Iran has started to arm the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps artilleries with state-of-the-art smart munitions and cluster shells.
Iran's advanced ammunition will be used to protect Iranian territory, said commander of the IRGC missile systems Brigadier General Mahmoud Chaharbaghi.
"Fajr 3 and Fajr 5 long-range rocket launchers along with Zalzal rockets with a range of 150 kilometers are among the high-tech military equipment the IRGC will employ," Gen. Chaharbaghi said.
The top IRGC commander added that Iran has launched a production line for smart munitions which can hit small mobile targets and long-range cluster shells. “IRGC artilleries across the country are currently equipped with 130, 150, DC122 heavy cannons and powerful Katyusha rockets," Gen. Chaharbaghi said. He concluded that in the event of an attack on the country, IRGC forces would 'overwhelm invaders with their fire power'.
