The third generation of Fateh 110 (Conqueror 110) missiles, which are domestically-manufactured and were successfully test-fired on August 25, were delivered to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Air Force on Tuesday.

The ceremony was attended by Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi and the IRGC Aerospace and Navy commanders.

Vahidi said the mass production of Fateh 110 has already started, adding the missiles will promote the operational capability of the IRGC air fleet. He also expressed hope the next generation of the Fateh 110 missile will be tested in the future.

The surface-to-surface Fateh 110 missiles are equipped with enhanced guidance systems to hit ground targets. The missiles were successfully test-fired last month.
