    Iran has successfully test-fired an upgraded version of a short-range ballistic missile, Iranian Defense Minister Brig.-Gen. Ahmad Vahidi said Saturday.
    According to the Fars News Agency, Vahidi said that the new version of the solid-fueled Fateh-110 missile, which means "conqueror" in Farsi, has increased accuracy and has a range of 300 kilometers.
    In comments reported by Iranian state TV on Saturday, Vahidi claimed the missile can pin-point targets at sea, making it the most accurate weapon of its kind in Iran's arsenal.
    The minister emphasized that the surface-to-surface missile was developed by Iran’s Aerospace Industries Organization. The Fateh-110 is a single-stage solid-propellant, surface-to-surface missile put into service in 2002. The earlier version of the domestically produced missile had a range of 200km.
    The missile is of particular interest to Israel since Hezbollah has hundreds of M600 missiles, which are copies of the Fateh-110. Hezbollah is believed to be storing the M600 in private homes throughout southern and central Lebanon, the Jerusalem Post said.

    WTF! Surely they could have made a better effort than painting a fire engine white and sticking a rocket on it?
