The new "Soleimani" or "Haj Qasem"
missile has a diameter of about 0.91m and is 11.5m long. The RV with
a diameter of 0.68 m was adopted from the "Dezful" missile and is mounted
on conical adapter. In the long line of similar missiles, starting with
the artillerie rocket "Zelzal", followed by the "Fateh-110" variants up
to "Zolfaghar" / "Dezful", the "Soleimani" missile has a new quality.
Except for the "Raad-500", which is the first missile with a composute
fiber filament wound motor casing, all other missiles in the series, allegedly
beginning with Fateh-110 have not a composite casing.
Note: In the meantime, two new variants
("Khyber Shekan" and "Fattah")
have been introduced, which have a significantly higher range than the
previous variants. The "Fattah" is equipped with a maneuverable RV. The
"Soleimanie" missile does not appear to be for mass production.
