Iran’s military received a new ballistic missile system, which it said demonstrated the country’s self-sufficiency in mass producing weaponry.


“The new surface-to-surface missiles, Qiyam (Resurrection) 1, were successfully tested and delivered to the Armed Forces” Iran’s Arabic-language state television channel Al Alam said.

It did not disclose the range of the missile, delivered to the aerospace wing of the elite Revolutionary Guards, but said it was designed to be less easily detected than older models.

“The mass production of the Qiyam missile, the first without stabilizer fins, shows the Islamic Republic of Iran’s self-sufficiency in producing various types of missiles,” Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars news agency.
