Iran Equips IRGC with Large Numbers of 'Qiyam 1' Ballistic Missiles

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian Defense Ministry started supplying large numbers of 'Qiyam (Rise) 1' high-precision ballistic missiles to the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Sunday.
 
 
 


The new missiles were supplied to the IRGC in a ceremony attended by Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi and Commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.

Addressing the ceremony, Vahidi said that mass-production of Qiyam 1 missiles indicates Tehran's self-sufficiency in producing different types of missiles.

Referring to the detailed features and specifications of the newly mass-produced ballistic missile, Vahidi said that Qiyam 1 is the country's first finless missile.

The minister added that the very special design of the missile makes its detection by radars and air defense systems difficult.

He said that omission of the fins from the design has increased the velocity of the missile and shortened the launch time.

Iran had earlier announced that it plans to unveil a number of newly-manufactured home-made ballistic missiles late in May.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Vahidi had said a number of new defense products, "including some vessels, ballistic missiles and new ammunitions will come into use on the occasion of Khorramshahr Liberation Anniversary (1982)".

Vahidi explained that the newly produced ballistic missiles are the product of hard work and extensive research by Iranian experts, adding that they will be delivered to the Iranian Armed Forces in an official ceremony in the near future.

Iran has made giant progress in missile-production technology during the last decade.

In a recent case, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari announced in February that the IRGC has started mass-production of a recently-developed smart anti-ship ballistic missile.

"The IRGC's smart ballistic missiles are now in mass-production and this type of missiles can hit and destroy targets with high-precision," Jafari told reporters in a news conference here in Tehran in February.

"These new missiles enjoys supersonic speed and cannot be tracked or intercepted by enemy," the commander said, adding that missiles can hit targets 300km away with high-precision.

The Iranian Defense Ministry in October delivered the third generation of home-made Fateh-110 high-precision ballistic missiles to the IRGC Aerospace Force.

Reza 18, Ray-ATK ,

why are you stating that the Qiam 1 missile is solid propelled? It is , as can clearly seen from the pictures and the video of the August 2010, LIQUID fueled.

shahab, I didn't say it's a solid or liquid fuel rocket..I said solid as an expression - as in "great"!!

As to whether this rocket is solid or liquid fuel is not the point..The main issue here is the advancement Iran's made in rocket maneuverability. ie, not using fins but rather the jet propulsion itself..It goes to show Iran's not been sleeping and have been painstakingly working hard to better themselves.

This same technology can be used in Iran's anti-air missiles to reduce drag and increase speed of the missile in flight..

I didn`t say the Qiam-1 is solid-fueled.

OK. so you didn't write this: "In addition to solid Fuel a powerful good thrust to weight engine/rocket needed in air defence field."? Strange, since your user ID said you did... :think:
