The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani attended a ceremony on Saturday to unveil the “Fateh-313” missile, which operates on composite solid fuel and is said to be more accurate in pinpointing targets within a range of 500 kilometers.
The new version of the missiles has a lighter body weight. It runs on an advanced generation of propellants with composite solid fuel and sensors. It also has a quicker launch capability and a longer lifespan, media reports.
The Defense Ministry plans to mass produce the short-range high-precision strike missile.
The Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great progress in manufacturing a broad range of home-grown equipment, making the Iranian armed forces self-sufficient.
