The most blunt instrument in Iran’s military doctrine is its large inventory of missiles. Of these, the Shahab family of ballistic missiles, which are based on North Korean designs, are the best known, which are highly risky strategy Iran could exploit during war with America.
With the possible exception of North Korea, no country in the post–Cold War era has sought to challenge the United States as much as Iran. From the Middle East to Central Asia to Latin America, Tehran has never missed an opportunity to antagonize the U.S. and limit its influence.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ assistant in human rights and parliamentary affairs, Muhammad Saleh Jokar, once revealed that Iranian missiles can strike any point within a radius of 2,000 kilometers, adding: “Our short-range missiles easily reach the American fleets in the Gulf.”
Given the weakness of the Iranian air fleet, Tehran has begun to develop some dangerous missiles which they could utilize during any possible war with america.
Perhaps Iran’s greatest deterrent threat is its ability to utilize their long and short range missiles.
