The Iranian Army Ground Force on Sunday test-fired its new smart missile with the range of 300 km.

This mid-range missile is being tested today to assess its precision-striking power, he added.
This missile enjoys smart, self-relying, pinpointing capabilities and is ready to defend the borders of Iran in different weather conditions, General Heidari noted.
He underlined the capability of the Army Ground Force to make artillery, rocket launchers and rockets, and said: “We try to make our weapons in this area, firstly smart, secondly automatic, and thirdly with increasingly pin-pointing power.”
In a relevant development in January, the Iranian Army Ground Force tested for the first time the country’s new electro-optic system, Jalal, during the Eqtedar (Might) 99 wargames along the Makran coasts on the Northern rims of the Sea of Oman.
The Army Ground Force tested the electro-optic system in real combat conditions against hypothetical enemy targets in the drills.
The Ground Force used the mobile electro-optic system on the second day of the drills in order to precisely monitor different areas and the wargames zone.
The system, which has been designed and built by experts in the Army Ground Force, can transmit images taken in pitch dark to all remote control and command centers.It can also combine radar and optical data.
