Iran claims to have developed long-range artillery

Iran claims to have developed a new, long-range artillery shell.
Iran unveiled a new artillery shell on Sunday, vastly improving its arsenal's range. Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said the new 130 millimeter advanced artillery shells will be far outstrip the previous capabilities 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.

Vahidi 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.
I'm sure the countries around the Persian Gulf must be thrilled about this.

The Emirates, for example, are within 27 kilometers of Iran across the Persian Gulf.
