The Sadid-1 (also known as the Sadid-361, the Fat'h 362,[1] and the Sadid-342) is an Iranian TV-guided anti-tank missile derived from Iran's Toophan missiles.[2]

It is described by multiple sources as similar in design to the Israeli Spike-ER missile,[3][4] and was intended as the armament for Iran's Shahed 129 UAV.

Specifications[edit]

A mockup of the Sadid-1 was first seen at Iran's 2010 Kish Air Show.[3] As of 2016, the Sadid-1's guidance system, laser/TV seeker and propulsion unit were still under development.[5]

Detailed information about the Sadid-1 has not been disclosed; however, it is believed to be about 140 cm long, to have a range of 4000 meters, and to have a maximum flight time of about thirty seconds.[6]

Operational history[edit]

The Sadid-1 was a proposed armament for the Shahed 216, an exceptionally obscure attack helicopter proposal from HESA/Shahed Aviation around 2015.[6]

The Sadid-1 was not operationally deployed on the Shahed 129; one source says this was due to problems with the launcher mechanism and guidance system,[4] while another source says that R&D was not completed because American sanctions prevented Iran from obtaining necessary components.[7]

In 2018, Iran claimed to use Sadid-1 munitions dropped from a Saegheh UAV.[8]
