TEHRAN - Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has successfully tested its newest top-attack anti-tank guided missile, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported on Saturday.

Dubbed Sadid-365, the missile is an anti-armor projectile with a range of 8 kilometers, which is capable of destroying different armored military vehicles, Tasnim quoted Ali Kouhestani, the head of the Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad Organization of the IRGC Ground Force, as saying.

He stressed that Sadid-365 is an optically-guided missile capable of hitting targets with pinpoint accuracy.
