TEHRAN (FNA)- The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Monday morning tested optimized long range Shahab-3 missiles.
The IRGC Air Force successfully tested long-range Shahab-3 missiles in the wargames, codenamed Payambar-e Azam (The Great Prophet), in a bid to bolster its defense capability.
The liquid-fuel Shahab class missiles include a wide range of missiles, including the well-known Shahab-3 which has a range of up to 1,250 miles (2000 kilometers) and is capable of carrying a 1,000-760 kilogram warhead.
The optimized Shahab-3 is more precise than the previous models and Iran has promoted its Navigation Systems.
The IRGC also tested several models of medium-range Shahab-1 and Shahab-2 missiles during the second phase of the drills launched on Sunday night.
