IRGC Commander-in-Chief General Hossein Salami spoke at a ceremony marking the unveiling of an IRGC Navy "Missile City," introducing the various weapons added to the IRGC navy arsenal. The unveiling was aired on Channel 1 (Iran) on March 15, 2021. He said that the IRGC has UAVs, land-based anti-ship missiles, anti-ship missiles, sea mines, and various types of naval systems for electronic warfare, intelligence, naval mine warfare, and weapons that cannot be unveiled. IRGC Navy Commander General Alireza Tangsiri said that the IRGC no longer needs to transport the shore missiles to the beach, because they can be launched behind hills and can be launched on the move. He added that the missiles can change their target after they have been launched. The reporter said that the capabilities of these systems and equipment in the battlefield will give the IRGC strategic advantages.

Narrator: "Today, as the anniversary of the birth of Imam Hussein and IRGC Day [are drawing near], a new base and missile city of the IRGC navy were unveiled. In addition, many missile systems and equipment were added to this force. The capabilities of these systems and equipment in the battlefield will give this force significant strategic advantages."

General Alireza Tangsiri: "These missiles can be launched from behind hills towards the shore. We no longer need our shore missiles transported to the beach. These missiles can be launched while on the move. These are anti-electronic warfare missiles. The missiles and the dear people who built them...The range of the missiles has significantly changed."

Narrator: "This new defense equipment includes missiles that can change their target after being launched."

General Hossein Salami: "To our delight, the IRGC navy has accelerated the building of its force in all areas. These include the UAVs, land-based anti-ship missiles, anti-ship missiles, sea mines, and various types of naval systems for electronic warfare, intelligence, naval mine warfare, and weapons that we cannot unveil, naturally."

Narrator: "The IRGC navy's missile city is full of ballistic and cruise missiles with various ranges. In addition to the missile city and the new missile systems, today, as part of the sixth installment, large quantities of electronic warfare equipment were added to the combat unit of the IRGC navy."

Tangsiri: "Today, with the arrival of these systems and electronic warfare equipment to the IRGC navy, we will be able to follow even turned-off signals of the enemy's internal communications.
