Iran shows off underground ‘missile city’

Iran’s armed forces have shown off one of the underground missile bunkers that will “erupt like a volcano” if “enemies make a mistake”.

Iran has showed off its new “missile city” today packed full of ballistic rockets in a chilling message to US President Joe Biden.

Footage shared by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGC) in Iran shows the underground bunker with dozens of missiles.

The bunker in an undisclosed location reportedly contains both “cruise and ballistic missiles”, according to Iranian state media.

The Iranian military said the bunker has security to protect against electronic war attacks.

It was unveiled on Monday in a ceremony attended by IRGC General Hossein Salami and other high-ranking military officials.

He said: “[Despite being] under sanctions, we have made major technological achievements in the defence industry.”

The navy showed different types of missiles during the ceremony, including some that can change targets once fired.

Earlier this year, Iran released images of massive hidden bases dotted all over the Islamic republic, showing thousands of missiles ready for launch from secret bunkers ready to be used if “enemies make a mistake”.

Fears of war rose earlier in March when Iranian militia groups claimed to have set up “resistance cells” in the United States.

Iran has been making serious and increasingly extreme threats against the US following the January 3 assassination of their top general, Quasem Soleimani.

Iran put a $US80 million ($A100 million) bounty on then-president Donald Trump’s head and accidentally downed a passenger plane that was leaving Tehran, killing all 176 on board including four Brits.

Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Islamic Republic’s Revolutionary Guards’ aerospace division, previously broadcast footage of the largest underground base on Iranian TV.

The entrance to Code 7500, which lies in Khojir, Tehran, is hidden under a number of narrow winding roads, which run across mountainsides in the province.

Hajizadeh previously said: “If enemies make a mistake, missile bases will erupt like a volcano from the depth of earth.”

Pictures show the underground military base constructed with reinforced concrete and packed with rockets.

The base is located deep below ground – presumably designed to evade bunker-busting bombs.

Iranian TV footage showed a number of missile components appearing to belong to the Qiam-1 ballistic missile system, which has a range of about 640km.

Men are then seen assembling them in one of the underground base’s launch rooms.

Once fitted together, the missile is launched and is seen soaring skywards.

Code 7500 is said to be the site for the construction of Iran’s renowned Shahab 3 medium-range missiles.
