Tehran (IP) – The Ya-Ali cruise missile is the first ground attack cruise missile designed and built by the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force.

Iran PressIran News: The details are as follows:


The Ya-Ali cruise missile was first unveiled on May 13, 2014 when the Commander-in-Chief of Iran's Armed Forces, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, visited the IRGC Aerospace Force's exhibition.

The missile was displayed in red at the exhibition; according to officials, it has a turbojet engine with a range of 700 km, and its warhead weighs about 200 kg.

The missile is fired from ground platforms and also can be launched from aircraft. Ya-Ali cruise missile can be installed on fighters and helicopters; launching this missile from different aircraft will significantly increase its range. Additionally, it has the necessary capabilities to destroy long-range naval targets.


According to footage released from the unveiling, the Ya-Ali cruise missile has a cylindrical fuselage, fixed rectangular wings, a jet engine at the end of the fuselage and air intake below it, and control wings at the end of the fuselage. Because of the large wing and its cross-sectional shape, it can be said that the maximum speed of the Ya-Ali cruise missile, like other similar missiles, is less than the speed of sound.

Like many cruise missiles launched from the ground, the Ya-Ali missile has a solid fuel booster.
