Iran announced that it tested a new ballistic missile known as the "Barani." This missile is equipped with submunition payloads to better evade enemy missile defense systems and attack multiple targets simultaneously. Iran also displayed its new "Bina" missile, which appears to be a U.S. AGM-65 Maverick air-to-ground missile fitted with a laser seeker.
