This missile benefits from smart, self-relying pinpointing capabilities and is ready to defend the borders of Iran in different weather conditions, General Heidari said. 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.”
Last January, the Iranian Army Ground Force for the first time tested the country’s new indigenous electro-optic system, Jalal, during the Eqtedar (Might) 99 wargames along the Makran coasts on the Northern rims of the Sea of Oman, Fars reports. The Army Ground Force tested the electro-optic system in real combat conditions against hypothetical enemy targets. 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.
