Iran on Sunday started mass-production of the county's longest-range artillery ammunition in an official ceremony attended by Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi. Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the mass production of Base bleed projectiles in the capital Tehran, Vahidi said the new 130 millimeter advanced artillery shells will be the longest range artillery shells in arsenals of the Islamic Republic's army, Iran's Defense Ministry said on its website.
