The Joint Security Operation Room of Misrata, Saturday, successfully test-fired two surface-to-air missiles.

The missiles were fired from a tank-mounted rocket launcher developed by the Technical Support Team of Misrata Air Force.

The missile, which has a range of 20 km if launched vertically and 60 km if horizontally, is said to be one of the most powerful anti-aircraft weapons as it can drop any enemy aircraft down to the ground within a diameter of 1000 cubic meters.

The test was attended by Prime Minister of Salvation Government Khalifa Al-Ghawiel.
