The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) displayed a number of its ballistic and cruise missiles during the annual nationwide February 11th rallies marking the 40th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.


Millions of Iranians in Tehran and other cities throughout the country poured to the streets on Monday to show their unconditional support for the Islamic Republic through staging massive rallies on February 11th. 

Huge masses of people from all walks of life converged on streets and squares all over the country to express their support for the cause and ideals of the Islamic Revolution.

The IRGC displayed three of its latest ballistic and cruise missiles, namely Qadr, Qiam and Zolfaqar, during the rallies in Tehran.

Qadr is a 2000km-range, liquid-fuel and ballistic missile which can reach territories as far as Israel.

The missile can carry different types of ‘Blast’ and ‘MRV’ (Multiple Reentry Vehicle) payloads to destroy a range of targets. The new version of Qadr H can be launched from mobile platforms or silos in different positions and can escape missile defense shields due to their radar-evading capability.

Iran in September 2016 started mass-production of home-made Zolfaqar missile that carries a Multiple Re-entry Vehicle payload and can destroy targets in distances up to 700km in range with a zero margin of error.

Zolfaqar, the latest generation of Iran's mid-range missiles, which was unveiled during the nationwide parades of Armed Forces in September 2016, is capable of carrying MRV payloads and can rain down missiles on ground targets with a high level of precision-striking power.

Qiam missile is also capable of carrying different types of ‘Blast’ and ‘MRV’ payloads, and can destroy a wide range of targets. It can be launched from mobile platforms or silos in different positions and can escape missile defense shields due to its radar-evading capability.

Qiam is also a new type of surface-to-surface and cruise missile of Iran.

A sum of 6,500 Iranian and foreign journalists, reporters and photographers covered the Bahman 22 (February 11) rallies this year.
