A day before the Day of Defence Industry and in the 19th week of the inauguration of the national plans and projects throughout the country, a number of national achievements in the field of the Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces Logistics were put into operation and unveiled on Thursday.
Opening of the exhibition of achievements of Drone Authority, inauguration of the production line of national light turbojet engine (Owj), unveiling of Shahid Haj Qassem ballistic missile and Shahid Abu Mahdi cruise missile and unveiling of light turbofan engine (Jahesh), were among the national achievements of the Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces Logistics that were unveiled at Dr Hassan Rouhani's order.
With the opening of the national light turbojet engine production line, the Islamic Republic of Iran is now among the 8 countries producing fighter engines.
The Haj Qassem ballistic missile, which was unveiled at the ceremony, is capable of being prepared and fired in a very short time, and due to its high speed and reduced radar visibility, it can hit targets up to a radius of 1400 km with high accuracy.
Production of light turbofan engine is also one of the most important technological achievements in the field of engine manufacturing in the country, which has been achieved domestically using the power of knowledge-based and technology-based companies and the scientific and research power of the country's top universities.
Shahid Abu Mahdi cruise missile is also from the family of Soumar and Hoveyzeh missiles, which has a flight range of 1000 km and the ability to destroy or seriously damage vessels with a weight of 3,000 tonnes and above.
