Iran has test fired a new short-range missile equipped with a guidance system it plans to install on all future missiles it builds, Ahmad Vahidi, the defense minister, has said, adding the test was successful.
"With the fourth-generation of the Fateh 110, the armed forces of our country are able to target and destroy land and sea targets, enemy headquarters ... missile seats, ammunition sites, radars and other points," Vahidi said in quotes carried by Islamic Republic News Agency on Saturday.
The Fateh 110 has a range of around 300km, IRNA reported.
Vahidi said the weapon could strike with pin-point precision, making it the most accurate weapon of its kind in Iran's arsenal.
"By reaching this generation of the Fateh-110, a new capability has been added to our armed forces in striking sea and land targets," Iranian TV quoted Vahidi as saying.
