Cruise Missiles Delivered to Navy

A large number of domestically developed anti-ship Qadir cruise missiles were delivered to the navy in a ceremony to mark National Navy Day on Sunday.
Speaking in the ceremony, Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said it has a short setup and reaction time, flies at low altitudes with high navigation capabilities, hits the targets precisely with great destructive power and suits electronic warfare, Tasnim News Agency reported.
The Qadir can be launched from various types of vessels and even helicopters, helping extend its operational range.
The previous videos of Qadir show it identifying and destroying a naval target 300 kilometers away from the coast.
The homegrown cruise naval missile was unveiled in August 2014 during a ceremony attended by President Hassan Rouhani.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing military equipment and systems. Tehran has repeatedly assured other nations that its military capabilities pose no threat to regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
