‘The Rampage’ – Israeli Supersonic Missile Built To Destroy High-Quality Targets In Iran And Syria

Support SouthFront

Originally appeared at Zero Hedge

Israeli Military Industries Systems (IMI Systems) and Israel Aerospace Industries, revealed a new air-launched, GPS-guided, supersonic missile called Rampage — that can hit high-quality targets more than 90-miles away.

The missile can be mounted to the Israel Air Force’s McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle, General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon, and Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II with capabilities to launch the supersonic missile outside the enemy’s detection and interception systems.

The two Israeli state-run defense companies officially unveiled the new missile in a press release on June 11.

According to the release, the supersonic missile was produced in response to a clear operational need of the ever so expanding modern battlefield, as the “counter weapon,” against new, rapidly emerging complex air defense environments in Iran and neighboring Syria. In other words, Iran and Syria are deploying new missile shields that could render the Israeli Air Force’s (IAF) aircraft inoperable in specific regions.

In the past 12 to 18 months, both defense firms have jointly tested Rampage with the IAF and have shown the missile is fully operational.

The missile is expected to head into series production and will be available for sale in 2019. The IAF is expected to purchase the rocket “to improve its surgical high-precision strikes with minimum collateral damage,” said Israel’s Ynet News.

A video presentation shows a combination of an IAF F-16 air launching Rampage coupled with computer graphic scenes showing the missile striking enemy targets.

“Sending four fighter jets carrying four Rampage missiles [each] allows us to strike under conditions we’ve never had before,” Eli Reiter, head of IMI Systems’ Firepower Division, told Ynet.

“IMI Systems and IAI are proud to unveil a response to the challenges of modern battlefields. The Rampage joins a family of accurate rockets, which we have been providing to advanced militaries for years. Rampage complements the air response with a quantum leap in performance and extraordinary cost-effectiveness ratio, two factors which are important to many air forces around the world,” Reiter said in the company’s press release.

Boaz Levy, general manager and executive VP of IAI’s Rockets and Space Group, told Ynet that the supersonic missile’s cost is approximately one-third of the price of similar missiles being sold on the global defense market.

The missile’s warhead will be guided by GPS-assisted inertial navigation system (INS) guidance package to hit enemy targets, which will allow the warhead to strike its target during the day/night and in any weather condition.

IMI Systems told Ynet that the missile could repel an electronic warfare attack, the company added, “additional algorithm-based navigation system as a backup will give the missile immunity.”

At the beginning of 2018, Syrian anti-aircraft missiles downed an IAF’s F-16 returning from a bombing campaign on Iran-backed positions in Syria.

While the winds of war appear unavoidable in Iran and or Syria, the IAF’s need for precision-guided supersonic missiles with long-range capabilities is essential before the next major conflict erupts. Otherwise, the emerging threat of high-tech Iranian/Syrian missile shields could pose a significant threat for the IAF.

Hezbollah currently has over 120,000 missiles pointed at Israel. Israel can’t even defeat Hezbollah, never mind Iran. 90 miles range ? In a conflict between Israel & Iran, the Iranians will initially target all of israel’s air bases. Without airbases their jets can’t fly & overpriced weapons like this would be useless.


I agree. Any future high intensity conflict between Israel and Iran/Syria/Lebanon would include attacks on IAF air bases. Those may not put all of them out of operation nor even most of them, but would seriously disrupt Israeli air operations. That’s why Israel does it’s best to keep the conflict in low-intensity and proxy faze as long as possible. Any flare up would inevitably mean 100s of dead soldiers and civilians and bns $ in damaged property – something the Israeli voters are growing reluctant to accept…

John Brown

The main purpose of the 120,000 missiles is to shut down the Israeli economy and damage its economic infrastructure as racist supremacist Jews like to do to other people and to the make racist supremacist Jews suffer large financial and finally military losses. Racist supremacist Jews are terrible cowardly soldiers who love to commit crimes against humanity, especially against women and children and are only able to win against an enemy when they have vastly superior weapons, because they only fight to their last stupid animal beast Goyim slaves. Not one fingernail of the master racist supremacist Jewish slave master race is allowed to be broken.

They dont have and dont make so many spendables as You letting them die for nothing or less.

Israel and Syria can make peace by as a beginning 500.000 spendable Westbankers kan replace the 500.000 spendables in Syria. They after all were Syrians until the end of WW1, even they had no own country there for 1000 years.

You never even mention those parts of the history there. You also never mention jews were deported from there and they by thats incl. the ones in Europe, never will be deported anymore.

Its also ignored, that even Europe wont let Israel go down but only let them suffer some here and there, becqause they too oftren er not nice people themselves.

You even blame United Nations, which after all have given the refugees food and everything else since then – Waiting fr some solution.

Yours are only about who has got the best missiles.

Even islam came there as number 3 after Jews and Christians.

John Brown

you are a racist supremacist Nazi Jew and who supports the Racist supremacist Jewish Nazi genocidal slave master race.
The new African holocaust in Israel
Africans are less the 0.5 % of the Israeli population, yet accidentally make up over 60% of those forced to take Depo-Provera for forced sterilization and the African birth rate in Israel has now dropped by more then 50%.
This is what is called the only democracy in the Middle east, Yes those Africans have lots of rigths in Israel like the right to be exterminated by racist supremacist Jews.

Jens Holm

My comment has nothing to do with Jews. Its normal procedure for most militaries in the world.

They protect their soldiers as well as they can and attack and defence from distance.

You are named from whats comming from elephants behind added hay ?

Jens Holm

So why is Israel not gone, when Hesbollah is strong as You assume. You put pepper on the missiles or what.

You might at least try to see a map and what 90 miles are for or against. Its not for the many smakll firecrackers of Hesbolh but s- system by Russia and to – if needed – to hit important facilities in Syria and all 5 in Lebanon.

Much like You think You grow bigger pretending the Jews there are inventing better diapers and will send them to the rest of the world because of You.


The Israeli ambassador to the UN made the claim about Hezbollah possessing 120,000 + missiles on Fox News. I’m just stating facts, deal with it.


If that were true there would be no Israel for us to argue about.


Well the 120,000+ missiles claim was actually made by the Israeli ambassador to the UN and in 2006 Israel vowed not to leave Lebanon until Hezbollah had ceased to exist. Now Hezbollah is 6 times larger than in 2006 with much more sophisticated weapons & missiles. the balance of power is slowly but surely shifting in the direction of the resistance front.


The only reason Israel continues to survive is because the US supports Israel with $11 million dollars a day. Without that funding & support and without the US veto at the UN security council. the Zionist state would immediately cease to exist

Keithon de Bique

Hell Syria should have attacked these years ago. Israel intent is regime change via TERRORISM. Bibi himself knows Israel provides medical help to Golan based jihadists. The Yinon plan indicates such a break up of Arab unity was long digesting.

It is an air launched derivative of the ground launched Extended Range Artilery guided rocket souped up with a guidance kit, relying on GPS.

leon mc pilibin

israhelli idf are nothing but child killing cowards,man to man they are no match for Hezbollah or Syrians.Thats why they hide behind the skirts of the zio yanks.


Rampage 90 miles range! Supersonic how many mach?

The Jets will be shot by S200- BUK – Pantsir and missiles GPS will be jammed.

John Brown

They wil need the S-400 integrated with the S-300, S200- BUK – Pantsir systems to shoot down a missile like this to counter its range and to shoot down the jets carrying it.


Well 90 miles = 145 km distance for the F16 jets. S200 missiles will detect the Jet (200 km).

The exact speed of the Rampage determines if Pantsir s2 can take it out (Mach 3,5 max.).

John Brown

The reason the Pantsir s2 can take out missiles in Syria is they are linked to the radar of the Russian S-400s there for early detection and intercept telemetry. Without this support they would be far less effective


Radar networking is for early detection and tracking. Ofcourse S400 Radar is better.

But Pantsir s1 or s2 networked-integrated with S200/BUK radar already suffices = 200 km range to detect JET + missile.

Anti-Missile speed is 1.4 speed incoming missile for destruction. The exact Rampage speed is not given, but only supersonic mach 1 or 2 is not enough. Pantsir missiles would take Rampage out.


Wishful thinking, I afraid. Look up how the IAF assault on Iranian bases in Syria went down and you’ll see that this is built specifically for that kind of mission.


The F15 – 16 Jets dreamer.

If the Pantsir’s s2 are not saturated, they will take Rampage down.


It isn’t that simple:
1) Radars can tell the difference between a flying object and any hill or mountain directly behind it.
2) Radars can detect objects sooner depending on the angle it’s looking at. The sides of missiles and planes are much easier to detect than if they missile/plane is headed straight for the radar.
3) Russian air defenses compensate for this by having a web of air defenses with interlocking radars screens covering many angles.
4) In the recent IAF strikes on Iranian bases they went through rugged Lebanon in order to take advantage of a natural gap where all the radars were straight in front of the fighters. As can be seen by the aftermath such tactics can work and are equally applicable to either side.
5) Staturation methods can work but not always, it depends on how good and how much the air defenses are and how many rockets can by cycled through in a given space of time. For comparison, bayhonet charges were very effective during Napoleonic times, but were simply a waste of men in WWI.


Networked radars detect it all, unless mach 10 or so.

The Russians have it at Hmeimin airbase.

They can even stop the latest Google software steered, clouds of mini-drone attacks on Hmeimin.

If Israeli jets stay out of Syrian airspace, they can evade destruction by Syrian S200/BUK/…/PAntsir s2 whatever they have.

If Israeli jets come to close, they may get shot. So the 90 miles or 145 km limit does not get the Rampage very far into Syria.

Keithon de Bique

Israel will be short of options if Putin is not Bibi’s buddy and sell S300 to Syria as he sells the 400 to ISIS Turkey and Saudis. Standoff would shift to Syrian SAMS.


IsraHell the Great Testing-Ground of the Elite to see how far they can Go… in Killing Kids… Concentration Camps… Oppression of Humans… Population-Control …Herding them as Sheep….Walls, Checkpoints, Gates, Cameras, Security Checks Everywhere…Civil Disobidience and Uprisings will be punished with Bombs & Sniperfire…. it has given them Enough Data…to implement this on a Global Scale….This could be the Future of Humanity…

Does he pump the garbage INTO the SWAMP ?
The meme isn’t quite conclusive ;)…..comment imagecomment image


The IAF saw the kind of mission that they did against Iranian bases in Syria, and built a rocket around that. From other sources I read that it was originally a heavy rocket assisted artillery shell that they redesigned to be fired from a fighter. The idea is to get the most range and firepower out of a given precision missile without busting budgets.



lol they can attach 5 of those, that means that are pure piece of shit. Do these zionists know what is a Supersonic missiles of they just know to make interesting animations in video editing. 90 miles range lol you will have to be in very close range in the air defense system, but this missiles are not design for nothing else just to strike targets in Syria that’s it, when there is only weak air-defense, cuz Syria has most of the air-defense of the Pantsir-S1, and those are not that much good against Supersonic missiles, that’s typical indication that these are design only for Iranian targets and Syrian ofc for inside Syria, launched from the Ugly F-16 which will fly definitely from Lebanon and enter Syria and have to be 150km close to the target LOL. Hah the Zionists want to show power. AHaha


This missile is a junk yard special, made from the parts of 3 different American missiles.
As it is really a SAM, it has a very small warhead, and might be good for killing Palestinian children, but would be useless against armored targets.


This all is a little psycho-propaganda war…

Keithon de Bique

Not only is israel the aggressor this incident but attacked Syria FIRST years now. I would down more than a Sufa as Syria’s leader.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
