Donate

On April 25, Iran showcased three domestically designed precision-guided air-to-surface missiles that will soon enter the mass-production phase.

The three missiles, dubbed Heidar, Qamar-e Bani Hashem, and an air-launched version of the Dehlaviyeh, have a range of more than eight kilometers.

According to Fars News, the Heidar missile can be equipped with several types of seekers that would enable its deployment in different weather conditions. The one showcased appeared to be equipped with an infrared imaging seeker. The missiles can be used against armored and ground-based targets, including enemy gatherings. It warhead can penetrate 1,000mm of armour.

The second missile, Qamar-e Bani Hashem, can be also equipped with several types of seekers. However, unlike Heidar it can be also used against aerial targets. In the photos, the missile appears to be equipped with an infrared homing seeker.

Fars News said that the third missile is an air-launched version of the Dehlaviyeh anti-tank guided missile (ATGM), which is a copy of the famous Russian system Kornet. The missile is guided by a laser beam riding and can penetrate 1,200mm of armour.

The three missiles, which reportedly went through various tests, were presented on US-made AH-1J attack helicopters of the Iranian military. It’s still unclear if other types of helicopters can be armed with the new missiles.

Iran boosted its research and development in the military sector recently, likely to counter the repeated threats of the U.S. and Israel. The two countries’ attempt to pressure Tehran into giving up its missile program is apparently back-firing.

    I don’t think the USA’s strategy is to attack Iran. At least not at the moment. Rather it is to throttle Iranian oil exports and by degrees degrade the country to the point of collapse . I don’t think the USA is in a hurry to do this. I know people will point out the various ways Iran can counter the USA’s strategy. The point is this strategy does not need to be completely successful in order to produce real damage.

      “throttle Iranian oil exports and by degrees degrade the country to the point of collapse” – but that paul is an economic war, that can go into a full blown military war in a matter of minutes.

      • paul ( original )

        Yes indeed it can. But what I was trying to suggest is that this will happen only if Iran basically initiates it. I don’t think the USA feel the need to do this as the risks probably out way the benefits. I think they feel they can achieve their objectives just by biding their time.
        So as I see it Iran is in a very difficult situation. They either endure and try to circumvent the sanctions or they take a belligerent route.
        This is just my analysis. It ignores wild card events that could completely change the situation.

        • You can call me Al

          Ok, I shall go along with that.

          Have a nice weekend.

    • It is not oil but stop in credit flow that destroys …

      There is no “US strategy”. It’s basically the strategy of global Zionism and it is the same in every country where they have extended their tentacles. It just expresses itself in slightly different ways. Even in the worst case scenario for Iran The US would still be unable to force China and Russia to stop trading with Iran. Iran will always be able to sell some of its oil through a third party country like Russia if it comes to that. There is not much further room for the Jews who run the US to pressure Iran, they’ve basically done everything they could possibly do. The only thing that is left for them to do is to go to full scale war which is why Iran’s FM recently warned that the Jews might create a false flag incident to spark a military conflict between Iran and US. The problem for the Jews is that they would lose far more than they can imagine if they take that suicidal route. I somehow doubt they’re that stupid.

        Mossad’s new settlement in Patagonia would be available for those with the means, in case they are that stupid. All it takes is someone like Mike Pence to press his bible button.

      It seems like China intends to ignore American demands, and might even increase oil imports from Iran.
      China will be getting a very good price discount, which will allow them to reduce manufacturing costs and nullify US tariff taxes.
      As Iran accumulates Yuan and gold from China, it will probably buy more stuff like cars and missiles from China.

      It seems America is doing exactly what China wants, maybe Trump is a genuine Manchurian candidate?

      The US lost this war some years back.

    Most Americans do not want to attack Iran. It is the Jewish portion of America that wants our army of Goyim’s to attack Iran. Same story as with Germany. Jews wanted America to attack the indigenous people of central Europe. But Goyim’s did not want to. So Jews passed a draft law (which is illegal against the Constitution). And according to the Founding Fathers such as George Washington we are not even to fight any foreign war’s outside of our own borders.
    So under threat of prison Americans ere forced at gun point to fight in a war they did not want to and did not believe in.
    This is how Jews operate.
    And the whole thing is going to back fire and in the end Jews will have to pay (according to Karma) for everything that they have had done to other tribes.

      The vast majority of non-Evangelical Zionist Christian Americans don’t want to attack Iran but the majority of the Zionist Christian Americans do. Those Americans feel more allegiance to Israel than they do to their own country. They basically want their country to do what is best for Israel at all times.

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        That is what Jewish media propaganda did to Americans in the 1916’s 1930’s and 40’s.
        Reprogrammed people that they were suppose to go out and police the world for Jewish interest.
        Before those media lies were packaged and sold to Americans, Americans felt that their interest was solely within the US.
        Had the world simply said to the US in 1960 “No, stay home we do not want you, and quit listening to Zionist papers”
        Then none of this need ever happen.
        But the world cried out “come come” and so we came and have not left.
        Because there are still ‘Nationalist’ left in the world. Such as Russia, Iran, Korean, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and so forth.
        All of them put their people first before the globalist. So they are simply the surviving ‘Germany’s’ of today. Which all of the American 1st and 2nd war propaganda taught was evil.
        And until history is corrected and Americans learn that they were the bad guys in the First World War. Then all of this will continue.

        Traitors to their own nation and constitution . .

        Even a CIA internal memo doubts that the fake state of “Israel” can last. The whole narrative is bankrupt.

      “Most Americans do not want to attack Iran”

      How is that important, nobody takes any notice of the wants of slaves.
      The slave masters want war, to cull the excess slaves.

  • Rob

    Well done Iran. Grow up and don’t give up. Iran should know their right. Might is right.

  • Sinbad2

    Iran is making good progress in rocketry, but America is reduced to modifying their old missiles, then giving them a new paint job and name.

  • Fleecing Rabbi

    Iran has made good progress in missile technology. Now it needs to buy Russian KA-52 and SU-35 to upgrade its forces. The main reason US and Zionists want to scuttle the JCPOA is not to let the arms embargo be lifted in January 2020. Iran would be free to buy anything from anyone.

    Those Cobras, or at least the spareparts, must have been reversed engineered by Iran, unless they buy the parts from China or North Korea.
