Sejil-2 Test - Statement by Defense Minister Vahidi

Iran announced it has successfully launched another Sejil-2 medium range ballistic missile. According to Iranian sources, the new solid-fueled missile is faster during the trajectory portion of its trajectory, as well as during reentry, and the missile is now covered in an "anti-radar" coating. According to Press TV:

"The engine and various fuels have been tested and the platform is now highly reliable. The latest tests to be carried out are mainly to do with the variety of warheads that it has to carry."

"Some of the warheads obviously have been designed to be able to evade anti-ballistic missile defenses of the enemy in actual battle conditions."
