New ballistic missile test conducted in Iran

Yesterday at noon, the Iranian Defense Ministry conducted a test launch of a ballistic missile. The type of carrier is unknown, but the launch itself was recorded by Russian radars in Orsk and Armavir, reports Kommersant.

“The launch took place in 12: 33 Moscow time from the Semnan missile test site (Dasht-Kavir desert) and, according to preliminary data, was successful - the head of the missile fell in southern Iran,” a military source told the newspaper.

He noted that "now Russian experts are engaged in determining the type of rocket and its potential characteristics."

According to other sources of the newspaper, "now, perhaps, we are talking about preparing for the creation of an intercontinental carrier."

Each such test causes an acute reaction in the West. They call the actions of Iran "destabilizing and provocative."

In turn, Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said recently that Tehran will continue to implement missile projects. “To assert that the world is not focused on rockets can either be ignorant if it speaks out of ignorance, or a traitor if it speaks so consciously,” he said.

    Too many countries have become nuclear weapons, it is very dangerous.

        Iran does not have nuclear weapons, and any country has the right to defense.

          Don’t worry about Iran - if necessary, the DPRK can supply it with nuclear charges - there it is already mass production.

        The article implies an intercontinental medium, and if so, then obviously it will not be filled with confetti. From the statement of the Iranian leader it is clear what missiles he means.

        I support Iran does not have nuclear weapons, but to make rockets or not is purely their business.

        It is noted that the launch of the Ghadr-110 rocket range of 1200 - 3000 kilometers.
        no exact data, Americans claim: range of 2,000 to 3,000 km (1,200-1,900 miles).



        Here is what you think: in their right mind, someone will develop an SD BR with a launch range of 3000 km, which would deliver to 3000 km only 400-500 kg OF warhead? (with a KVO under 200m).

        Not. mean- medium range BR.
        The Iranian Space Agency does not yet have a launch vehicle for orbital launches.
        IRIS ("Shahab-3") with solid propellant rocket engine, "Kavoshgar-1" ("Researcher-1") with rocket engine, "Kavoshgar-2", etc. while suborbital flights


        (this is launch 2009)

        (and this is the launch of 2014)

          If this missile can carry 500 kilograms per 3000 kilometers, then a megaton warhead can be put on this missile.

          Thank you, very interesting information. yes
          Here's what you think: in your right mind, someone will develop an SD BR with a launch range of 3000km, which would deliver to 3000km all that 400-500kg OF warhead? (With CVO under 200m)

          Whether it will be or not is a separate topic, specifically in this article there is no mention of nuclear weapons! Maybe you saw, but, alas, I did not find.
          By the way, have you heard that in 2015 there was a "nuclear deal" with Iran? wink

            no, I’m on my own. It makes no sense to have a 3000km BR without the YaBCh
            Shl cost of "shot" Iskander-M, 118 million rubles. And this is 500 km, and we have.
            so consider it.

            I heard a lot of things.
            Israel here is not recognized in the presence of nuclear weapons, without any transactions.
            I India and Pakistan did not ask anyone, North Korea too.

              Not recognized, but the information has leaked! It will be the same with Iran if it takes possession of nuclear weapons. Murder will out!
              I India and Pakistan did not ask anyone, North Korea too.

              India and Pakistan created nuclear weapons when the "Navel of the Earth" was busy with the Cold War with the USSR, there was no time for them. Now the development is fraught with serious problems, ranging from sanctions to the threat of getting a salvo of "axes" at their nuclear facilities! Minus is not mine for you hi

                I’m talking about: maybe Iran does not have nuclear weapons, or maybe it’s on the threshold. RB is testing and producing is a fact

      That's right, a lot and dangerous - the USA, England, Israel, etc. -

      That's why countries like Russia or Iran are obliged to somehow protect themselves - holding back these aggressors with the possibility of retaliation for the attack

      And the aggressors love to attack - look at the news - because they regularly bomb someone

    If it’s with oil, it is impossible without ballistic missiles. And then they’ll carry democracy.

    Armavir - wherever it goes, but what is really spotted in the Orenburg region is impressive. Russian radars at altitude.

    “To claim that the world is not rocket-oriented can either be an ignoramus if he speaks out of ignorance, or a traitor if he speaks so consciously”

    Or "exceptional", who tries to usurp this right. The design and construction of missiles is a step forward for national science and the development of new technologies. Many countries are striving for this, but not everyone can do it.
