Earlier, the army announced firing Qaher 1 missile on King Khaled air Base in Khamis Mushayt. The missile was unveiled on December 2016. Qaher 1 is a ballistic missile of the model of "Sam 2" and was developed and adjusted locally.

It works in two stages, solid fuel and liquid and reaches a range of 250 km. Its length is 11 meters and weight two tons.

In 2016, August, the army and popular forces Committees announced the entry of the "Sarkha" missile in the battlefield. The Surkha has a range of 17 kilometers and its warhead weighing 15 km and two meters in length.

The first missile locally manufactured or developed is (Al-Najm Thaqib 1 and 2), which were announced both at once, as well as it entered in the battlefield.
