Iran's Air Force commander Hassan Shahsafi said Monday that his country will test new generation of smart bombs in near future, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

The new bombs, dubbed Qased-2, are the upgraded generation of earlier-made 2000-pound Qased-1 bombs, the report said, adding that the new generation has advantages of farther-reaching capabilities, more accuracy and more destructive power.

The Qased-1 bomb was test-fired in 2006.

The Qased-1 has already been mass produced and given to the air force and it will be used in the military units in case they need it, Shahsafi was quoted as saying.
