The IRGC’s combat weapons were first put on display during a visit by IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari to an exhibition of the latest military achievements of the IRGC Ground Force’s Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad Organization in Tehran on November 18.

Arash is a 20mm shoulder-launched weapon. It is an anti-helicopter weapon system, but it can also destroy land and logistic targets with maximum precision.

In February 2013, the IRGC test-fired  Arash, in its massive wargames, codenamed Payambar-e Azam 8 (The Great Prophet 8), in Southern Iran.

Elaborating on the missions of the drills, spokesman of the wargames, General Hamid Sarkheili, told reporters that the new weapon, which has been designed and produced by the IRGC’s local experts, would be delivered to the operating units in the wargames.

“The 20-mm shoulder-launched missile is an anti-helicopter weapon which can hit targets from a distance of 1,400 meters,” Sarkheili stated.
