The latest item unveiled by Iran's defense minister is a smart ammunition system titled “BASIR”, its main objective is to enhance Iran's defense capability during military threats. Basir is an Iranian artillery fired laser-guided, 155 mm explosive projectile designed to destroy enemy tanks, vehicles and other moving or non-moving targets with high precision. This weapon is similar in function with Russian Kransnopol or American M712 Copperhead. These shells were unveiled in 1/30/2012 at the first day of so called "Daheye Fajr", a key point during the Islamic Revolution by defense minister Ahmad Vahidi. He later added that this system is very useful in mountainous areas. Iranian TV showed some footage of the weapon being fired from an HM 41 at land and sea targets. It has a reported range of 20 km.

    u Russians need to calm down. just because you sold 2..3 missiles to Iran doesn't make every weapons Russian. plus, why everyone thinks that Iran is building weapon to terrorizes other countries! for the past 200 years the only war Iran had was against Iraq which we didn't even started it! and I've never heard any Iranian name come up as a terrorist or suicide bomber! yes, few has claim Hezbollah is for Iran but Hezbollah itself has announced countless times that Iran has no control over them! and we all know that it was CIA who created Hezbollah! plus we are fighting ISIS along with U.S and the west so how r we against west or terrorist???
