Iranian Fighter Jets Armed with New Missiles


March 8, 2009, Tehran -- Iran successfully armed its fighter jets with a new type of air-to-surface missiles.

The missiles, which have a range of 110km, were successfully mounted onto the fighter jets and test-fired.

Experts from the Iranian Armed Forces in charge of the project told FNA that the air-to-surface missile, weighing 500kg, can hit and destroy maritime targets up to 110 kilometers in distance.

The Iranian experts also developed and installed a modern radar and launching system on the fighter jets in a bid to enhance the target precision capabilities of the jets.

The automatic guidance capability of the missile and its special warhead designed for destroying major maritime targets are among the other important features of the missile. (Fars)
