Qiam 1 (rising 1), IRI’s new surface to surface missile, has been successfully test fired, Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said, adding that the missile is equipped with a smart navigation system, which decreases the possibility of it being targeted by other projectiles.
“Being a new class of Iranian missiles, Qiam 1 has been equipped with new technical specifications and exceptional tactical powers,” the general said during this week’s Friday prayers in Tehran.
“Qiam 1 is part of the new generation of the Islamic Republic’s surface to surface missiles with liquid fuel and completely designed and built domestically,” General Vahidi noted.
Vahidi added that the liquid-fuel missile’s launch time is low due to its smart targeting system. “It enjoys enhanced agility due to the scrapping of its fins.”
“The missile can hit targets with high precision,” the general noted.
