VTV.vn - On Sunday, Iran unveiled a locally developed advanced missile defense system referred to as the "Khordad 15" which is capable of destroying six targets simultaneously and can be set up for operation within five minutes.

The Khordad 15 can also trace stealth targets in areas 85 km away, and destroy them at a distance of 45 km.

The unveiling of Khordad 15 comes amid escalating tension between Iran and the US especially, when the US deployed an aircraft carrier outside the Persian Gulf last month.

Iran has worked in recent years to build its own weapons locally, rather than relying on foreign actors and they asserted that the Khordad 15 and other such systems were for defending Iran from foreign threats.
