      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.
