly

  • verner

    the only sensible thing for the iranians to do – to be able to close down the persian gulf when the morons in the white house need to divert attention from the deplorable state at home, and also being goaded by the more than evil jews (waiting for extinction at the hands of the 250 million arabs in the neighbouring states). what better end for the middle east – a jew free palestine and the jews into their second diaspora.

  • Joaquin

    As someone with not military experience or background, and who doesn’t belong go the region but with a curious mind and critical thinking, after analyzing and thinking different scenarios of an all-out war I’m convinced that there’s no way to destroy Iran using conventional weapons, let alone invading it. But I’m almost certain the empire will make it’s last stand against Iran regardless

  • Paul

    Target practice for the israelis lol.

      problem is all your owning means zero in strategic terms. just a total waste of scarce dollars as you plunge deeper into the debtors hole. all those assets, what are they for if they cannot deter Iran from achieving their goals?
