The mid-altitude Mersad missile system was successfully tested using the home-made Shalamcheh missile on Saturday with Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili, commander of the Khatam ul-Anbyia air defense base, and a number of Defense Ministry officials.

The missile was tested on a drone which it successfully hit.
