TEHRAN, Jan. 15 (Mehr News Agency) - Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar on Tuesday inaugurated the production line of 35mm anti-aircraft gun.
The short-range weapon, equipped with fire-controlled system (FCS) and an advanced radar system, can target aircrafts, helicopters, and different types of missiles.
Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Najjar said, "Domestic production of army's required equipment is one of the main strategies of the Defense Ministry."
"Since Iran could not import the system from developed countries, the Defense Ministry's experts decided to rely on their own talent and creativity, and managed to produce the gun's test model... and today we are witnessing the mass production of the defensive product."
He added, "Iran's defensive power has considerably increased through national unity and cohesion and the army and people's alertness."
