Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) unveiled the ‘Fattah’, the regime’s first hypersonic missile, on Tuesday morning, Iranian state media announced.
Iran really hasn’t been up to all that much lately, I cannot recall the last time we did a story on the terror state. But behind the scenes, they have been quite busy building their offensive weaponry capabilities. Today we find that they’ve just announced the launching of their new ‘Fattah’ missile that, they say, is able to hit Israel within 400 second after launching. The name ‘Fattah’ in Persian translates to ‘Conqueror’ or ‘victory giver’, as in a victory over their sworn and eternal enemies, the Jews.
“And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” Genesis 32:28 (KJB)
Recently I spent some time watching the excellent documentaries ‘Above and Beyond’ and ‘Against All Odds’ that talk about the miraculous ways God has defended and preserved the nascent nation of Israel since their regathering in 1948, 75 years ago. They’re available on Amazon Prime, and I highly recommend you watch them. Even though the Jews are unwittingly preparing themselves to go through the time of Jacob’s trouble, God’s hand will always be upon the Jewish remnant to see them through.
Iran unveils ‘Fattah,’ its first hypersonic missile
FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: The unveiling ceremony was attended by Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, IRGC Commander-in-Chief Hossein Salami and other high-ranking officials. Later in the day, Iranian media published footage purporting to show a test launch of the missile. According to Iranian media, the Fattah hypersonic missile has a range of 1,400 kilometers and hits speeds of Mach 13-15. The reports claimed that the missile is able to bypass and destroy air defense systems.
The Fattah features a moveable secondary nozzle and uses solid propellants, allowing it to reach high speeds and “perform various maneuvers inside and outside the earth’s atmosphere,” according to the Iranian Fars News Agency. Raisi claimed that the new missile “is a point of security and stable peace for the countries of the region.”
In November, the IRGC warned that a new hypersonic missile it was developing could hit Israel within 400 seconds. 400 seconds comes out to 6.66 minutes.
“Iran’s military, defense and missile power creates deterrence, of course, it creates deterrence not only from invasion but also from the thought of invasion,” added Raisi. “This missile power means that the region will be safe from evildoers and foreign aggression, so its message to the people of the region is a message of security, and its message to those who are thinking of attacking Iran is that the Islamic Republic is a powerful country and its power aims to support the people of Iran and the oppressed people of the world.”
During the unveiling ceremony, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Force, called the Fattah “a missile that is unique in the world.”
“The Fatah missile cannot be destroyed by any missile due to its movement in different directions and heights, because anti-missile missiles move according to a specific vector, which of course has a low speed,” claimed Hajizadeh.
“Our operations in this area will not end with the construction of this missile, because we will continue on this path so that no enemy even imagines attacking Iran.” Hajizadeh added that it was Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei who chose the name “Fattah” for the missile. READ MORE
