Iran announces launch of first military satellite into orbit

Iran announces launch of first military satellite into orbit

Iran put into orbit the first national military spacecraft. This was reported by the Iranian television channel IRIB with reference to the statement of the IRGC.


According to the press service of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, a satellite called Nur-1 (Noor - "Light" - Pers.) Was successfully launched into the 425-km orbit with a two-stage carrier rocket "Qased" (Qased - "Messenger", “The Messenger” - pers.). The launch was made from the cosmodrome (according to other sources - the training ground) in the Dasht-e Kavir desert. It is reported that the launch of the spacecraft into low Earth orbit was timed to coincide with the 41st anniversary of the IRGC. No other launch details are given.

Note that the launch of the military satellite "Nur" was the first successful this year after two unsuccessful ones, conducted in January and February of this year. The reasons for the failure in Tehran were called technical problems with the launch vehicle.

Meanwhile, Western media have reported that the fact of the Iranian military satellite’s orbit has not been confirmed by independent sources, so far only the Iranian media has reported this.

Earlier, the United States has repeatedly stated that Iran uses technologies used in intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) to launch satellites into space. At the same time, Washington demands to completely ban the tests of Iranian ICBMs, threatening to impose new economic sanctions against Tehran.

    successfully launched into 425 km orbit
    This is the ISS echelon. It is clear that the trajectories are different, but what if the satellite loses control, or collapses and turns into a lot of fragments of space debris?

      So long ago there is a technical opportunity. It rests on density. Wave densities cannot yet be provided. Even if you launch small missiles without warheads with 100-150kg warheads to reload air defense, everything is still not very good. Plus there is no WMD. Plus, first of all, these launchers will be knocked out, and they are stationary. So you need to ensure maximum damage in one salvo. So far, Iran is working on it.

          City from Syria ??? Well, so to the Golan is still Daraa in Damascus itself will be added. Assad will not subscribe to this. Plus, the Grad will operate the Dome, and the ICBM - PAC and other air defense.

          As for missiles to Israel, I wrote, the main problem is the inability to do irreparable harm. Well, it will fall into 20-30 missiles of 1 ton warhead in the city. AND? At the same time, stationary positions in Iran will be chosen first. That is, further, even in the presence of missiles, blows will subside.

          And then what will happen to Iran? Rather, in place of the current Iran.

          Now, if Iran had a bomb, but in the dimensions of the carrier, then the alignment would be different. Nevertheless, the real opportunity to minus 15-20% of Israel, even at the cost of suicide, is already quite a deterrent to itself.

            have a firing range of 300km. And there are CHINESE rockets. Are you sure that China did not provide Iran with the required number of missiles? )))
            I have already said - it’s enough for Iran to purchase a sufficient number of MZKT chassis and no Israeli air defense will help here - it simply won’t cope with the number of missiles that will fly to them ....

              1) By Grad - it is either Lebanon or Syria. From Iraq, more than 300 km to the border, and to delicious targets for 400. If it flies en masse, then the answer will go along Beirut or Damascus itself. Local authorities will not subscribe to this.

              2) Only this will not solve the problem of the United States - as an ally. Given the Lobby, there, and any president is bent to cover Iran, for that. Plus, again, strikes at OTRK air bases are not very effective in practice. Especially piece. To burn planes and reliably disable the base, it is necessary to concentrate the entire outfit of forces on the target. Actually, before Israel, Iran has 15-20 missiles, optimistic 40-50 per wave. Yes, there are new missiles, but every day there will be fewer and fewer launch positions.

              3) Yes, it can’t do it. But then again, without WMDs, gaps will be quite bearable. Well, let’s say a few OTRK will fly to Tel Aviv, kill 300 people. AND? Only spur on a tough answer. Or 40 planes will burn there. AND?

                  What a fierce delirium laughing . When and where did American troops fight for Israel? Israel won all of its significant wars either with the neutral attitude of the Americans, or with their active opposition.

            Sorry to interrupt, but are you not considering the "dirty bomb" from spent TVELs as an alternative WMD? Indeed, for Israel, long-term radioactive infection of the inhabited part of the country is similar to death. I don’t know whether Iran will subscribe to this, but judging by the signs of mutual “love,” the probability is quite high.

    Earlier, the United States has repeatedly stated that Iran uses technologies used in intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) to launch satellites into space.

    And what other technologies to use if a rocket launching a satellite and carrying a warhead both fly and are built on the same principles, at least recall the Korolevskaya R-7. Unless the fuel is liquid and solid and the tasks are the same.

        No. They really tried to launch the satellite in 2019 twice (both unsuccessfully) and winter 2020 (also unsuccessfully). Here it happened 4 times.

        Before that they launched such a rocket


        Such satellites


        At 250-350km.

        Now they have a normal rocket with the characteristics stated in:
        350 kg per 500 km wink This is quite an easy class at the world level in practice. Really big leap for the Iranian program. Unless of course they can bring the rocket to acceptable reliability.

    Purely technically - yes, Iran is capable of its missiles "get" the territory of Israel. But without WMD, it’s "money down the drain" ...

    I beg you, a couple of Grad batteries, plus Belarus to buy several MZKT chassis for main missiles and that’s all. Overload the air defense with a hail and immediately follow the medium-range missiles .....

    And where will you let it go? "Grad" directly from Iran? A few weather chassis won't do. According to open analytical materials, Israeli missile defense of all levels can intercept a volley of 70-80 missiles of all types. Iran is currently able to simultaneously launch about 50 units. There you have it ... all ... all ... all ...

    In order to leave Israel without aircraft, it is necessary to hit, preferably all of Israel’s military airfields at the same time. The main missiles of Iran have a CVT of about 0,5-2 km. Try to get on the strip, even without missile defense systems.

    What's the use? Iran already has a ratio of missiles to launchers of about 20 to 1. As regards providing Iran with missiles, in addition to anti-ship missiles (mainly produced under license) and Tandar-69 type ballistic missiles, China supplied nothing to Iran. The "legs" of the Iranian missile program are growing out of the North Korean program ...

    In order to buy them. The cost of one EMNIP chassis is about 30 million rubles per chassis with the 8x8 formula ...
    And almost the entire number of chassis produced goes to Russia. And about the fact that something will fly. For this it is necessary that Israel be banned from responding to missile and MLRS launchers in other g8 states. Most likely it will be possible to shoot a very small number of MLRS. Everything else will be destroyed ...

    Always respectful towards Iran. Being for a long time under the pressure of American (and not only) sanctions, they manage to create, develop
    and implement ... Let not all
    it turns out, let in something
    lagging behind but not losing heart
    on the contrary, strong in spirit.
    The only thing they, in my opinion, are underdeveloped is
    in tight allied
    relations with Russia.
