Tehran, Oct 11, IRNA
– Defense minister announced on Sunday that a long-range surface-to-surface missile dubbed 'Emad' (Pillar) as new generation of the ballistic missiles was test-fired successfully.
Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the Defense Ministry's strategy is to develop and complete the armed forces' missile capability and strengthen the defense power.
He said Emad has been designed and built by the Iranian experts.Emad, he said, is the first Iran's long-range missile that can be directed and controlled till it strikes the target.
Emad is also capable of scrutinizing the targets and destroying them completely, the minister said.
'To follow our defense programs, we don't ask permission from anyone,' stressed Dehqan.
) Iran has successfully test fired a new long-range surface-to-surface missile, state-run IRNA reported on Sunday.
The Emad (Pillar) missile, designed and built by Iranian experts, is the country's first long-range missile that can be precision guided until it reaches its target
, said Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan, Iran's defense minister.
"To follow our defense programs, we don't ask permission from anyone," he said, according to IRNA.
Anthony Cordesman, a researcher at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, wrote in October last year that the Emad was a variant of Iran's existing Shahab-3
long-range missile, "but with a maneuvering reentry vehicle to improve system accuracy and complicate missile defense
."The liquid-propelled rocket had a range of 1,700 kilometers (1,056 miles) and was accurate to within 500 meters (547 yards) of the target.The rocket could carry a 750 kg (1,653 pound) payload, and was scheduled for deployment some time after 2016
, he wrote.
Shahab-3技术来自朝鲜的“芦洞”导弹，是单级液体中程导弹，射程约1700 km，一般估计CEP为1~2 km。
Emad使用了新型弹头，外形为双锥体加四个气动舵，具有一定的再入机动能力，可以提高突防能力。据说CEP<500 m，可能还是纯惯导，没有末制导。而射程相近、加装末制导的先进中程导弹，如潘兴II和DF-21C的命中精度为CEP<30 m。
