In an interview with Sobh-e Sadeq weekly, Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Rear Admiral Ali Reza Tangsiri said the IRGC Navy, like the IRGC Aerospace Force, has established underground and offshore missile cities containing coast-to-sea missiles.

The “missile-launching floating cities” would be put on display at the discretion of authorities, the commander noted, adding, “The enemy knows that the Army and the IRGC have underground (missile) cities all along the Persian Gulf and the Makran coasts, but its information is not accurate.”

The IRGC Navy is present everywhere in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, in every place that the enemy would not even think about, like a “nightmare”, the admiral warned.

Tangsiri pointed to the IRGC Navy’s initiative to form “naval Basij” on 2,200 km of Iran’s southern coasts, excluding the islands, saying the force involves 428 flotillas and more than 23,000 servicemen.

“All of our coasts are armed and the underground cities of the Army and the IRGC with various defense utilities have scattered over the entire southern coasts. The coast is fully armed as well,” he added.

The commander also said the enemies should brace themselves to hear the news of new long-range Iranian missiles and vessels that they could not even imagine.

Tangsiri went on to say that the IRGC Navy keeps a close watch on every single ship that crosses the Strait of Hormuz, stressing that if the US forces make any mistake, they will be followed as far as the Gulf of Mexico.
