Iran is going to increase the range of its ballistic missiles to 5000 km

44

One of the main tasks in the field of increasing the defense capability of Iran is the implementation of the missile program, including increasing the range of ballistic missiles. Despite ongoing negotiations on a nuclear deal in Vienna, Tehran is also conducting missile tests at the same time. Thus, Iran makes it clear to Europe and not only to it that it has extensive opportunities to protect its interests.


Not so long ago, a solid-propellant engine was tested in Iran, capable of increasing the range of Iranian missiles to 5000 kilometers. If Iran has missiles of this range, it will be able to threaten European capitals. The current president of the Islamic Republic, Ibrahim Raisi, by the way, demonstrates a more uncompromising policy in the field of missile weapons than his predecessors. For this, he is praised by the Iranian press, which is understandable: the situation in the world is now tense and Tehran needs to increase its defense capability.

The Iranian newspaper Farhikhtegan published an article on January 15 that Iran is working to increase the range of its ballistic missiles to 5 km. The publication cited the point of view of Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, who commands the aerospace forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). The general announced the successful testing of a new rocket engine called "Raafe". Also, according to Hajizade, the new missile has a composite rather than a metal structure, which also played a role in increasing the flight range.

At the same time, the general stressed that Iran cannot be intimidated by attacks on physicists and sanctions, and the country will not refuse to implement its missile program. Of course, the United States, Israel, and Europe are very concerned about the growth of Iran's real capabilities in the field of rocket science. However, there is little the West can do now. Moreover, back in 2017, General Hossein Salami warned Europe about a possible increase in the range of Iranian missiles, which would cover the distance between the Islamic Republic and key European centers.

The Israeli press, in turn, calls Iran's space programs another lever of pressure on the West during negotiations on a nuclear deal. Although the West insists on including Iran's missile activities in the negotiations, the Iranian leadership is fiercely resisting this and stressing its unwillingness to abandon the missile program.

      Zuljanah is already being tested.
      Iran has tested a new launch vehicle. Yesterday, February 3, the Al Jazeera news agency reported that the Iranian Defense Ministry had tested a new missile called the Zuljanah.

      The launch of the rocket was shown on Iranian state television, the date and place of the tests were not named. According to official data, Zuljanah is a three-stage rocket and can launch satellites weighing up to 500 kg into low Earth orbit (up to 220 km).




      .Some countries have already questioned the space mission of Zuljanah. Forbes magazine indicates that when changing the trajectory, the launch vehicle will be able to overcome about 5000 km, carrying a nuclear warhead weighing up to 1 ton.

    It is unlikely that Iran is interested in Europe as a target, it is much more interested in selling oil to them. But American bases in Europe will definitely become priority targets.

      It is necessary to "get" to the territory of possible opponents. It's one thing to hit a military base in BV (say the USA) and it's completely different to hit the territory of the USA itself ...... in Europe, countries that purely physically can do something to Iran - only France and Britain .....

          Iran has a long military cooperation with North Korea, the first Iranian missiles based on the Soviet "SCAD" were developed with the help of North Korean specialists. North Korea is actively developing and testing missiles of various ranges, while the North Koreans are in dire need of currency, the Iranians need technology, which leads to mutually beneficial cooperation, there are unconfirmed reports that North Korean nuclear scientists came and worked in Iran.

            As for me, the friendship / cooperation of countries that want to live their own mind, sovereign, cooperated and will continue to cooperate.
            This is logical and no one can stop them, already, can.

    How will Russia end up at war with Ukraine and break up such a wonderful business and be at the same time out of the side chapels? Here's how?
    Armenians to advance to clear the road to Persia, easily! And Poshinyan will cover this with rhetoric about Armenian patriotism and great love for the United States!

    Along the way, the point of no return has been passed, because they agreed on a nuclear deal. Now, as they say, eat. But the distance is still embarrassing, why so much all the same? It's not cheap, but Israel's main enemy is much closer? Does anyone know?

      Why is it embarrassing? The state is developing its space program, preparing to launch a low-orbit satellite, and a range of 5000 km is already a side effect ... Sooner or later they will want to launch a communication satellite to a solar station, and this, excuse me, is almost 39000 km above the equator ... Given that Iran does not have cosmodrome in the evatorial belt, then the power of the missiles should be appropriate, well, and the range ... - the range is a side effect ((((

      Iran's Islamic revolution is a project with global ambitions, while they are dragging out negotiations on the nuclear program with the gay Europeans, they are developing strategic forces in parallel. They will get stronger, they will press the Arabs, then the Caucasus and the Turks, Russia. They will take on the idolaters of the Hindus. Or before that, the Mahdi will come and the Great Judgment will take place. But it doesn't matter to them yet, so they act in the canon of Shiism today and will definitely go to heaven.
