Anti-ship ballistic missile Khalij Fars (Iran)

29
Chinese DF-21D is considered to be the first ballistic anti-ship missile (PKR) adopted for service. it weapon, despite the lack of data on it, it still attracts the attention of specialists and the general public, and is also the subject of many discussions and disputes. Also a few years ago it became known about the existence of a new system of this class, created by specialists of the Iranian defense industry. According to some sources, to date, Iran has not only completed the design work, but also has adopted a new ballistic anti-ship missile system, called the Khalij Fars ("Persian Gulf").


In recent decades, Iranian specialists have been actively engaged in the development of rocket weapons of various classes. At the same time, the highest priority is given to ballistic missiles capable of delivering conventional and, in the long run, special warheads to the target. On the basis of the ground-to-ground ballistic missile developments, at some point it was decided to create a new ammunition designed to attack enemy surface ships. The finished product of this type, which became the result of subsequent work, is now known as Khalij Fars.

According to various foreign media reports, the first launches of the Persian Gulf rocket took place back in 2008 during the exercises of the Iranian naval forces. Thus, the development of the rocket began roughly in the first half of the last decade. In February, 2011, the test launch of the rocket, which was first officially announced. Then the representatives of the armed forces of Iran did not disclose the details of the new project, however, they spoke about some of its features. In particular, the main parameters of the rocket and its underlying ideas were announced. Later, according to known data, several more test launches were carried out. In addition, new missiles were repeatedly used during the exercises of the armed forces.

In 2011, the official representatives of Tehran revealed some features of the Khalij Fars project. It was argued that this ballistic CRP is a further development of the existing Fateh-110 product. This single-stage tactical missile was developed in the nineties and entered service with the 2002. According to some reports, when creating a new rocket, Iranian specialists collaborated with Chinese colleagues. As far as is known, the operation of the Fateh-110 rocket continues to this day. This weapon is in service with Iran, North Korea and Syria. The task of such systems, performed on mobile chassis, is to strike at enemy targets with previously known coordinates.

Apparently, an analysis of the capabilities of the existing rocket technology has shown that the Fateh-110 rocket is the most convenient and advantageous base for a promising means of dealing with enemy ships. This led to the use of a large number of existing units and assemblies, with the help of which a high degree of unification of the new and old missiles was achieved. At the same time, for the new project, several systems had to be developed that were not available on the prototype rocket. The available data suggest that the design work on the Khalij Fars product continued at least until the middle of the two thousandth.

Being a further development of the existing product, the Persian Gulf rocket retains its main features and structural elements. Ballistic CRP has a cylindrical body of large elongation with a conical head fairing. Unlike the base rocket, the new Khalij Fars is not equipped with a pointed fairing. At the head of the case there is a small transparent part of a hemispherical shape used by the optical system of the homing head. Immediately behind the fairing are placed triangular steering wheels of the X-shaped design. In the rear part of the body two sets of planes of similar structure are mounted: these are triangular and trapezoidal stabilizers.

The total length of the anti-ship missile is 8,86 m, the case diameter is 0,6 m. The rocket is built in a one-step scheme and does not have the ability to divide into blocks, including dropping the warhead. This allowed us to simplify the design, although it imposed certain restrictions on the characteristics. From the point of view of the main flight parameters, Khalij Fars is not very different from the base Fateh-110.

Khalij Fars single-stage rocket retains the powerplant of the base product. It is equipped with a solid-fuel engine that provides acceleration to the required speed and output to the desired path. Engine power and fuel is enough for a flight over a range of 300 km. By correcting the trajectory in the initial part of the flight, the rocket is capable of changing the firing range within fairly wide limits.

The Fateh-110 ballistic ground-to-ground missile is equipped with an inertial guidance system, ensuring the destruction of fixed targets with previously known coordinates. For anti-ship weapons required a new guidance system that can independently perform the detection of mobile surface objects. As follows from the available data, the Khalij Fars rocket received a combined guidance system based on inertial navigation equipment and a thermal homing head. Thus, in the initial part of the trajectory, before going into an uncontrolled flight, the inertial system should be controlled, and the infrared homing system turns on after reaching the target area when the rocket falls down. Flight control on the final leg should be carried out using the available rudders.

Nevertheless, some sources claim that the rocket received not a thermal, but a television homing head with the ability to transmit a video signal to the console of the missile complex operator. Both versions may find evidence of one kind or another. In particular, the characteristic appearance of the target ships used during the tests and exercises, as well as some shots from the video published by the Iranian military, can speak in favor of the version about the television seeker.

Thus, the Iranian engineers were able to successfully solve one of the most difficult tasks in the development of ballistic missiles - the search for a mobile surface target, followed by pointing at it. Targeting for the complex is proposed to carry out using radar and other means of detection. According to their data, the missile system must calculate the flight program for the active part of the flight, with the help of which the missile, after moving to the downward part of the trajectory, should go to the target area. Detection and tracking of the target with the subsequent guidance of the rocket is proposed to carry out an infrared or television GOS.

According to statements by Iranian officials, during the first tests held in 2011, the Khalij Fars homing head hit a moving surface target with a deviation of 30 m. After that, the customer, in the person of the armed forces command, was tasked to double the accuracy of shooting. After finishing the product and improving the guidance system, the next tests ended with the defeat of the target with a deviation of 8,5 from the aiming point. As a result of the necessary improvements, the rocket was able to effectively attack enemy ships. It is noteworthy that only two months passed between two test runs with radically different accuracy indicators.

To destroy the target, the Persian Gulf rocket is equipped with a high-explosive warhead weighing 650 kg. When falling on a target at high speed, such a warhead may work as penetrating, exploding after breaking through the deck or other elements of the ship. When undermining the inside of the target ship, the disabling of various systems or its flooding is guaranteed, depending on various factors. Ships of relatively small displacement with defeat 650-kg warhead guaranteed to be destroyed, larger targets should receive serious damage, making it impossible to continue full combat work.

To launch Khalij Fars missiles, it is proposed to use a mobile launcher based on a semi-trailer. An appropriate type of tractor should tow the platform with a special turntable that carries the guide for the rocket. As can be seen on the published videos, before launching, a semi-trailer with a rocket must be mounted on supports, and the tractor is taken to a safe place. Before launching the rocket rises to the desired angle of elevation, after which the engine is turned on and it comes off the guide. For transportation of missiles and reloading on launchers, a towed semi-trailer with the necessary attachments is used. Like many other Iranian-developed missiles, the Persian Gulf is transported and launched without the use of transport-launch containers. To protect the products used only fabric covers, etc. equipment.

According to some reports, the Khalij Fars missile tests began at the end of the last decade. However, accurate data on this score is missing. The first test launch of the new RCC was announced only in February 2011 of the year. An experienced rocket was launched from one of the coastal test sites in Iranian territory. As a learning target, a decommissioned vessel, tanker, or dry cargo ship was used. To assess the accuracy of the hit (or to simplify the work of the homing head) special shields were installed on the deck of the target ship. As representatives of the Iranian armed forces reported, during the first launch, the prototype of the rocket showed accuracy at the 30 m level. After the first launch, the work on the rocket continued. Now their goal was to improve onboard systems.

After about six months, i.e. In the summer of 2011, another launch took place. By this time, the authors of the project received an order to double the accuracy. The task was successfully solved: instead of the required 10-15 meters of deviation from the aiming point, the experienced Khalij Fars rocket showed accuracy at the level of 8,5 m. There is also information about another test launch in the middle of 2012. Probably, there were other test launches, but information about them was never able to penetrate the media.

Already in 2011, it was claimed that the Persian Gulf ballistic missile would be in mass production in the near future. Apparently, these plans were soon realized, with the result that the troops began to receive and develop new weapons. Already in 2012, the new rocket was first shown to the public. In September, a military parade was held, during which various weapons and military equipment were shown, including tractors with transport trucks and Khalij Fars missiles.

Available information suggests that the Khalij Fars missiles have already been adopted by Iran and have become the standard weapons of some units responsible for the defense of the coast. Thus, the Iranian armed forces already have quite interesting and promising weapons. Known data on new type missiles may reveal some features of their potential in terms of combat use.

Probably, the new anti-ship missile is not just called the "Persian Gulf". With a firing range of up to 300 km, this product launched from a particular section of the Iranian coast can hit targets in almost the entire area of ​​the Persian Gulf, including the remote shores of the Arabian Peninsula. The zone of responsibility of such missiles may also include the Gulf of Oman (in full) and a large area in the north of the Arabian Sea. Thus, in theory, the Khalij Fars missiles are able to protect Iran from sea threats from any dangerous directions: all the nearby seas and bays, at least partially, are in the zone of action of such missiles.

The potential of the Khalij Fars rocket in a real battle against the conditional enemy ships can be a subject of controversy. On the one hand, such weapons really represent a great danger from ships, but on the other hand, developed countries already have in service anti-aircraft systems capable of fighting with ballistic missiles of this class. Thus, the actual result of the use of the Persian Gulf missiles in the course of an armed conflict may differ significantly from the expected one. It is clear that it will depend on the mass of various factors, and for this reason the correct prediction of the results of the application is very difficult, if at all possible, to do.

Nevertheless, even with a completely unclear potential of a new type of rocket, it is fully capable of solving the tasks of deterring a potential enemy. Iran has strained relations with several neighboring Middle Eastern states, and this tension may sooner or later lead to armed conflict. However, in the event of an attack on Iran, the enemy country risks getting hit by naval ships closer than 300 km from the Iranian coast. The map of the region clearly shows that if Iran has similar missiles, the enemy’s naval forces either completely withdrawn from the war or lose the ability to work and attack the Iranian coast.

Significant risk of losing ships can be a good deterrent to warning the attack of unfriendly states. As for the ambiguity and the controversial potential of Khalij Fars missiles, it can only be determined in the course of a real war. But such methods of identifying enemy capabilities are simply unacceptable and are unlikely to be used by the likely adversary. Thus, military analysts of the Middle Eastern states can only study the issue and build predictions of different plausibility.

It should be recalled that currently only two anti-ship ballistic missiles are in service in the world. These are Chinese DF-21D and Iranian Khalij Fars. These two products have a lot of differences, both in the basic characteristics and in the principles of work. However, they are designed to solve the same problem. Their goal is to deter naval forces of a potential enemy or, in the event of a conflict, attack enemy ship formations with the destruction of ships at long range from the coast.

Ballistic anti-ship missiles are currently an uncharacteristic way of dealing with enemy ships. Nevertheless, judging by the appearance of new projects in recent years, such weapons are of particular interest and are ordered by the armed forces of individual countries. Other states, however, prefer to rely on the more familiar "traditional" cruise missiles. Perhaps in the future, the list of ballistic missiles adopted for service will be supplemented with new products, but at the moment this class of missile systems is represented by only two samples. Reliable information on the creation of new weapons of this class is not yet available.

    It is equipped solid fuel an engine that provides acceleration to the required speed and output to the desired path. Engine power and fuel reserve are enough for flying on range to 300 km.





    I have great doubts that Iran has managed to create effective solid fuel formulations to achieve such a range. No. With dimensions comparable to the Luna-M missile, it was hardly possible to achieve a range of more than 100 km. And the use of a radio command television guidance system at the indicated range also seems extremely doubtful.

      RC "Oka" and "Iskander-E" have a range of up to 300 km. Why do you think that Iran was unable to buy these products from third countries?


      Optical correlation seeker 9E436 for the Iskander warhead - developed by TsNIIAG (Moscow), the missile is guided by the reference target image, similar to the seeker of the 8K14-1F missile. GOS was first presented at the Eurosatory-2004 exhibition.
      GOS weight - 20 kg

      In comparison with the Iranian product, does it not remind anything?

      It should be recalled that at present only two anti-ship ballistic missiles are in service in the world. These are Chinese DF-21D and Iranian Khalij Fars.


      There is such data:
      Iskander-MKR complex - during the IMDS-2005 exhibition it was announced that a sea-based missile would be created on the basis of the Iskander OTR.

      Considering that for Iskander there is (all data from http://militaryrussia.ru) -
      - radar correlation seeker - developed by TsNIIAG (Moscow) in the late 1980s on the Volga theme, the rocket is guided by comparing the digital terrain map in the target area and the data from the radar seeker;
      - optical correlation GOS 9E436 - developed TsNIIAG (Moscow), the missile is guided by the reference image of the target,

      it is entirely conceivable that this complex can also fire at ships.

        I don’t know what you are doing in your main activity, but it’s very difficult to explain some things to a layman. request For all its seemingly simplicity, the creation of a solid-fuel guided missile with a specified range in acceptable dimensions is a very difficult task. It is impossible to solve which without the presence of a fundamental scientific base in the country. No.

        Quote: Rus2012
        Considering that for Iskander there is

        No No. Please do not confuse PKR and OTR - these are fundamentally different types of weapons designed to solve completely different tasks.

        Not a valid example. No.
        GOS data is designed to defeat motionless ground targets... For that matter, SAMs are more suitable for fighting surface targets than OTR. How are you going to get a reference image of an aircraft carrier moving in a warrant? An active radar "head" is rather needed here.

          And yet - the Iskander RC is not just an OTR, but an element of the RUK - the Reconnaissance and Strike Complex. Initially, his ancestors (OKA, Volga) had the main task - "the demolition of Pershing-2 before takeoff." Hoping clear?

                    There is nothing like the Chinese. No. DF-21D is much larger, OTR DF-11 / 11A is suitable for range characteristics. But obviously in the near future they will not be able to create a normal GOS in Iran.

                        In general, if the US starts preparing an attack on Iran, most likely neither China nor the Russian Federation will rely on Iranian weapons, even if they were made using Russian and Chinese technologies. Most likely, Iran will immediately receive Chinese and Russian ready-made missiles.

        ... and by tradition, an evening of creative intelligentsia begins on my blog. A quiet and shy intellectual wakes up in a good mood and rather climbs to open the news, I foresee the next disgrace of Raska with the launch of a rocket from the Vostochny cosmodrome. However, the damned Putin outplayed here, having arranged the next multi-way. The mood with a quick jack falls to zero, and the non-Poltava sadly weaves into a cozy dissident kitchen to prepare for the meeting of faithful companions. Around the volume of Osip Mandelstam, as well as guitars for singing the compositions of Bulat Okudzhava and Orest Lyuty, there are elite Polish moonshine, Scotch whiskey with ice, Lviv vodka, wild-fashioned Crimean wines and demidrol beer. On the couch are civil activists with backgammon, waiting for the taschemte of the beginning of a child reveling, for example. Rep is feces.

        The launch of the new cosmodrome was a heavy blow to the conscientious intelligentsia and the Euros, accustomed to admire the achievements of Ilon Mask and NASA. In the impoverished corrupt Russia, plundered by officials from the party of crooks and thieves, money is spent unclear on what. We can say they are being thrown out into space, instead of paying pensions, building hospitals and kindergartens, or transferring to Navalny to rent an office in the center of Moscow (19 million a year) and his new investigations into corruption cases. Therefore, on Twitter today there is a real storm of liberal intelligentsia, in terms of the degree of handshake similar to the energy release recorded by the handshake meters of the Matryoshka tavern in the 2012 year, right after the lawyer Mark Feigin announced the two-year sentence for the vaginal punk band Pussy Riot. The resentment of Ukrainian microbloggers is also understandable. After all, the transition of Yuzhmash to production instead of space technology for sewing embroidered shirts also meant the end of all the successes of Mordor in space. Because Ukrainian engineers and designers now instead of supporting Russian missiles sing the anthem of Ukraine and solder stoves for the heroes of the ATO. And here, like a devil from a snuff-box, oaths are announced with a new cosmodrome. Suddenly, she became conscientiously and disgustingly at heart. How doused from the shower. Reached damn Putin.

        Jackets, colorado and slaves of Putin rejoice. The creative class and opposition microbloggers are indignant. Stop poisoning the intelligentsia! Enough tolerating this. Do not forget, do not forgive. And I urge all honest and decent people, gays, democratic journalists and euro-ukras to join hands so as not to disappear one by one, and declare a complete and unconditional ganba to the Russian cosmonautics. Only Elon Musk, only Bruce Willis. Therefore, the most relevant composition for this creative evening will be the VIA Stigmata track, which describes all the suffering and horror of the insignificant intellectual that he experiences when he mentions Russia's achievements in space. After all, one must not live by lies. For your and our freedom. So win!

            This means that I allowed myself to doubt the existence of the Iskander anti-ship version of the OTRK and was enlisted in the Westophiles. lol Well, at least not in bestiality. wassat

              theoretically, the iskander can become RCC, but the question arises - WHY? Of course, you can hammer in screws with a microscope, but this is a current for spores or drunk. although perhaps we just don’t know something.

              nobody disputes your right to doubt. For God's sake...
              But when you do this without proof and aplomb, and in return give arguments and evidence, I'm sorry!
              As for the ballistic complex for the Navy, this is what is publicly available (other "PenZioneers" shared) -
              29.07.2014. US accuses Russia of violating the agreement on medium and short-range missiles RIA Novosti
              US accuses Russia of violating treaty on medium and short-range missiles
              A senior US administration official stated that the White House has information that Russia has tested ship ballistic missiles. He stated that the situation was “very serious”, refusing to provide any additional details of what had happened. The official, quoted by the BBC, said that administration officials intend to raise this issue with the Russian side.

              And our experts answer approximately the following and give arguments: "... we do not violate any agreement, this complex belongs to the short-range missile system (up to 500 km) ... it is not ground-based ... and does not belong to the" land- Earth"...

              And the advantages of ballistic systems in the BPCR version are well known -
              - destruction rate
              - the difficulty of interception, and in the case of a "multiplicity of routes", there is jargon among the missilemen "an imaginary trajectory" :) like Iskander, this task becomes really impossible.

              You can blame - where is the mention of "Iskander" here.
              In response there will be arguments like -
              1. From what the hell sea and land RK should match up to the letter / number of the index. They generally have different designation systems, such as land GRAU and URAV Navy, for example "Fort" and "Favorite" of a single analogue of the C300 ...
              2. for a journalist who has been working on the military topic for many years, it's time to learn to "read inter-lines" and draw conclusions from disparate facts of a single mosaic ...
              Moreover, to write only what the internal censorship allows, so as not to harm the country. Without publishing even correct guesses that can lead the enemy on the trail ... In an extreme case, referring only to already published things ... True "misinformation" is welcomed, but it still needs to be worked out. This is, of course, if the journalist cares for the Fatherland ...

      I have great doubts that Iran has managed to create effective solid fuel formulations to achieve such a range. With dimensions comparable to the Luna-M missile, it was hardly possible to achieve a range of more than 100 km.

      The fact remains



      Fateh-110 Third Generation = 300 km
      Fateh-110-D1 (Fourth Generation) = 300 km
      Khalij Fars = 300 km
      Fateh-313 = 500km


      You just didn’t notice that they sloping start

      Iran has a weak chemical industry, and there is everything



      At present, Iran produces 113 nanoproducts; more than 150 companies operate

      at present, Iran produces more than 3% of the total world volume of scientific publications in nanoscale areas, and in 2011, according to the head of a special Iranian organization for the development of nanotechnologies called "Iranian Nanotechnology Initiative" Said Sarkar, Iran is ranked 1st among Islamic countries and 12th place in the world in the development of nanotechnology.

    The platform on the ship painted white is visible for the contrast of the target. There will be no such indulgence on enemy warships and the GOS may not recognize the target.

    An interesting and rather exotic weapon. All the same, these missiles will not stop the missiles, but will only complicate the execution of the enemy’s combat mission, forcing him to deploy a cumbersome air defense system. Winged anti-ship missiles are anyway better, but on bezrybe and cancer is a fish.

    and the usual anti-ship missiles of aviation "carry" is not a danger for a tanker?

    the author wrote that only two countries have anti-ship ballistic missiles ... but what about the anti-submarine ballistic caliber that stands on submarines?

      Of course it will, only the aircraft have warheads not so heavy. and need a plane. why did I focus on tankers: the goal is already very big - even if the guidance system is not perfect (only a personal opinion), it will be difficult to miss on the tanker. Well, plus such a region - oil, tankers.

      the ballistic trajectory - but the target is hit by a detachable torpedo, so this is not a ballista in its usual, classic design. and you yourself write that it is anti-submarine, and not anti-ship. although the devil knows, can it be used against ships or not.
