Iran tested a domestically made missile system on Tuesday.
The Mersad 16 anti-aircraft system was fully developed in Iran. Tehran says it can identify targets at any altitude and transmit data to a command center for their destruction. It is designed to shoot down high-speed, low-flying weapons such as cruise missiles. The test included firing missiles and took place in a desert area of central Iran, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported.
The system has been upgraded and will continue to be improved, according to the semi-official Tasnim News Agency.
