BGM-7? you guys probably mean BGM-71

Zionism = EVIL

The Toophan (Persian: طوفان‎ “Storm”, rarely Toofan) is an Iranian SACLOS upgraded anti-tank guided missile reverse-engineered from the American BGM-71 TOW missile. The Toophan 1, an unlicensed copy of the BGM-71A TOW missile, began mass production in 1988 and the Toophan 2, a BGM-71C ITOW variant, was publicly shown in 2000.] The Toophan comes in at least 11 variants, many of which are poorly documented due to lack of western intelligence on growing Iranian military capabilities, including variants with laser guidance, thermobaric warheads, and tandem-warheads with increased penetration. The Toophan is manufactured jointly by the Aerospace Industries Organization of Iran and Iran Electronics Industries.

The Toophan is normally deployed from ground-based tripods, and can also be mounted on fighting vehicles and helicopters. Like the BGM-71 TOW missile, the Toophan is a large, rugged, powerful, and reliable anti-tank guided missile deployed by small teams against tanks, armored vehicles, buildings, and other targets. The Toophan forms the backbone of the Iranian Armed Forces’s extensive ATGM inventory and is procured in large quantities in a variety of variants. The Toophan has been exported to the governments of Iraq and Syria and to a large number of non-state Iranian allies in the Middle East and Asia, and has been successfully used in the Iran–Iraq War, the 2006 Lebanon War and the Iraqi, Syrian, and Yemeni conflicts.

First of all DUMBASS, it is DOES, not DOSE and I can go on and on, but the reality is that Southfront does a good job with its limited resources. Yesterday, you arseholes were criticizing Russian SAM systems and today it is typos LOL. Another FACT cupcake is that Iran has the largest inventory of TOWS and its derivatives, so deal with it.

well dose does it dosent matter since your understood what i said and you got butthurt about it infact your retarded friend called me a nazi and a jew at the same time XD i mean from what i can gather you ppl are ether extremely stupid or have some sort of mental issues since no normal person can be this stubborn and just plain butthurt about simple questions and corrections.
Also i mean the critisizam of Russian SAMs is grounded on facts you tell me why did the Russian made SAM’s sebria had only shot down 2 fixed wing manned aicraft in the war of 1999 or their complete failiure in Iraq in 1991 and 2003 or their current failiure to stop IAF strikes on the SAA yes the SAA shot down one F16I but 1 aircraft was shot down 2 years ago mind you and yet the strikes never stoped how many IDF soldiers has the SAA killed and how many SAA soldiers has the IDF killed?

“Another FACT cupcake is that Iran has the largest inventory of TOWS and its derivatives, so deal with it.” again what relevance dose irans outdated TOW knokoffs and it haveing the largest imout of them have to do with what i said.

This article is about US TOWS that Iran now manufactures and is currently the largest producer, so it is very relevant and useful to know. Iran should be commended for all its scientific achievements despite relentless and unjust sanctions.

Martin Petrovski

“scientific achievements” since when is copying a system that?
Also this is a article about the US TOW not the iranian one the Toophan can have its own.
