Substantial strengthening of air defense: Iran fears American strikes

Tehran fears that Donald Trump, before leaving the post of head of state, will order a series of missile strikes on Iranian territory. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, he carried out a significant strengthening of air defense forces to protect nuclear facilities.


This was reported by the AL Qabas newspaper from Kuwait with reference to sources with information in Iran.

Iran fears American strikes on nuclear facilities or other "military events." The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) aerospace forces are responsible for protecting Iranian strategic facilities using missile systems and radar systems.

In particular, it is known that the Iranians have deployed the Bavar-373 anti-aircraft system and the Kub air defense systems near the Fordo nuclear facility. Also, the air defense of the city of Natanz in the province of Isfahan, where a uranium enrichment plant operates, has been significantly strengthened.

They used all available anti-aircraft potential to repel a possible missile strike aimed at disrupting the uranium enrichment process at these facilities, vital for the Iranian nuclear program.

- Iranian sources told the Kuwaiti newspaper.

    A strike on nuclear facilities is no longer banditry, it is beyond the limit ... the consequences can be catastrophic.

        I hope Iran has already figured it out with internal security (networks and software)? Air defense would not have helped the last time. The attack was from within. And so, yes, they are right. I wonder who puts them on the ground? Are they not ours?

              I believe that there was no military necessity for this.
              But talk about the division of Japan with the USSR stopped. hi
              You do not justify the use of nuclear weapons?

                It is clear that the Yankees wanted to scare the WORLD! And yes, there was no military necessity, there was no point in that ... although it accelerated the moment of Japan's surrender.
                So they can argue and prove them otherwise.
                Now the situation in the world is different, although some want to defend their right to be the strongest completely out of bounds.
                It is difficult to prevent them from doing this, because they have put a lot of money into some global affairs, laws, and for a long time.

                  Emotions aside, they put it in right after Trump was chosen.
                  Before him they tried to do at least some kind of appearance. The States suffered with him.

                I am sure that during World War II, any belligerent country would have thrown a bomb on the enemy if she had one.
                the Americans did it first, the Americans danced it.

                      You just get tired of listing all their examples of lies. Yes, and reluctance.

      We urgently need to deliver the S-400 and not a regiment, but a division. Then you will definitely think to attack or not.

        You can and even need to bet, but for money, it's an expensive pleasure. The article was disappointing. What is the air defense gain? Objects! Just a redeployment. I would think about the whole system, new complexes, and then ...

      Tehran fears that Donald Trump will issue an order to launch a series of missile strikes on Iranian territory before leaving the post of head of state.

      Trump can strike to introduce martial law in the states and stay at the helm ...
      And the effectiveness of the use of the American Armed Forces in the context of countering air defense will depend on the coherence and training of Iranian air defense calculations ... only on them. For amers, under certain conditions, a raid on IRAN may be FIASCO! A risky move for both the United States and Trump ... Well, Iran is also at risk ..

    For today, air defense is the key system!
    And the second necessary system is the availability of means of destruction of CARRIERS of air attack weapons.

      Everything is so, but the key system is the availability of means of inflicting irreparable damage, and what you named is the third, because there is no impenetrable air defense, and the carriers can be far and different. Not many, and now no one, can effectively fight ships, submarines, strategic aviation at the same time over a huge area.

    Iran has real reasons to fear a US strike. Therefore, the strengthening of air defense and other actions fully fit into the events taking place. Whether the United States has enough reason not to do this remains a big question.

    I think Trump is not stupid enough to trick this. Even if it goes, the development of events according to this scenario, I think ours have already hurried in advance and prepared our electronic warfare systems for a possible development of events.

      And why are our people fussing about?
      The Iranians need to fuss, which they do to the best of their ability, and partly to the Israelis, because Tehran has long been threatening that in the event of a strike on its territory, in addition to striking American bases in the range of Iranian missiles, one of the retaliatory measures will be striking Israel.

        For ours, such a scenario is also unnecessary, given that Syria is exactly between the parties to the conflict, and Turkey is nearby, can you imagine how it can flare up?
        Therefore, I think so Russia, as usual, will not be a party to the conflict, but the feasible help and advice of our military. Specialists will provide.

    Do you think they have Israel on complementary foods for a great life? Moishes, of course, think that they are the most cunning, but they can also be used on occasion.

    Iran fears US attacks on nuclear facilities or other "military events."

    It is not unreasonable to be afraid.
    There have been such strikes in recent history, and therefore are possible now.
    According to analysts, the United States and Israel can strike at least 250-300 planes. This is a serious force. The nuclear program will be suspended indefinitely, and a big war will not happen, as in previous cases.

    Why waste time on trifles. Let's give all our S-400 complexes to the Persian brothers. And along with the S-500. And as always "for free", that is, as the Owl said in the cartoon - "free of charge", that is, for free / free of charge, since with their inflation they are unlikely to be able to buy even one regimental set from us. Unless only for our own credit ... And at the same time we will train their anti-aircraft gunners in a day or two, at most in a couple of weeks ...
    Better yet, buy this division with your hard-earned money and give it to the Persians ...
