Iran unveiled a new artillery shell on Sunday, vastly improving its arsenal's range.

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said the new 130 millimeter advanced artillery shells will be the longest range artillery shells in arsenals of the Islamic Republic's army, Press TV reported on Sunday.

“This ammunition uses solid propellants and act like ballistic missiles,” the Iranian defense minister noted.

He also lauded Iranian experts in the arms production division of the country's defense industries for their efforts to further enhance the range of the artillery ammunition from 27 to 42 kilometers.

The defense minister also said such achievements demonstrate that sanctions against Iran have been ineffective.
