An underground missile production facility was also showed off during the unveiling ceremony.

Speaking at the ceremony, Revolutionary Guard Corps Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said unveiling an underground missile production facility was an answer to Westerners who think they can stop Tehran from reaching its goals through sanctions and threats.
