A Successful Test for Iranian Missile
TEHRAN - Iran successfully tested a powerful anti-tank missile Tuesday and
will soon start mass producing the weapon, the Defense Ministry said.
The Saeqeh-1 missile has precise targeting ability and is "capable of
destroying the most advanced armored equipment in the world," the ministry
announced in a statement carried by the official Iranian press agency, IRNA.
The ministry did not give the weapon's range. State television Tuesday
showed several tests of the missile hitting targets. The report said the
government-owned Aerospace Industries Organization would soon begin mass
producing the missile.
