Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps unveiled a home-made high-explosive mine and test-fired an anti-cruise missile in a ceremony attended by IRGC Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour on Sunday.

Among the test-fired weapons was a rotating three-cylinder cannon, “Asefeh” (photo), which was unveiled a few months ago and can be used to target and destroy incoming cruise missiles and hostile flying objects in low altitudes.

Another system which was unveiled and test-fired was “Ramait” high-explosive roadside mine which can destroy an armored column within a radius of 100-150 meters with high precision.

Also a solo weapon, “Fateh”, was the third system unveiled this afternoon. Fateh is an Iran-made sniper rifle that fires 5.56mm bullets.

“Ramait roadside mine which enjoys good capabilities will be mass-produced tomorrow. Other systems tested today are also ready for mass-production,” Pakpour told FNA.

The Iranian Armed Forces have recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of home-made weapons, tools and equipment, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircrafts, UAVs and air defense and electronic systems, during massive military drills.

Furthermore, Iran on Monday unveiled a new drone named “Sadeq 1” during the military parades at the mausoleum of the Founder of the Islamic Republic, the Late Imam Khomeini, South of the capital.

Sadeq 1 flies at a maximum altitude of 25,000 ft at supersonic speeds. The Iran-made drone has been manufactured for testing radar and electronic systems and training assessments.

The Iranian Armed Forces staged annual military parades in Tehran and other cities on Monday on the occasion of the Sacred Defense Week.

Senior Iranian officials, including President Hassan Rouhani, as well as a host of top military Commanders and foreign dignitaries attended the ceremony.
