Description
The Sayyad-1 (Hunter I) is a static surface-to-air missile system which is a development of the Russian S-75 (NATO SA-2 Guideline) system. The Sayad is also heavily influenced by the Chinese HQ-2 and may benefit from North Korean technology input. Iran has acquired surface-to-air missiles modified with chemical weapons. Western intelligence sources said Iran has acquired modified SA-2 air defense systems from North Korea. They said Pyongyang has converted the SA-2 from a surface-to-air to a surface-to-surface missile. On 14 April 1999, the Iranian armed forces carried out a successful test of a surface-to-air missile. A spokesman of the Iranian Iranian Ministry of Defense reported "the missile was able to hit its target at an appropriate altitude." This missile was designated Sayyad-1, named for assassinated commander Lt-Gen. Ali Sayyad-Shirazi. Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics spokesman Keyvan Khosrawi said that the missile was produced completely by the Airspace Industries Organization, affiliated to the Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics. Iranian defense ministry officials acknowledged that the Sayyad-1 missile was a SA-2 of Chinese design, but was at least partially manufactured in Iran.

Missile support
In static position, the Saya-1 is mounted to a launcher station. The basic design qualifies as semi-mobile, requiring several hours to set up or redeploy a battery. Each missile is carried by a semi-trailer towed by a 6x6 truck and needs to be loaded onto a fixed launcher before firing. The loading usually takes about 5 minutes but this really depends on the training and experience of missile operators.
Missile
The Sayad-1 is a two-stage guided missile, with a large solid propellant booster stage fitted with four very large delta fins.The warhead of the Sayyad-1 weighs 195 kg and is a HE internally grooved fragmentation type with proximity, contact and command-type fuzing available.
Combat use
The Sayad-1 missile, considering its medium-range can be applied for targets, rather in low or high altitude. also it has the capability for protecting the economic, political and social centers. The main mission of the Sayad-1 missile can be defined for the destruction of targets as bombers and reconnaissance aircraft, considering their wide radar cross - section (RCS).
