Iran on Sunday successfully test-fired a new long-range precision-guided ballistic missile, named Emad, that can be controlled until the moment of impact, Fars News Agency (FNA) reported.

“This missile (Emad) which has been fully designed and made by Iranian Defense Ministry's scientists and experts is the country’s first long-range missile with navigation and strike controlling capability; it is capable of hitting and destroying the targets with high-precision,” said Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan.

The Iranian Defense Minister reiterated that the manufacture and successful testing of Emad missile is a technological and operational jump in a strategic field, and said, “We don’t ask for anyone's permission for boosting our defense and missile power; we resolutely continue our defense programs, especially in the missile field, and Emad missile is a conspicuous example.”

The Iranian Defense Minister reiterated that the mass production and delivery of Emad missile to the country's Armed Forces will considerably increase their power and tactical capabilities.

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.

Defense analysts and military observers say that Iran's wargames and its advancements in weapons production have proved as a deterrent factor.
