Military Knowledge: Qadr Ballistic Missile
The Qadr missile is a medium-range ballistic missile based on the Shahab 3 missile. In the past, this missile was also called Qadr 1, Qadr 110 and Qadr 101.
The Qadr missile was unveiled for the first time in an annual parade marking the anniversary of the start of the Iran-Iraq war. This missile has been produced in three types: “Qadr S” with a range of 1,350 km, “Qadr H” with a range of 1,650 km and “Qadr F” with a range of 1,950 km.
The Qadr missile set-up time is 30 minutes and is much faster than the Shahab 3 missile, which takes hours to install and launch. Some sources consider the Qadr missile a two-stage missile, the first stage is liquid fuel and the second stage, which is related to detachable warheads, is solid fuel. However, some sources believe this missile to be just liquid fuel.
The speed of the “Qadr F” missile is estimated at Mach 9 and its navigation system is based on inertia-GPS guidance.
The Qadr F missile is capable of carrying warheads weighing up to 1000 kg. Qadr series missiles also have warheads in different types such as blast and cluster.
