Iran Forming Islamic Revolution Guard Unit for Special Missile Projects?

from MEMRI Iranian Media Blog:

 IRGC commander Maj.-Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari

Iran is considering establishing a special section within the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) for strengthening its missile projects, IRGC commander Maj.-Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari said on May 25.

Jafari mentioned that in line with changes in missile projects, a special and independent unit might become necessary, especially considering the "new conditions and form of threats."

He said, "An independent command may soon be established to strengthen the structure and improve the activity of our missile division."

The IRGC has in the recent months tested several missiles in military maneuvers, including new types of land-to-sea and sea-to-sea missiles whose range covers the entire Persian Gulf.
