Iran has started the mass production of a domestically-manufactured anti-warship cruise missile dubbed Qadir.

The mass production of the long-range missile was launched by the Defense Ministry’s Aerospace Industries Organization in a ceremony on Saturday attended by Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan.

Several Qadir missiles were handed over to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s naval forces after it was unveiled on August 24, 2014 in a ceremony with President Hasan Rouhani and the defense chief in attendance.

Dehqan told reporters that the missile has already gone through research and prototyping processes as well as successful aviation tests.

“Today, we are simultaneously witnessing the launch of the mass production line and the delivery of this strategic and effective missile in the domain of defense and marine battle,” he said.

Qadir is a new generation of Iranian cruise missiles with a range of 300 kilometers, featuring quick reaction capability, the ability to fly at low altitude, great precision and high destructive power, he added.

He noted that the missile is equipped with advanced radars and is capable of being launched from different vessels and helicopters.
