Deputy Commander of the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces Kiumars Heidari says Iran has successfully test-fired three new missiles.

“The three types of missiles, manufactured by Iran’s defense industry and Army, were successfully test-fired during the recent drill of the forces,” said Heidari in a Saturday interview.

The Iranian Commander pointed out that the three new missiles are surface-to-surface.

Heidari went on to say that the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces also plan to showcase their new Armored Personnel Carriers on April 18 on the occasion of Iran’s Army Day.

The missile and rocket-launching units of the Ground Forces of the Iranian Army plan to stage a one-day missile drill in central Iran on Thursday.

The maneuver, in which new missile systems are to be launched, is aimed at maintaining the preparedness and enhancing the defensive capabilities of the Forces’ rocket-launching and missile units.

Over the past few years, Iran has held several military drills to enhance the defense capabilities of its Armed Forces and to test modern military tactics and equipment. (Press TV)
