Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps unveils Fath-2 hypersonic missile

Iran presented the Fath-2 hypersonic missile, allegedly adopted by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The Iranian press reports this.

The new missile was presented on Sunday, November 19, at the display of the IRGC Aerospace Forces. It was shown to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who visited the exhibition. No details are provided about the new development, except that this missile allegedly has gliding capabilities.



It is noted that this is not the first presentation of hypersonic missiles by Iran; in June of this year, again at the exhibition of the achievements of the IRGC, Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi showed the Fath hypersonic missile, which is capable of striking at a range of up to 1,5 thousand kilometers, while developing speed over Mach 12. At least this is what the Iranian military said.


It is emphasized that this missile should become a “punishing sword” with which Iran will strike the enemy, read Israel. The name of the rocket was given personally by Ayatollah Khamenei, after familiarizing himself with the development. “Al-Fattah” is one of the names of Allah, meaning, among other things, “the giver of victory.”

Meanwhile, military experts from various countries doubt that Iran could develop a hypersonic unit with a ramjet engine, saying that it could just be a prototype. At the same time, the majority has no doubt that Iran has a good missile school, but it is too early for Tehran to aim at a hypersonic unit. On the other hand, no one will deny the fact of cooperation between Iran and the DPRK, and Pyongyang also announced the development of a hypersonic missile.

        I spoke with one teacher of a tricky university from St. Petersburg. He stated that Iranian students are very diligent, with great prospects. Something like this.. And yes, this was more than ten years ago

        Moreover, I can say with confidence that it is no worse than the Su-75 that Rostec demonstrated during the International Aviation and Space Salon 2021 (MAKS-2021)

          The Zircon has a declared and confirmed range of “over 1000 km.” And on the state In tests, the rocket flew for such a distance (over 1000 km).
          But this is a ship version of the Zircon, which has dimensional limitations of the accelerating booster. But the airborne version of the Zircon has a range of 1500 km+. So, it is enough to give our Zircon a larger/more powerful and overall acceleration stage, and it will fly like its air-launched version.
          So Iran seems to have developed such a missile defense system. So far, according to their statements, but it is quite possible that there will be a demonstration soon. Not necessarily combat use, but demonstration/demonstration launches to demonstrate capabilities.

        I hope that our authorities are not so stupid as to share hypersonic technologies with anyone. After all, in order to create competitors for yourself in such an area, you need to be just an idiot and not see beyond your nose.
        So I think this is just a New Year’s craft - besides, the rocket is very similar to the American hypersonic missile that never flew.
        What the Chinese, Koreans and Persians could really do was a ballistic missile, which they called hypersonic. However, such missiles were almost always hypersonic... The Chinese don’t seem to hide the fact that they have one, essentially an analogue of Iskander

      Many people confuse and do not know the concepts of hypersonic missile and HYPERSONIC missile. These are two big differences. In general, in fact, the Germans already launched hypersonic missiles during World War II. Do you understand the point now? If a launched missile flies along a ballistic trajectory with hyperspeed, that is, a speed greater than Mach 2, this does not mean that it is hypersonic. It only flies part of its flight along a flat, permanent trajectory above 5 m and that’s all...and this is not a hypersonic missile. Today, the term hypersonic missile means a missile that not only flies at hyperspeed, but also, most importantly, MANEUVERING at such a speed, which is why the amers cannot blind it. And in this case, the Iranians created only a missile that simply reaches hyperspeed but does not maneuver on it.

          Overload when maneuvering 1 degree per second at a speed of 3600m/s (12M) is approximately 6.4g
          It seems to have worked out - a full turn in 3 minutes and the overload is not prohibitive?

        Yes, yes, I'm sure you're right. This is just PR against the backdrop of events in Palestine, but in fact they have a ballistic missile that can develop Mach 12 there at some point, but is not much different from the conventional V-2.

        Nothing is written there about missiles, only about hypersonic speed:
        What does hypersonic speed mean?
        Hypersonic speed (HS) in aerodynamics is a speed that is significantly higher than the speed of sound in the atmosphere.
        Since the 1970s, the concept has generally been referred to to supersonic speeds with Mach numbers (Mach) above 5.

      Accelerate the blank to 12M task number one
      So that the blank plops down exactly in the given square - task number two
      Attacking moving targets - task number three
      Maneuvering during flight, bypassing air defense zones, avoiding anti-missile missiles - task number 4,5

      If our hypersound (I hope so) is capable of solving all five problems, then the Iranian one, with all due respect..... what

        This is the easiest in my opinion.
        In the process of launching into orbit, any space rocket must necessarily reach the 1st cosmic speed.
        =7,91 km/s (this is approximately 26M)
        So any space power already has the ability to create a rocket with such speed.
