GIDS Exhibits Airborne Stand-Off Missile Taimur

The Taimoor is a stand-off anti-ship and land attack cruise missile designed as a jet-launched missile for air-to-surface assault missions. The modular missile has an aerodynamic box-shaped fuselage with an imaging infrared (IIR) seeker in front, mid-body foldable wings on the lower surface, and tail control surfaces and a turbojet engine in the back. The turbojet motor's air inlet is located beneath the missile body, between the wings and fins. It also has an armour-piercing fragmentation warhead.

According to GIDS, the turbojet-powered missile weighs less than 1,200 kg and has an operational range of 290 km. It has terrain-hugging and sea-skimming capabilities; can cruise at altitudes ranging from 152 m (500 ft) to 6,096 m (20,000 ft) at subsonic speeds; and has a launch altitude ranging from 610 m (2,000 ft) to 7,620 m (25,000 ft).

The missile can be carried on the JF-17's external underwing pylons and other compatible jet platforms. JF-17 is capable of carrying two Taimoor missiles.

GIDS presented Taimoor at IDEX2023, UAE, for the first time.
