BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – The Iranian military has tested a new anti-tank missile that seems to resemble one of the Israeli projectiles that was shot down in Syria, the Russian publication Avia.Pro reported, citing new video footage of the Islamic Republic’s test.

According to the publication, the Russian electronic warfare system, Krasukha-4, brought down an Israeli drone during one of Tel Aviv’s attacks on Syria, which allowed Moscow to seize it and later study it.

“The next attack by the Israeli military on the positions of the Syrian and Iranian militaries in the SAR (Syrian Arab Republic) turned into unexpected troubles for Tel Aviv. One of the missiles launched by Israel turned out to be ‘shot down’ by the Russian electronic warfare system, presumably, we are talking about the Krasukha-4 system, which is the long-range electronic warfare system in Syria, after which the missile was successfully removed from the country by Iranian intelligence services, studied and completely copied,” they claimed. 

In the video shared on social media of the new Iranian missile test, Avia.Pro reports that “you can see the time of the test of the Iranian copy of the Israeli Spike missile. The accuracy with which the copied Israeli rocket hits the target is very impressive. At the same time, experts do not exclude the possibility that in the near future Iran may well try to use Israeli missiles against Tel Aviv itself.”

“If the characteristics of the Iranian missile correspond to those laid down in the Israeli, the Iranian military may well try to use the missile against the Israeli military in the event of repeated attacks ,” the Avia.Pro specialist notes.

Neither Iran nor Israel have commented on the appearance of a replicated Israeli missile in the Islamic Republic’s arsenal.

God bless you Iran, please use those missiles against the Jews, (karma).

God doesn’t exists, and Khamenei and his mafia are exactly the same critters as al-Julani or al-Baghdadi : true blue shitlamists.

You can add Al-Saud, Israel and Washington’s best friend in the Arab world and the world’s number one sponsor of salafist terrorism, to that list. Oh, and Bibi’s ultra-orthodox allies in Knesset, too.

But do very poor quality copies.
Moreover, they don’t have the gear to miniaturise processors as far as Israel can, so I have severe doubts about their claims.

Yeah yeah yeah blah blah blah as usual. Much earlier, lesser quality products already beat the shyte out of IDF armor and almost sank a cutting-edge INS corvette as early as 2006. Iranian Toophan, laser-guided version of the legacy TOW purchased by the slave despot, and Noor, Iranian derivation of the Chinese C-802. So poor that they replace physical ATGM wires with lasers, analogous radars with fully digitized AESA gear, and score dead-center tomahawk-style pinpoint hits on 80% of their targets with their SRBMs when they strike US bases in Iraq. Oh, and the usual reminder : Israel has no… Read more »

1 – Neither Iran or Israel are among the ICC manufacturing club, no more than they do turbofans. Israel enjoys free American plants built on its soil entirely at its disposal, courtesy of Intel and Raytheon, just as Iran has Chinese Industrial Groups leased for their use every once in a while via ToT and military-technical cooperation with front companies. Their expertise is at integrating and programming pre-produced chips into larger interfaces, NOT building complex CPU from scratch. Controllers at the very best. 2 – Iran already manufactures much more complex stuff than just an Israeli ATGM, such iteams have… Read more »

Just like they replicated the Kornet (aka “Dehlavieh”) and the TOW (aka “Toophan”), to which they added laser-guidance instead of the traditional wire from the original system purchased by the slave king wannabee that did wonders in crippling if not outright destroying Merkavas in 2006, and a few others. Iran’s DoD now boasts a mature, solid and well-financed military-industrial complex, and manufacturing ATGMs has been common business for them for more than a decade. Now of course that comes with a price in times of need like nowadays with the criminal and illegal unilateral sanctions regime, they could divert more… Read more »
