Iran has advertised its underground missile bases even before. In 2015, the IRGC had released footage of a secret underground missile base where medium and long-range missiles were being stored. It was claimed to be 500 meters deep. The missiles in the footage were on their launch pads. The footages were again released in 2016 amid tensions with Saudi Arabia.

In January and November 2020, IRGC had released more footage’s of what they termed as underground “Missile cities.”
