Bina missile, 2014

Bina (Persian: بینا‎)[1] is an Iranian laser guided dual-capability surface-to-surface and air-to-surface missile.

History

It was successfully tested by Iranian military on February 10, 2014,[2] according to Janes and Reuters.[3] It appears to be an AGM-65 Maverick air-to-ground missile with a semi-active laser (SAL) seeker fitted to its nose.[4]

Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the ballistic missile had radar-evading capabilities. "The new generation of long-range ground-to-ground ballistic missile with a fragmentation warhead and the laser-guided air-to-surface and surface-to-surface missile dubbed Bina (Insightful) have been successfully test-fired. The Bina missile is capable of striking important targets such as bridges, tanks and enemy command centres with great precision."[3]
