Iran plans to test a "more powerful and accurate"
generation of a 2000-pound guided-bomb with a "longer range," Air Force
commander Brigadier General Hassan Shah Safi said Monday.
The new bomb is the improved version of Qassed-1, meaning Herald, which was first tested in 2006.
"The Qassed-1 guided-bomb has been mass produced and left at the disposal of the Air Force ... its new generation will be test-fired soon," Fars news agency quoted Brig. Gen. Shah Safi as saying.
Qassed-2, he said, has a longer range, more accuracy and enjoys more explosive power than its previous version.
