TEHRAN, July 10 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has improved a 122mm homegrown rocket into a guided weapon by increasing its accuracy, an IRGC commander told Tasnim news agency on Friday.

Ali Koohestani, director of the Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad Organization of the IRGC Ground Force, said his force has improved the performance of "Arash" rocket.

The rocket has hit the targets with the pinpoint accuracy in a series of recent tests, Koohestani said.

The weapon would be mass produced for delivery to the Defense Ministry, he added.

With the weight of 64 kilograms, Arash has a range of 22 kilometers and is equipped with a 19 kg warhead with great destructive power, said the report. Enditem
