Iran showed underground ballistic missile multiple launch rocket system

40

Iran has demonstrated a multiple rocket launcher system that uses rails to quickly airlift ready-to-fire shells in its "underground missile cities".


On Wednesday, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps unveiled a new automated rapid transport and launch system for its long-range ballistic missiles. The complex featured in a local TV report uses rails to move weapons on the "catacombs".

The system is capable of simultaneously transporting up to four long-range missiles through the secret underground "labyrinths" of Iran, the existence of which became widely known only recently.

The commander of the IRGC, Major General Hossein Salami, attended the opening ceremony of the complex, saying that "the flight of our missiles will shock the enemy, and their force will force the enemy to retreat." Salami added that the military potential of Iran makes it possible to demonstrate its political will and "if necessary, impose it on the enemy."

Over the past decades, Iran has made great strides in the development of new types of weapons, in particular, having transferred to the army a number of short, medium and long-range missiles, as well as stealth cruise missiles with a range of 40 to 3000 km.

According to the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies, Tehran has "the largest and most diverse missile arsenal in the Middle East," consisting of "thousands of ballistic and cruise missiles, some of which are capable of striking targets as far as Israel and Southeast Europe." ...

    I wonder why Iran decided to "flap" its weapons? Such ground systems are not easy to destroy.
    Apparently, this is how they react to the news about Biden's possible victory in the US elections.

      Iran doesn't care who wins there. He would be satisfied with a complete Armageddian in the states.

        I think Biden is able to easily unleash the War with Iran, his statements and lobbying actions on Iran are a direct confirmation of this!

          Trump is more pro-Israel, his son-in-law is from the Ashkenazi.

            It would be from Sfaradi or Mizrahi - worse for the Persians. And if from the Israeli Slavs who came from the USSR - lol there is generally one attitude towards Iran and the Arabs - bombing in the squares + clearing until the Israeli flag is hung over the palace of Rahbar laughing

              "Comprehensive agreement .." under which Iran refused to develop nuclear weapons, and sanctions were lifted from it, was developed by the Obama administration. And Biden was there. yes
              With the victory of the Democrats, the pressure on Iran will definitely ease. Europe is very interested in this.
              So Israel is looking for evidence of Iran's malice.
              Most likely, the Democrats will restore the "Agreement ...".
              And even more so, Biden will not start a war.
              As for the miscalculation of risks by Trump - with the assassination of Soleimani, he miscalculated the risks. hi

                Why bad? The Iranians made a treaty, the tables did not lose face - for the death of the general, they warned the Americans in advance (through Iraq) of a planned missile strike, so instead of terrorist attacks on Yankee targets around the world, Trump got shell-shocked tons of eastern show-offs around the "Retaliation Action" - easy got off! ))

                  Personally, of course, I am not aware of all the details.
                  What Iran has already done, and what is still going to.
                  So wait and see.
                  Especially if Trump is not re-elected.
                  And much that is happening indicates such an outcome.
                  As a result, PMSM - there are fewer pluses than minuses. And a stain on your reputation.
                  Suleimani, IMHO, the Israelis ordered.

                      Israelis could and did

                      But for some reason they did not. They take care of their heads.
                      And Trump apparently did not hear about blood feud.
                      And it's not about the frame. The structure continues to work.

                        When nuclear scientists died in Iran and facilities of the IRGC exploded, the Israelis did not think about their heads, just like during the bombing of Hezbollah and the Persians in Syria. Well, if they reckoned with blood feud, then, probably, the Jews of their country in the Middle East would never have built hi

                        All of you write correctly. But scientists and objects are one thing, and top management is another.
                        And the top management is not immortal and usually does not touch colleagues.
                        Yasser Arafat, for example, lived quietly. And everyone knew where. He shed no less blood than Suleimani.
                        However, there is nothing to argue about. We have what we have.

      The principle of "Chekhov's rifle" even took root in drama, this is when every element of the narrative must be necessary, and insignificant elements must be removed; in the story there should not appear elements that deceive the expectations of the viewer by the fact that they will never play a role in further events.

    Good morning, Aleksey!
    They are afraid of Trump - after the elections he might just "hit". They also deployed their multilayer air defense near Damascus - Israel until they bombed for a month, like
    If it blows (and in theory it will be able to work with drones + aviation without losses, in theory) - they will have to react, for internal reasons.

    In reality, Iran began to amaze with its development in the military-technical sphere. Fact!
    Own development of drones, both airborne and land and sea, own air defense systems, RMSD ...

    It remains only to pay tribute to their desire to protect themselves to the maximum, relying not only on imports, but relying primarily on themselves.

    Iran demonstrated a multiple launch rocket system,
    And where, where did he demonstrate it, that I never saw it ...
    Of course it looks interesting, but a lot of questions immediately arise. And why do they transport them in an upright position? The missile is more unstable in it, but if the enemy strikes this shelter with nuclear weapons or nature will arrange an earthquake there, will they survive? And so I understand there are two options:
    - they are trying to transport them to firing positions, so they would be shown it would be more interesting. It seems to me that in this way it would be good to feed the rockets for loading the "rocket revolving drum" ... fellow
    - they are transported for "general vertical tests" or simply for verification what
    And in general, I'm surprised that the Iranians still do not place swot missiles in containers, so they would be stored more reliably, and it would be possible to use a container for launch, which is not unimportant for an underground launch

    Plus, in addition to the pressure gates themselves, there are also external devices that can be disabled and will multiply such structures to zero

    It is very difficult to store liquids in containers. This is not a solid propellant, which was placed in a container and just know support TBR. They have not yet reached the technology of long-term storage of fueled missiles. This means that the missiles are not refueled and are refueled only in preparation for launch. And those that are solid fuel - they do not yet exist in the TPK. Probably not mastered mortar launch

    If the Americans seriously deal with Iran, I think all these underground installations will remain intact and not harmful. But on the surface there will be nothing. The fact is that Iranian nuclear weapons are Iranian !!!!! It’s not a fact that it will work at all. Well, but the fact that it won’t reach anywhere is exactly what one may say
