Iran Test-Fires New Generation of Laser-Guided Missile

One day before Iran celebrated the 35th anniversary of its Islamic Revolution, it test-fired two new domestically manufactured missiles.

According to the Iranian Defense Ministry, a laser-guided surface-to-surface and air-to-surface missile named Bina (Insightful) and the new generation of a long-range ballistic missile were tested on Monday.

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said that the laser-guided Bina missile can be fired by fighter jets and from launching pads.

He added that the missile is capable of hitting important targets such as bridges, tanks, military vehicles, and enemy command centers with high precision.
