The United States and Israel will unite to create a missile defense systemA message appeared on the mignews website, which describes Israel’s plans to conduct exercises to improve missile defense next spring. These exercises will be the largest for the whole history countries and are a kind of response to Iran’s actions to produce nuclear weapons.

The exercises involve close cooperation with the US military. As part of the planned maneuvers, several units with a total of several thousand people will be located in Israel. From the American side, Lieutenant-General Frank Gorentz, commander of the Third United States Air Force, is in charge of drawing up plans for the exercises. He visited Israel last week.

The main purpose of these exercises is to create joint working groups that can solve various tasks in the event of a large-scale conflict in the Middle East. The actions for this are planned to be fairly large-scale and include the deployment of American command posts on the territory of Israel, it is also planned to place the IDF command posts in Germany, at the headquarters of the European command.

In addition, maneuvers are planned to simulate the interception of missile volleys that can be sent to Israel. To the already existing Israeli missile defense systems: “Patriot”, “Iron Dome” and “Hets” - the American THAAD missile system and several ship-based Aegis ballistic missiles will be delivered for collaboration.

As part of his visit, Frank Gorentz visited the Iron Dome battery, located in the south of the country, as well as one of Israel’s testing laboratories in Holon, in which the Air Force simulates training situations for intercepting missiles and aircraft of a potential enemy. In addition, Gorenz held talks with the commander of one of the divisions of the Israel Air Defense - Brigadier General Doron Gavishch.

The plans of the Israeli military command include the deployment in the coming months of a fourth battery, the Iron Dome, which may be located in Haifa to protect oil refineries. At 2012, the production of three more “Iron Dome” complexes is planned, the budget for this has already been allocated by the Israeli Ministry of Defense.

Also, the Israeli Air Force Command is moving ahead with plans that involve the deployment of the “Prash David” system, designed to intercept medium-range missiles and cruise missiles. The first tests in conditions simulating combat are scheduled for the middle of the 2012 year.

    So, until the spring of 2012, Iran will not be attacked, the Iranians urgently need to drive Iskander

    The military exercises of the Iranian naval forces in the Strait of Hormuz, the most important sea route for exporting oil and gas from the Persian Gulf, will begin on December 24 and will last ten days, Reuters reported on Thursday with reference to the head of the Iranian Navy, Admiral Habibolah Sayari.

    "The purpose of the maneuvers is to demonstrate the defensive and deterrent power of the Iranian armed forces. Thus, we send a signal of peace and friendship in the Strait of Hormuz, the Gulf of Oman and the neutral waters of the Indian Ocean," Iranian state television quoted Sayyari as saying, RIA Novosti writes.

    According to the commander of the Iranian Navy, exercises called Velayat-90 will be held in the eastern part of the Strait of Hormuz and stretch to the Gulf of Aden, covering an area of ​​2 km. According to the admiral, for the first time, Iran’s naval exercises will be held on such a vast territory.

    During the maneuvers, the launch of the latest missile systems and torpedoes to destroy surface and underwater targets will be carried out and new tactical techniques for naval combat will be worked out, reports PRESS TV.

    Not only missile ships and destroyers, but also logistics ships will take part in the exercises. The latest unmanned aerial vehicles and coastal defense missiles will be tested.

    Last week, a member of the Iranian parliamentary commission on national security issues, Parviz Sarvari, said that during the exercise, the actions of the Navy to close the Strait of Hormuz will be worked out. This announcement triggered an increase in oil prices in world markets.

    However, then the spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Ramin Mehmanparast, denied the deputy’s words, saying that Tehran did not intend to close the Strait of Hormuz during the exercises.

    The Strait of Hormuz is the main sea route for exporting gas and oil from the Gulf countries. It connects the Gulf of Oman with the Persian Gulf. The north coast is controlled by the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the south by the UAE and Oman, allies of the United States.

      They want to eliminate risks. This is where the weak point of the Amers and Israelis is. A couple of Iskanders will blow your electronic brains out when calculating the trajectory ...

      Iskander-M is not a panacea. Will they manage to make Iskader-K by 2012? (winged) that one flies along low trajectories and is thus less vulnerable to the enemy.

      Such conflicts are planned in advance. Overnight no one attacks from the bay. Evaluating the enemy's capabilities, own capabilities, preparing public opinion, "rattling" with the allies about how we will divide and sponsoring the fifth column require expenditures and time and money. The main thing is not to oversleep the flash when all this can be done.
