Description: The Qiam-1, which means 'Uprising' in English, is a surface-to-surface ballistic missile developed by Iran under its weapons program started in 1992 as a response to the United States arms embargo. It is fueled by liquid propellant and has an improved accuracy compared to its predecessors developed in Iran. The Qiam-1 missile has no wings which makes it faster, harder to detect and track, and thus more difficult to intercept. The Iranian Ministry of Defense (MoD) announced that the Qiam-1 was first test launched successfully on August 20, 2010. The MoD also claims that the missile is a breakthrough in terms of missile technology developed in Iran. The Iran's military took delivery of the first producton Qiam-1, also referred to as Qiyam-1, on May 22, 2011.
