Ministry of Defense and Logistics of the Iranian Armed Forces has launched a full-scale production facility for a new fully-automatic 35 mm anti-aircraft cannon. According to IRIB correspondent, the fully-automatic anti-aircraft cannon is equipped with advanced radar and fire-control systems and is able to target warplanes, helicopters and various types of missiles with its short-range targeting system. The anti-aircraft cannon is also equipped with a modern satellite system which is able to identify aerial targets carefully, and open fire on the selected target right away. Attending the inaugural ceremony of the launch of the new 35 mm anti-aircraft cannon system, Iran's minister of defense, Major General Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said speed, precision and quality are three basic characteristics of the anti-aircraft cannon and since countries possessing this technology refused to provide Iran with this system, Iranian experts decided to produce a prototype first, and in a short period of time thereafter full-scale mass production was launched.
