Iran on Thursday ended its large-scale military exercises by testing firing a 2000-pound guided bomb, state-run television reported. "It is a flying bomb and can be used as a guided long-range air-to-surface missile," Gen. Amir Amini, deputy commander of Iran's air force, told state TV. Amini added that the bomb was a special weapon developed for penetrating military, economic and strategic targets located deep underground on the soil of the enemy. Gen. Amini said the bomb has an "exceptional" explosive power against its targets either on the ground or in the sea.
