Intelligent Iranian Air Force gear in a likely conflict with the Arabian coalition. Are there any prospects?

30
Against the backdrop of the recent “tanker war” that erupted in the Persian and Oman Gulfs, artificially modeled and sensitively supervised by the Pentagon, as well as numerous Israeli, British and Arabian intelligence structures to discredit Tehran in the eyes of the leaders of the leading EU and Near East Asian states, the Iranian Armed Forces General Staff had to go radical measures to prevent provocative actions that could escalate into a massive regional conflict in the bay. Thus, on the instructions of the command of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, over the past few weeks, the leading state television channels of Iran have saturated the air with a number of interesting reports on the presentation of promising products of the country's defense industry.




Guided and planned bombs of the Ghaem, Yasir and Balaban families are an excellent answer to the American narrow bombs and JDAM-ER kits


Undoubtedly, the broadest range of precision instruments weapons air-based, presented by guided bombs with “Ghaem-1” and “Ghaem-9” (conceptual analogues of Turkish guided munitions MAM-L), adapted for use from the suspension units of the reconnaissance UAV “Mohajer-6” and “Ababil-3” as well as the planned guided bombs "Yasir" and "Balaban", used from the suspensions of the front-line fighter-bombers Su-22M4 and Su-24M of the Iranian Air Force and representing analogues of the planning UAB GBU-53 / B "Small Diameter Bomb II" and standard bombs Mk 82 equipped with JDAM-ER kits. A distinctive feature of these “smart” bombs is a small radar signature (effective scattering surface / EPR) of the order of 0,07 — 0,15 square. m, which reduces the range of their detection with the help of American ship Aegis radars AN / SPY-1D (V) about 3-5 times (from 320 to 60-100 km), leaving operators of Aegis systems a minimum of time for reflection a massive missile and bomb strike from the Iranian Air Force.

These bombs, equipped with infrared and semi-active laser homing heads in combination with GPS correction and an inertial navigation system, have excellent efficiency in difficult jamming environments and are full-fledged analogs of the above American bombs, losing the latter only by the criterion of range. Meanwhile, it must be remembered that for the successful use of the Ghaem-1/9 aerial bombs, as well as the Yasir and Balaban, for the Marine Corps units that advanced into the area of ​​the western coast of the Persian Gulf (Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, etc. .), tactical manned and unmanned aviation The Iranian air force will have to overcome the most powerful anti-aircraft “barrier” over the Persian Gulf, formed by the ship’s AJIS BIUS and the PAAMS air defense missile systems, deployed on the US Arleigh Burke class missile destroyers and the Daring class air defense destroyers.

Without partial suppression of the “anti-air umbrella” over the Persian Gulf, it would not be possible to use “smart bombs”


Unfortunately, in this field, the “antique” Iranian Air Force tactical fleet will not have much chance of success. RIM-174 ERAM (SM-6) anti-aircraft guided missiles, deployed in the Mk 41 launchers of the American Arleigh Burke destroyers and integrated into the Aigis' information field, are capable of hitting the Iranian tactical fighters Su-22М4, F-4E the upgraded F-7, as well as Su-24МК front-line bombers at the 180-250 km distance (long before they reach the lines of application of “smart” bomb equipment) At the same time, interception can be realized even if some Iranian tactical fighters and UAVs by some miracle can Orval "umbrella VOP 'of deck mounted multifunctional fighter F / A-18E / F« Super Hornet », and tries to overcome the low-altitude mode Arabian Gulf, hidden from detection shipborne radars AN / SPY-1D (V) outside the radio horizon.

The fact is that the RIM-174 ERAM anti-aircraft missile has an active radar seeker, as well as a module with an asynchronous data channel over the Link-16 network. This channel can be used for receiving RIM-174 ERAM missiles target designation from carrier-based aircraft AWACS E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, which will accompany low-altitude Iranian fighters and UAVs, inaccessible to detection and tracking by ship's radar. Consequently, Iranian fighters can also be intercepted outside the radio horizon.

The conclusion suggests itself: to use the aforementioned guided aerial bombs on the American military infrastructure on the west coast of the Persian Gulf of the Iranian Air Force will be able only after a preventive massive anti-ship strike on ship strike groups of the 5th operational fleet U.S. Navy and Royal Navy. To carry out such an attack, the missile brigades of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps have hundreds of Khalij Fars anti-ship operational-tactical ballistic missiles deployed on mobile mobile soil launchers in the Khormozgan ostan.

      Excuse me, what kind of requests are we talking about? belay
      Do you even know what satellite navigation is? wassat
      The receiver of satellite navigation signals receives signals from satellites and calculates according to the algorithm !!! He does not send any requests and does not transmit anything to satellites !!! hi

          Of course they won’t be able to, at the right time in this territory the signal will be encrypted and that’s it. Unless someone will provide them with their navigation system of the Russian Federation, or China, but American interference will be most powerful.

    .... That is, Iran should be the first to attack the USA ... and what will happen next ...?

    The title of the article contains the word "Coalition". Earlier, VO considered, in all seriousness, the issue of Israel's participation in this Coalition.
    I propose that the coalition be called not Arabian, but Semitic.
    Gallogroup experts can easily prove that the Jewish ethnos and the Arab are, in fact, one and the same people, having a common ancestor known in History as someone Sim. The Semites were separated by religious grounds: Jews, Sunnis, Shiites. the unification of this disunited ethnos. It is important not to miss this moment !!!!

      One must manage to shove so many distortions and absurdities into a small post ... What is the relation of the haplogroup to the concept of people? What is a norod? What makes a people a people? The Jews existed 2000 until the appearance of Shiite Sunnis, but as a Semitic people were divided ... Brad.
      About the historical moment - it can be accepted as irony, but something is in the way.

      Sim is not in history, it is in the Bible and other religious texts. The eldest son of Noah.
      There were also Ham and Japheth.
      Sim and his wife Sedukatelbab are considered the ancestors of the Semitic peoples in religious texts, and not in history.

    I don’t want to consider the scenario of the big war, I don’t have to bring it to the edge ...
    Globally, Iran may not lose, but it won’t be able to win either. The weight category of players is different.

    . conceptual analogues of Turkish guided munitions MAM-L

    Is a conceptual analogue like an iPhone with aliexpress?
    . reduces the range of their detection with the help of American ship "Aegis" radars AN / SPY-1D (V) by about 3-5 times (from 320 to 60-100 km)

    Interestingly, Damantsev really believes that bombs can be dropped from a distance of 320 km?

      And if you climb higher, into the airless? By inertia, with great speed, without friction against the air, it will fly far. True, how to enter the dense layers of the atmosphere does not burn, the problem.
      Okay, this is such a fantasy type ... fantasy! No one for atmospheric bombers yet! and specific bombs, for such a thing, like no one did.

          Several forces and factors act on the object.
          In the atmosphere - speed (not big), the lifting force of the wings, it works at a distance, the force of friction against the air, the force of attraction, against it.
          Outside the atmosphere - speed (huge), the object moves by inertia, how far it depends on the distance to the earth (with increasing gravity less) and with the original speed! if it’s very difficult to become a satellite, too! and spin, spin, until it draws to the ground! The projectile will have to be fired down the trajectory, or completely braked so that the earth pulls !!!
          In short, complex math \ cosmo-mechanic ... in principle, it is possible, but very difficult and expensive!
          Well, I wrote that this is a free fantasy! You just need to understand that this is possible! There were fears when the stripes shuttles wandered over the planet, over the USSR!

            If in the airless, then along a ballistic trajectory, the range will depend on the speed and height of the carrier at the time of reset

    In a clash only with the Arabian coalition, there are good chances, with AK + USA, without chances.

      With all the desire of the Persians to pile on the Arabs, they do not shine anything good. The Arabs have a much fresher park than the Iranians (Persians), and in the case of a sheher, Amer’s specialists who settled in Arabia will give Iran a slap in the face without getting up from the monitor.

    here you evaluate the United States as some kind of force that is immediately present everywhere with full mobilization, but in fact the Americans have difficulty mobilizing even 50 thousand soldiers somewhere in a difficult region,
    their forces are smeared, and on each particular solid-state solid fuel they have very limited power.
    for example, the United States is quite difficult to use at least 200 aircraft
    and with Iran the same situation - the United States will become more or less dangerous only after a long pull-up of forces to the bay, which they are doing now.
    Iran has significantly improved the armament of its forces, and this is no longer a confrontation between crowds and suicide bombers against airplanes; an army already exists in Iran that has strategic missile stocks.

    Here, some handsome men tried to deploy an air group on the ground to work on the Hussites, in response, the Hussites put a rocket from the time of the Glory of the CPSU on the airfield. And so as not to forget the splice, then only a couple of times they put it in parades, at airports covered by the Patriots and a cherry on the cake - according to the Patriot SAM. So then the Hussites, and if their senior comrades begin to actively oppose? For example, those that are trolling Americans with a home video featuring an aircraft carrier shot with a hidden camera from a drone?

    Yes, business. Arabs and Jews, shaving men against the Persians. If they cling, then it will not seem enough. Iranians are not Iraqis, they are ready to fight, although they are not as high-quality armed as Jews and small-shavens.
