TEHRAN, May 28 (MNA) – The Iranian Army Ground Force has devised plans to update and renovate its weapons with modern and homegrown technologies, a senior commander said.

He said the Army Ground Force’s strategy entails the acquisition of weapons and equipment that can hit targets in long ranges with precision strikes, are smart, and can be automated and integrated into networks.

The modern weapons are designed to enable the Army Ground Force to respond to any threat or act of aggression against the Iranian borders within the shortest time and in the most effective and decisive manner possible, the general stated.
