An Iranian commander announces the mass delivery of the Qiam (uprising) ballistic missile system to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

“The mass production of the Qiam missile, the country’s first missile sans stabilizer fins, shows the Islamic Republic of Iran’s self-sufficiency in producing various types of missiles,” IRNA quoted Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi as saying on Sunday.

He added that Qiam’s design reduces the possibility of being detected by enemy anti-missile systems and the omission of its fins has increased the missile’s speed.

“The missile is able to hit its targets with high precision,” he said.
