US intends to deploy Patriot air defense system in Iraq to protect against Iran

The United States intends to deploy Patriot missile defense systems at military bases in Iraq, where the US military is deployed. This was reported by Fox News, citing sources in the Pentagon.


According to the source of the channel, the Pentagon is considering the deployment of Patriot missile defense systems at military bases subjected to a missile attack from Iran. The US military did not try to intercept Iranian missiles, since there were no missile defense systems at the locations of the US military. The US viewed Iran’s retaliation as "unlikely," so Patriot air defense systems were not deployed at an Iraqi base.

To protect these American soldiers (in Iraq - approx.), Patriot air defense systems are likely to be installed

- leads the channel source words.

Recall that Iran on January 8 launched a missile attack on American bases in Iraq in response to the assassination of General Kassem Suleimani. A total of 15 missiles were fired. Despite Pentagon claims that the strikes did not harm the U.S. military, it later became known about 11 injured U.S. military personnel who, with various injuries, were referred for treatment in hospitals in Kuwait and Landstuhl in Germany. Later, the fact that the US military received injuries during the shelling was also confirmed by the US Central Command (CENTCOM).

      The Pentagon is considering deploying Patriot anti-ballistic missile systems at military bases that suffered a missile attack from Iran.

      This is about PAC1 sample of 90 years. In 2003, PAC3 shot down 100% of the Scuds and at the same time a couple of its planes

        And the Saudis accuse them of ZERO efficiency, claiming that they missed over a hundred ballistic missiles and UAVs over the past year alone. How so?

      It would be better not only to remember, but also to know .. that the patriot of those years, as it were, should not have worked for ballistic purposes .. It’s like an air defense complex and not missile defense. Modern versions are probably already able to do something .. But that's another story.

      They would rather learn to bring down at least something with their air defense. Generally a stupid move. Iranian proxies with water pipes filled with gunpowder will fire at them, and this is not a task for the patriot. They need to deploy not only patriots, but a complex of diverse air defense systems. Won Israel would consult for a start

      Again - since America has rushed somewhere - it cannot be corroded from there by dust. Germany is still occupied, Japan too, Eastern Europe and the western part of the USSR (except the Old Man) in wet dreams dream of an American occupation. And America spit on the fact that someone wants or does not want something there. They bend their line and that's it. Imperialism ...

    If they deliver complexes sharpened for the American army with American calculations, they will be more accurate in terms of bullets compared to export ones controlled by Arabs.
    The Americans need to agree with the Israelis on the delivery of their Iron Dome in order to test the real combat against Iranian missiles.

      The iron dome is a cheap device for intercepting a large number of water pipes filled with a hardware store, which the Arabs use for lack of BM-21. Something similar in purpose to us - the Shell. These devices, in principle, OTP can not intercept.

    In instagran on the militarycolumnist website there is a satellite image from 2016, where on the Ain al-Assad base in the Iraqi province of Anbar, the positional areas of the Patriot air defense system are clearly visible, so the statement that
    "The US military did not try to intercept Iranian missiles because there were no missile defense systems in the US military. The US considered Iran’s retaliatory strike" unlikely, "so Patriot air defense systems were not deployed at an Iraqi base." looks a little strange

        Dear Old26! You're not right!
        S-400 air defense missiles easily affects cruise missiles. Missiles: 9M96E1, 9M96E2, can hit low-flying targets at a height of 5 m [8] (for comparison: the American Patriot complex is capable of hitting targets only at a height of at least 60 m).

        .
        SAM Shell-C1 also easily affects cruise missiles, as well as drones- which has been repeatedly demonstrated in Syria. "A feature of the Pantsir-C1 complex is the combination of a multi-channel target capture and tracking system with missile and artillery weapons, creating a continuous target interception zone height (minimum) from 0 m and in range (minimum) of 200 m. Reach in height of 15 km, in range of 20 km [21], even without external support. "
        "The smallest EPR for the complex 2-3 cm² [23]. This allows you to fix small reconnaissance UAVs of short range and destroy. "

    You know, the quadruple anti-aircraft machine gun "Maxim" also helps poorly from SCAD. How much can one procrastinate the events of 30 years ago, when a complex designed solely for intercepting aerodynamic targets was used on the warhead? The complex has already been modernized several times, and we continue to recall with aspiration that it helped poorly ... Well, bad, what of this? So our S-300 of the first modification was also not designed to intercept ballistic targets? Until what time will we be lenient and ironic about the weapons of our potential enemy? Until then, when this weapon will not teach us a lesson ??

It would be interesting to see how you would shoot missiles with a range of 2000 km at a range of 700 km. Have you tried to shoot down planes flying at an altitude of 3-5 km from a smoothbore gun?

        Dear mikstepanenko (Mikhail Stepanenko), you are wrong.
        "Tomahawk missile flies around the terrain over the earth at an altitude of 30-60 m (if the terrain is relatively flat) or 150 m (hilly). An on-board computer provides for the implementation of a flight program bypassing the areas of deployment of stationary air defense and missile defense systems.

        S-400 air defense missile system easily affects cruise missiles. Missiles: 9M96E1, 9M96E2, can hit low-flying targets at a height of 5 m [8] (for comparison: the American Patriot complex is capable of hitting targets only at a height of at least 60 m).

        SAM Shell- also easily affects cruise missiles, as well as drones - which has been repeatedly demonstrated in Syria. "A feature of the Pantsir-C1 complex is the combination of a multi-channel target capture and tracking system with missile and artillery weapons, creating a continuous target interception zone height (minimum) from 0 m and in range (minimum) of 200 m. Reach in height of 15 km, in range of 20 km [21], even without external support. "
        "The smallest EPR for the complex 2-3 cm² [23]. This allows you to fix small reconnaissance UAVs of short range and destroy. "

          at an altitude of 30-60 m (if the terrain is relatively flat) or 150 m (hilly).

          Somehow you do not fit the denial of my doubts with the numbers, these doubts confirm. The fact that the S-400 can intercept targets from a height of 5 meters does not mean yet. that these goals are real, especially in the form of cruise missiles. It touched the future, and nothing more. Five (and even ten) meters of height in the desert. Where do they count - from the sole of the dune or from the top? The same dune can be more than ten meters high. Plus the sand, which at such a height will certainly fall into the rocket engine, and what will happen to it then. So the phrase "drones and cruise missiles traveling at a height of 5-10 meters above the desert" refers more to fiction. But really, "Tomahawk missile flies in the mode of enveloping the terrain above the earth's surface at an altitude of 30-60 m (if the terrain is relatively flat) or 150 m (hilly)."

            mikstepanenko (Mikhail Stepanenko)! The radio altimeter will tell you where to get the rocket from, too, and the rocket will maintain a minimum flight altitude for such an area ...

              So the Poles thought the same way when they flew to Smolensk. And there, in front of the airfield, the ravine is a kilometer wide and up to 20 meters deep. While walking to the middle of the ravine everything was fine, the height as it should be. And the slope is down. And from the middle the bias is already up, as a result of a meeting with a birch. I don’t know exactly who, whether Joseph Vissarionovich or Lavrenty Pavlovich personally planted, saw the future.

    To protect these American soldiers (in Iraq - approx.), Patriot air defense systems are likely to be installed
    This is called the "US military leave Iraq."

    What kind of patriot, slingshot or even better sneakers for fast running they need. Yes, and I suspect that the transfer, the contents of these air defense missiles, according to the new tradition, will be asked to pay for the Iraqis themselves. In turn, I can send the brave wars of light at their expense to Iraq my pair of old sneakers, unless they are recognized as the highest danger category for gentle elves by bacteriological weapons))))

    Those. they are not going to fulfill Iraq’s demand for the withdrawal of troops. As expected.
    Another demonstration of the penguin's attitude to international law - all these agreements with them are not worth the paper on which they are written. They are carried out only until they consider it profitable for themselves.

    They want to take control of the airspace of Iraq by ground means, it’s cheaper than keeping fighters in the air, these are not unpretentious drones.

    In addition, to shoot down at a height of 5-10 meters above the desert, drones and cruise missiles are beyond the power of even our complexes.
    Are you sure that this is real, a cruise missile at an altitude of 5 meters?

    The height of the RCC flight above the water runs at approximately this altitude. And this is taking into account the presence of such a factor as waves. Some can even go at a height of 3 meters, of course with calm. How is the desert different from the sea surface? Virtually nothing. Both drones and the Kyrgyz Republic could well go at such a height, which means below the lower limit of any complex. No, sorry, I was mistaken. The American "eugener" is able to hit them at such a height. And this is due to the fact that he has heavy machine guns in addition to rockets ...

    It’s unfortunate that they weren’t there, they would have looked, only in the hands of the RAS-3, it’s practically useless against the BRDS or in the Amer’s too.
    If this happened to us in Syria (lack of missile defense and a successful missile strike by the adversary) - boiling up to heaven would be six months.

    And the Saudis accuse them of ZERO efficiency, claiming that they missed over a hundred ballistic missiles and UAVs over the past year alone. How so?

    Hundreds of ballistic missiles and UAVs attacked the Saudis? That they have already bent. Yemenis, if a year launches in Saudi Arabia with a dozen BRDS, then this is good.
    UAVs launch more often, but UAVs and missiles are still a big difference. And let yourself be accused of the principle of building their own air defense, disproportionate procurement and the squint of their own warriors

    This is not about the Tomahawks or our Caliber missiles. We are talking about the Iranian Quds cruise missiles, which are delivered to the same Yemen. And 3 out of 7 of these missiles crashed while firing at the Khurais field. And they didn’t fly, not because they were shot down corny, but because they crashed due to the very low flight altitude. In the photographs with the debris of these missiles, the surrounding desert is perfectly visible. There are no dunes 5-10 meters high there. Rather, barely noticeable rises.
    As for the S-400 system. Have you seen a lot of video frames and photos of the S-400 in the troops with 9M96 missiles. exclusively at exhibitions. In the troops in the plots and photographs only 46N6 family missiles

    And you look at the photos with the wreckage of the Quds cruise missile in the desert, where nobody fired at it. And where 3 of the 7 missiles crashed in the desert. And ask the question, what is the cause of this accident ...

      Dear Old26! These are only your assumptions and the media, and in the same, that they were completely Iranian. Apparently, the radio altimeter was faulty with the Hussite missiles?

      Old26, no need to write your assumptionsrockets: 9М96Е2, 9М96М long been in service since 1999 and the troops - have a minimum target destruction height
      Nmin = 5 meters. Missiles 48N6 in open sources have a minimum height of defeat Hmin = 10 meters and it will not be surprising if it turns out to be less.
