IAI's HAROP Kamikaze Drone

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is an infamous producer of various UAVs, one of the most successful models is its HAROP.

The HAROP is a standoff loitering attack weapon system designed to locate and precisely attack targets.

The HAROP loitering missile (LM) type platform serves as an Electro-Optically guided attack weapon.

HAROP LMs are launched from ground-based launchers and controlled via a two-way data link for full man-in-the-loop operation.

HAROP is used to attack high-value targets, including full mission capabilities, from search, through attack and up to battle damage assessment.

Loitering munitions, in a way, combine the characteristics of a missile and a UAV.

The HAROP LMs are programmed before launch by the Ground Control Stations to autonomously fly to a pre-defined “Holding Area”, where they loiter. The MCS periodically checks their position and status during the route to the “Holding Area”.

The Mission Control Shelter (MCS) operator can thus control a number of HAROP LMs that loiter over a “Holding Area”, he can select one LM for target search and attack, while the others are monitored periodically.

The operator directs the selected LM to the target area and uses the video image to select a target, and to attack it.

The HAROP tracks the target and then dives on it, detonating the warhead upon impact. If required the attack can be aborted and the operator can re-attack with the same LM.

The Harop unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) has been developed from the Harpy unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), also developed by the IAI. This combat drone was unveiled in India at the Aero-India show in February 2009.

Customers of the UAV are India, Germany, Turkey, as well as Azerbaijan. These are likely also being used against Armenian targets in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Unlike other UAVs that carry explosive warheads, the Harop itself is the main munition, thus being called a loitering munition, or a suicide drone. The munition system engagements can be approved or the attacks can be aborted using the controller.

The Harop missiles can be launched from various transportable platforms including sea and ground-based canisters or air launched to navigate towards the potential target area. It can be launched at any angle, at a horizontal or vertical trajectory. The sealed container ensures it copes with harsh battlefield conditions. The launcher has a fuelling system to provide all-time readiness.

The Harop navigates and loiters in the combat area after it is launched from a vehicle-mounted container.

“The Harop navigates and loiters in the combat area after it is launched from a vehicle-mounted container.”

When the signals are exposed, it strikes the spot target immediately before its activation. The LM can operate in two guidance modes.

The Harop anti-radar homing system allows it to attack the radio-emitting and moving targets. A non-emitting target such as shutdown radars and suspected ballistic missile sites are detected by the electro-optical sensor of the RF seeker. It allows the operator to attack these targets, which are not detected by the automated homing system.

Lone Ranger

Its only dangerous if you dont have a proper air defense system or deliberately wont use it(High treason).
It looks a bit like a D-7 class K’tinga variant Klingon battlecruiser.

Anduin Lothar

It’s rly good weapon type, alot of countries are producing loitering munitions, and they also range in size. Even Kalashnikov is producing that type of drones…

Lone Ranger

Its close to useless against peer adversaries.
Its good for assymetric warfare tho.

Anduin Lothar

It’s poors man cruies missile, and it’s efective and cheap. And there is no defense against small ones with warheads of 1-2 kg. And every1 is using them, atleast 50 coutires are producing them as well.

Lone Ranger

TOR and Pantsir and Kashtan can easily take them out.
Bigger ones too like the BUK, S-300,350,400, but why waste an fortune on a cheap drone if you have the proper layered air defense to dealt with it.

Jens Holm

Thats Your usual reflexions. Things from the enymy is unclever and never works.

You even decide Your friends has a lot of missiles agaist those little ones´but at least as an “IF”. .

Both assumptions of Yours are wrong.

Lone Ranger

Still in LSD induced delirium…?
Oy…

Jens Holm

You cheat Yourself and the ones which might believe, and when it comes to the real world by fx such a kind of drone – and it mightwork very well – You dont understand whats comming.

And Your comment about that is semilar to that too. You put things into CIA, Mossad and orthers and refer to those and others are many and even deep deep dark state.

But right here, its You creating Your own dark state by not even trying to be objektive – and here even based on a few data,

Obvious You not even understand some few handfull of Syrian missiles cant protect against a determinent enemy. Those missiles might take some few of those and there are many ways to reduce the Syrian losses very well.

You seemes to eat other things in the same way too like the Armata is the best tank in the world. Its not as well as having only 10 or 20 of them anytime will loose to bunches of Leapolds, Mercavas and Abrams.

he Russian Armata is an experimental tank only. Its very good. Everybody think it in the best end – BUT – its so expensive handmade shit, so not even Russia can effort it.

Lone Ranger

Thanks for confirmation…??

cechas vodobenikov

Jenny is consistent —consistently wrong…u members of the US colony can only produce bicycles

Jens Holm

Every things cant be shot down to the ground, if its already there:)

cechas vodobenikov

do u know assumption meaning? obviously not

Ashok Varma

He is a very disturbed troll and best be ignored.

Uri

It’s funny after the Genocide of Russian air defenses committed by Harop look now,

occupybacon

Can’t wait to see them at work in Donbas :)

Lone Ranger

They dont have them.

occupybacon

Yet.

Lone Ranger

They dont have to.
In case of emergency they can easily shoot over the border.

occupybacon

Those drones can’t be shot over the Russian border.

Lone Ranger

Anything can be shot down anywhere.

occupybacon

Also the Kremlin midget, in street.

Lone Ranger

Or JFK, and Raegen by the CIA…

occupybacon

That was too fast, Putin will have it slower.

Lone Ranger

Indeed, another 30 years ;)

occupybacon

He will outlive Russia then.

Lone Ranger

U.S.*

D.C./Kievistan*

paolinks

There is no fixed and internationally recognized border between Russia and Ukraine. If you understand what I mean!

occupybacon

That’s what Russia think about all its borders.

paolinks

No, that’s the current and official State of the border between the two countries. Not even Ukraine has never tried to settle the question.

occupybacon

Wasn’t you the one who said that Armenians are Catholic, like Italians?

paolinks

Yes they are. A small percentage is orthodox.

But we are talking about Ukraine.

occupybacon

Armenians are Catholic but a small percentage are Orthodox?

Jens Holm

The Armanians has their OWN Christian church version. Its very old and was important and very big.

Thats why they are represented in Jerusalem as guards for the Christian world.

They even has their own quater there
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_Quarter

occupybacon

I know, Jens. Don’t tell me. Tell to the moron.

Jens Holm

ok

paolinks

You are the moron. Armenians aren’t orthodox. That is a fact. Gregorian is different from oriental orthodoxy.

occupybacon

LOL I didn’t even said they are Orthodox in my previous comments. You said they are Catholic. And still I am the moron for you :)

They are called Oriental Orthodox. Which is different than Eastern Orthodox (ex: Russia).

paolinks

This is because, before the council of Chalcedon, the oriental orthodox church and western roman church, shared communion.

So yes, they are catholic, like the roman church.

occupybacon

Armenian church is part of the Oriental Orthodox.

paolinks

And the Catholic Roman Church is part of the Occidental Orthodox. Orthodoxy, in the religious parlance, means a specific set of rules and creeds that are the foundation of a specific religion.

Before 1054 A.D. there was no separation between occidental and oriental orthodoxy. The romans promoted a schism and two orthodoxies separated. The western one is simply known as the catholic church, the eastern ones as orthodox churches.

But all of them are catholic and orthodox.

paolinks

Yes, they are Gregorian christians. Then there are evangelical protestants. Then yazidis ( their religion is yazidism ), muslims ( kurds and azeris ). In last place there are orthodox christians.

occupybacon

I’m used to talk with morons but not with retards. Bye.

Jens Holm

The Armanians has their OWN Christian church version. Its very old and was important and very big…

If Ukrops try to use Harop and TB2…then Russia will provide Donbass with Pantsir & Tor system

occupybacon

Very well, I want to see those in action too. May the best prevail.

paolinks

Can’t wait to see the Donbass army in Kiev! This damn treacherous terrorist nest https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/ex-ukrainian-lawmaker-accuses-ex-president-of-supply-syrian-militants-with-weapons/

occupybacon

Almost everybody supplied Syrian militants with weapons, even Serbia.

occupybacon

Sure, led by Motorola, Givi and Zakharcenko

Rhodium 10

Also Sosna, Verba and even SA-24 manpads can take them out!…

Lone Ranger

Indeed.
Im telling it again, Armenia is lead by traitors.
They are deliberately inflating bodycount and material loss.

paolinks

Heck, I can take them off with a shotgun!!

Jens Holm

I vote for Your oppinion.

Rhodium 10

Shot down by Armenian SA-8https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAUt8Nrw2zI

ecocivilian

they use it when palestinian kids throw stones at them that is how brave those undermenshen are

Free man

They have a built in low IQ brainwave radar.
You should quickly put on your tinfoil hat.

Jens Holm

And Allah will connect it to a powerplant and execute …

Jens Holm

I would.

Throwing stones on each other is strictly forbidden, where I come:)

Free man

“bit like a D-7 class K’tinga variant Klingon battlecruiser.” – Are you implying that these Zionists use alien technology? (-;
In a serious tone – reality shows that they are very dangerous. It is not possible to attach an air defense system to every tank or company of fighters.

Great Khan

You Jew bitch. Khan laugh hahha

Free man

Only particularly stupid people write like Khan.
Translation For Khan : Khan NO smart, Khan Very stupid, Khan Cry hahha.

Great Khan

Khan laugh even more yekshima hahhahaha

Lone Ranger

Sometimes art copies reality sometimes its vice versa.
That drone is very maneuverable, with big wingd and lifting body area, yet the weight is in the rear, it can point its nose at any direction and the rest follows, smart design
You dont have to.
Radars an IR sensors and LIDARS can cover a big area, you only have to place the SAM launchers in range.
The launcher and the sensor and Command system dobt even hace to be at the same location, at least in case if Russian SAMs.
Jihadis launched 30 drone attacks on Latakia sometimes with dozens of advanced drones, all attempts failed non got through.
But than again… Russia has the Best air defense on the planet.

cechas vodobenikov

how does the Israeli drone compare to others? do they operate well in mountains?

Lone Ranger

They seem to work fine in that area.

Free man

I get what you are saying .
But Armenia is not Russia. Armenia is a poor country with limited resources.

Lone Ranger

Thats true.
They are also lead by traitors.

Free man

I don’t know about “traitors”. I would define them differently.
But I believe it would have been possible to reach a diplomatic solution and prevent this war.

Lone Ranger

That would have been the bare minimum.

Free man

Maybe, but I’m not sure.
This war could develop into a regional war as the Iranian president said and the consequences could be much more devastating for Armenia.
This is a cliché, but it’s true that you know how a war begins but you do not know how it will ends.

Lone Ranger

True.

Great Khan

Jew steal design from stupid fat American loser.

Ashok Varma

Israel in its short term greed will rue the day it sold Azerbaijan and Turkey these drones. They most likely have been replicated by Turkey and Iran by now.

cechas vodobenikov

Iran has created many advanced drones–don’t know if they creat the same style

Ashok Varma

I just saw a photo on Persian Defense site and it looks like a Harpy.

comment image

cechas vodobenikov

are they effective? much is written about drones. it seems that LR is correct; without defense systems they are effective vs military vehicles…perhaps SF will publish something about this

Uri

It’s funny how the post aged well.

Great Khan

Jew bitch, make money sell drone to kill people.

Servet Köseoğlu

Virtus Junxit Mors Non Separabit..Love ya İsrael but please sell Super High Explosive Artillery Projectile as well!!!

JDAM

its a yid murder weapon because the foreskin suckers cannot fight and win conventionally

cechas vodobenikov

I am unqualified to judge drones; this seems lethal and effective, Does SF possess any experts that compare different drones?

<>

Soon it will fall down on many Hezbollahs heads, just give us a reason.

Ashok Varma

Are you related to Baghdad Bob? as you are an Iraqi.

A Jewish Iraqi, so no.
