Iran’s Air Force on Sunday test-fired an air-to-ground missile, optimized by the local experts, during Army's huge military exercises.

"Today, the air-to-ground missiles which have been optimized by the country's defense industry experts were test-fired in the wargames zone," the Air Force evaluator for the current Mohammad Rasoulallah (PBUH) drills, General Mansour Vanak, said today.

"Another noteworthy point with regard to the air-to-ground missiles which were test-fired today is their pin-point precision striking capability," Vanak said.

This is while the solid-fuel, two-stage Sejjil missile with two engines, is capable of reaching a very high altitude and therefore has a longer range than that of the Shahab 3 model.
