ImageTEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's state television says the country has successfully test-fired a heat-seeking air-to-air missile.

The Sunday report quotes air force chief Gen. Hasan Shahsafi as saying the missile has a range of 62 miles, or 100 kilometers. The report did not elaborate.

Iran periodically announces missile tests to demonstrate the self-sufficiency of its defense industries.

Iran launched an arms development program during its 1980-88 war with Iraq to compensate for a U.S. weapons embargo. Since 1992, Iran has produced its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles and a fighter plane.
