By Owen Weldon     Aug 4, 2012 in World
Teheran - Iran's defense minister announced that Tehran has just tested a new version of its Fateh 110, which is a short-range missile.
The defense minister, Ahmad Vahidi, also said that the newer missile can strike enemy targets in countries that neighbor Iran. Vahidi went onto say that the missile could also hit targets at sea in the Persian Gulf, according to Voice Of America.
According to NBC, Vahidi said that the target-striking systems were installed on the missiles as well as during a flight test. Vahidi said that from now on all missiles built by the Defense Ministry will be equipped with the new target-striking systems.
According to Washington Post, Vahidi also said that few countries in the world possess the technology needed to create the missiles that Iran has created.
According to military leaders in Iran, future wars will most likely be sea and air based and this is why Tehran wanted to upgrade their air defense systems as well as their naval power.
