Iran is a manufacturer of various advanced shoulder-fired missiles with ranges at low and medium altitudes, which are capable of hitting different types of approaching and receding targets with different velocities, he was quoted as saying.
At another ceremony to open a hybrid solid propellant factory supplying fuel for missiles, Baqeri said that it was necessary to extend the range and speed of missiles fired in the ground combats.
The new solid fuel will boost the power of tactical ground-to-ground, anti-tank and air defence missiles, he added.
