TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps unveiled a home-made high-explosive mine in a ceremony attended by IRGC Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour on Sunday.
Among the weapons test-fired today was a rotating three-cylinder cannon, 'Asefeh', which was unveiled a few months ago and can be used to target and destroy hostile flying objects in low altitudes.

Another system which was unveiled and test-fired was 'Ramait' high-explosive roadside mine which can destroy an armored column within a radius of 100-150 meters with high precision.

Also a solo weapon, 'Fateh', was the third system unveiled this afternoon. Fateh is an Iran-made assault rifle that fires 5.56mm bullets.

"Ramait roadside mine which enjoys good capabilities will be mass-produced tomorrow," Pakpour told FNA today.

He added that other systems tested today are also ready for mass-production.

The Iranian Armed Forces have recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of home-made weapons, tools and equipment, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircrafts, UAVs and air defense and electronic systems, during massive military drills.

Defense analysts and military observers say that Iran's wargames and its advancements in weapons production have proved as a deterrent factor, specially at a time of heightened threats by the US.
