The Fateh-110, or Conqueror, 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 200 kilometers.
Vahidi's comments were reported by state TV Saturday. The weapon was developed by Iran's Aerospace Industries Organization.
