TEHRAN, November 27 (RIA Novosti) - Iran has produced a missile with a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,240 miles), the country's defense minister announced on Tuesday.
State media quoted Gen. Mostafa Mohammad Najjar as saying that the Ashoura missile has been produced at a factory related to the ministry.
The range of the missile would allow it to reach Israel, as well as United States military bases in the Middle East.

I think it's very likely a lot of Iran's missile technology has a fair bit to do with Russia. Russia put a lot of effort in to their missiles where the west put a lot of effort into fighter craft and other very expensive kit. The result is that the could of spent the same money on R+D, but a missile is cheaper and less complicated to make lots of. Its economies of scale.

We can easily shoot those so called new "sunburn" missiles down with the the Arrow anti-ballistic missile system. It will track just about anything launched over 200 ft into the air into the designated area its assigned. Its just a bunch of hype to scare us into thinking that Iran is a threat.
The US and Israel have the capability to track and destroy any aggressive missile launch within minutes. Our Navy is even better equipped.
They (Iran) are only a threat to their own people by having an insane leader dictate the policy....hmmm sound familiar?

The propaganda seems to be working... but that doesn't explain why I have several Muslims friends that don't hate anyone.
Also, on an ironic note, I have a female Iranian friend who moved to Canada because she couldn't stand the intolerance, ignorance, and rampant greed in the country she was living. No, not Iran. She had already left there... the country she was referring to was the US.
Go fig, eh?
