The Tondar FACs were originally armed with Chinese C-802 anti-ship missiles and later its Iranian-version Noor. The domestically produced Qaders are extended range C-802/3 variant, with a range of 200 km and GPS assisted. Qader went into production in 2011.
Qader, first produced as shore-based launchers, are now being used on different platforms. They are fitted on F-4 Phantom fighters as air-launched anti-ship cruise missiles, and on Kaman (Combattante II)-class FACs and Jamaran-class frigates.

I wonder who controls the GPS.
