Iranian army tests satellite-guided missiles during exercises

Iranian ground forces tested two guided missiles during their annual defense exercise.


Fatah-360 and Fajr-5 satellite-guided missiles tested for the first time

said Brigadier General Karim Chashak, spokesman for the Ektedar-1401 exercise.

At the same time, the general did not say what kind of navigation and global positioning system they use for such missiles. For obvious reasons, this is definitely not a GPS.

He added that Fath-360 was traveling at four times the speed of sound. Earlier, Iran introduced the Fath-360 missile at the Army Day parade. This was in April 2022.

Teachings of the Ground Forces of the Iranian Army "Ektedar-1401" were held on September 7-8 in an area in the province of Isfahan. The exercise involved infantry, armored, artillery, air force, unmanned, engineer, airborne and electronic warfare units supported by aviation Iranian Air Force.

The military exercises were aimed at increasing the level of combat readiness of the Iranian Ground Forces to confront new threats. The ground forces used various military equipment, including drones, Tanks T-72S, Chieftain, domestic Carrar, as well as Fateh anti-aircraft missile systems.

According to Yousef Korbani, commander of the Iranian army aviation, the helicopter protection system and the updated Shafak missile were successfully tested during the exercises. The upgraded Shafak missile, with a range three times longer than before, was launched from a Cobra helicopter and hit the target with high accuracy.

Helicopters equipped with night vision devices were used for the first time on the battlefield in a fully offensive manner during a night assault operation as part of an exercise. Speaking on the sidelines of Ektedar 7 on September 1401, Major General Gholam Ali Rashid, Commander of the IRGC Headquarters, stated:

The maneuvers of the Ground Forces are planned and carried out in accordance with possible future wars and other possible threats.

These words clearly mean a likely threat, a threat from Israel. It was this country that the generals most often mentioned during the exercises, hinting at the expected actions on its part, directed against the national interests and security of Iran.

    The Persians immediately put everything new into service, but in our country, unfortunately, they only take it to exhibitions, and the troops with a gulkin nose ...

      We had spectacles in the economy. When large projectors were opened with pomp and with a red ribbon cut, and then everything was quietly pulled away, and at best we got a frame without filling. This practice has gone to the Armed Forces. Everything is there and beautiful at the exercises, but as the war went on, we gather our guys for the needs of the whole world. With intelligence means, it turned out to be a failure. In the old fashioned way, at the level of the 17th century, all intelligence is based on rumors. The mess is just full

        Comments on V.O. generally turned into a bunch of domestic whiners, women whine worse, and provocateurs with used ones. Change power, change the leadership of M.O. during hostilities, clearly not patriots want. Salom stinks from every second kamenta.

          You can see how many of them have registered over the past six months, the comments are very well-built, but still smelly, some of them have three thousand (comments), it feels like they live in VO. And many more do not write the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as is customary among Russians, ZSU, i.e. slaughter.

    Iran will soon declare itself a nuclear power
    the question is how soon - in 5 years,
    and if we help China, then already this or next year
    new participants will be added under START-4:
    USA, Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, France, England, India
    countries with a ban on the deployment of nuclear weapons, export: Israel, Pakistan, Germany, Turkey, Japan

      I don’t know how they are friends with China, but then we can assume that these missiles flew by GLONASS.

      Fajr-5 is a rocket for MLRS 333 mm, with a range of 70 km
      caliber like our Tornado, and range like our Hurricane
      Iran also has an IRBM with a range of 2500 km Shahab-3, Sajil-2

    We saw how it turned out to deal a decisive blow to the infrastructure of Ukraine, how Zelensky dined yesterday, and today he had breakfast by candlelight. Do you want to see how arms supplies to Ukraine are stopped? Start sending weapons to Iran and North Korea, modern weapons, including nuclear ones. Get rid of the fifth column or lazy people who prevent you from making urgent and very beneficial decisions for Russia.

      It is not necessary to transfer military nuclear technology to Iran. You can, following the example of the United States, transfer your nuclear weapons to them. Naturally, under the supervision of our specialists, so as not to violate the formalities
