Iran today unveiled its first hypersonic ballistic missile – a terrifying threat to the West.
Dubbed the “Fattah,” the 3,800 mph rocket was unveiled at a ceremony attended by President Ebrahim Rahisi and top commanders of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards.
Hypersonic missiles can travel at least five times faster than the speed of sound – making them difficult to intercept.
Last year, Iran announced that it had built a hypersonic missile that can maneuver in and out of the atmosphere.
Iranian state media said the Fattah missile “can attack the enemy’s advanced missile defense systems and represents a major generational leap in the missile field.”
“It can bypass the most advanced missile defense systems of the United States and the Zionist regime, including Israel’s Iron Dome,” Iranian state television said.
