TEHRAN (AP): Iran has unveiled a new surface-to-air missile and two radar systems it claims will boost the country's defence capabilities.

Air defence chief Gen. Farzad Esmaili says the missile will enable Iranian forces to "shoot down any hostile target," even at high altitudes.

He says the Talash-3, or Endeavour-3 missile was successfully test-fired recently. Esmaili's speech was broadcast on state TV Tuesday.

The general also inaugurated two radar systems, Arash-2, tasked with detecting miniature drones at a distance of 150 kilometres and also Kayhan, said to be capable of detecting cruise missiles and drones.

Tehran regularly announces military advances that cannot be independently verified.

It has surface-to-surface missiles with a range of about 2,000 kilometres, enough to reach Israel and US military bases in the region.
