TEHRAN, Oct. 12 (UPI)
Iranian state media reported the first successful test of the country's new long-range strike missile, the Emad, on Sunday. Iran's defense ministry has released photos of the missile's launch, but no details of the new weapon's capabilities. CNN reports the Emad (Pillar) is a surface-to-air missile designed by Iranian experts. It is the country's first missile that can be precision-guided to reach its target. Iran's state media, IRNA, said the Emad is "capable of scrutinizing the targets and destroying them completely."
