Sept 6, IRNA
Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said here Wednesday that Iran has, for the first time, designed and produced a 2,000-pound guided bomb named `Qassed'.
Referring to the bomb, he said "Iran will test one of the best achievements of the defense ministry in the (ongoing) `Blow of Zolfaqar wargames." "This remarkable achievement, one of the most important of the defense industry in this Iranian calendar year, will add to Iran's defensive potential and concretize its deterrent principle," he said.
He said Iran now joins the few countries that possess guided missile technology.
The minister further expressed felicitations to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, the armed forces and Iranian nation, and lauded experts of the Iranian Defense Ministry for this great achievement.
