Speaking at the launch of the missiles, Defense Minister Brigadier-General Amir Hatami said;

“This is another significant achievement of power and dignity for the Islamic Republic of Iran.

“It shows that despite the viciousness and conspiracies of the Great Satan America and its mercenaries, the defense ministry will not hesitate for a moment to defend the Islamic Republic and to expand security.”

While the Yasin is a smart guided missile with folding wings that can be fired from a range of 50 kilometers (30 miles) of its target from manned or unmanned aircraft, the Balaban smart bomb is guided by hybrid inertial navigation system (INS) / Global Positioning System (GPS) guidance and sensors to boost its precision capabilities. The Balaban is also equipped with folding wings and can be mounted under an aircraft.

In the last few years, there has been growing tension between Iran and the United States after the Trump administration walked away from a nuclear deal signed under predecessor Obama.
