Iran's paramilitary Revolutionary Guard announced on April 20, 2020 that it has significantly upgraded the range of its anti-warship missiles. The Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps currently possesses surface-to-surface and subsurface anti-warship missiles with a range as high as 430 miles, according to its top naval officer, ADM Alireza Tangsiri.
In last September, Iranian officials said the country's most advanced anti-warship missiles had a range of about 180 miles. Iran periodically announces major advances in its weapons capabilities that cannot be verified independently. Its armed forces are believed to have surface-to-surface missiles with a range of 1,250 miles that can reach Israel and U.S. bases in the Mideast.
