The Noor is a long-range anti-ship cruise missile manufactured by Iran. This missile is in service with Navy of Iran.


TELs for Noor/Qader missiles. The TEL can be disguised as a civilian truck.

Iran was the first export customer of Chinese C-802 missile. The contract was signed in 1995 but was canceled when 60 missiles were delivered due to US pressure. After that Iran started a program to reverse engineer C-802.[1]

It is unknown when the program was finished, but in 2000 and early 2001, Iran tested an upgraded C-802 missile during Unity-79 wargames.[2] Officials said that the range of the missile is increased from 30 km to 130 km.[3]

The missile is powered by Toloue-4, an Iranian version of the French Microturbo TRI 60 engine[4]

In January 2004, Iran announced that it has started manufacturing the DM-3B mono pulse radar for Noor missile.[5] According to Iranian officials, DM-3B is a millimeter-wave active radar used in the last stage of missile flight to find the target and home in the missile on it.[6] Because of its frequency, it is very hard to jam the radar which is located inside the nosecone.[7]

In 2006, it was announced that the missile's range has been increased further to 170 km.[8][9]

In 2011, another variant called Qader was unveiled by Iran with a range of 200 km and the ability to attack coastal targets. A video of the missile hitting its coastal target was published by the Iranian media.[10][11][12]

In early 2012, during Velayete-90 wargames, a Noor missile was tested with improvements in electronic systems, a more jam-resistant radar and better target acquisition algorithms. A Qader missile was also tested in the wargame.[13]
