Deputy Commander: Iran to produce missiles surpassing Phoenix

"The Iranian Air Force has made great achievements in the production of air-to-air missiles, which is comparable and probably beyond Phoenix missiles. The superiority of these rockets is their greater range and the use of an active guidance head," he said.
