Tehran first announced development of the long-range guided bomb on August 23, saying it could be deployed by the country's aging U.S.-made F-4 and F-5 fighter jets.


Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said on state television today that Iran will use these bombs "against our enemies when the time comes."
