IRGC Tests Shoulder-Launched Weapon

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps’ Ground Force successfully tested a new shoulder-launched assault weapon in a massive military exercise underway in Iran’s eastern, central and northeastern regions. Speaking to reporters in an eastern border region on Tuesday, IRGC Ground Force Commander Lieutenant General Mohammad Pakpour said an aerial target was hit by the Misaq shoulder-launched assault weapon during the wargame, codenamed Payambar-e Azam-11 (The Great Prophet-11), according to Tasnim News Agency. The latest version of Misaq was unveiled by the Defense Ministry on February 6. The large-scale three-day drills began on Monday. Its first stage saw the launch of modern rockets in central parts of Iran. On Wednesday, the Special Operations Forces, armor and airborne units are to participate. Iran’s Armed Forces hold routine military exercises throughout the year. The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured other nations, especially neighboring states, that its military might poses no threat to other countries and that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
