BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – Iran on Friday successfully tested a new home-made missile defense system.

Dubbed the Khordad-15, the system, which was first introduced in June this year, was successfully tested on Friday during a military exercise in the Samnan province, the Mehr news agency reported.

The new missile defense system  is able to detect various targets, including military aircraft and drones.

This new missile system can track enemy aircraft up to 150 km away and they can follow them for up to 120 km.

The system is also capable of detecting blurred targets within an 85 km radius and hitting within a range of 45 km. In addition, it can intercept six objects simultaneously.

The defense system’s movements allow military personnel to prepare air defenses to hit targets in less than 5 minutes.

Wonderful : AGM-88E HARM, which is dedicated in demolition of air defenses ranges 150km, no need for the newest “ER” (extended range) version which is more expensive, Ham-Delilah! +++ “allow military personnel to prepare air defenses to hit targets in less than 5 minutes.” => AGM-88 flies at Mach-4 = 1360m/s. Flight time from 150km to target : 110.3s Flight time for a jet fighter at Mach 1.8 : 240.1s = 4 min Time is the enemy. +++ “blurred targets within an 85 km radius and hitting within a range of 45 km” => Means using old school jamming… Question… Read more »

And as Iran’s air defense net grow thicker by the year, the caveman goes on talking to himself about a system he doesn’t know jack about,and that leaves the Pentagon thinking to this day about how they could so pathetically loose a 230 Million dollar drone to a sister system and dared nothing to avenge it, and still reeling from a stealth RQ-170 that was welcomed inact on an Iranian runway through electronic hijacking wondefully accompliqhed by Iranian ECM and SIGINT teams as early as 2011 ?. Facts 1 – 0 Caveman. I wish Iran many enemies like the hairy… Read more »

Opium smoking hairy primate, the worst enemy of the Iranian people :comment image
What do you say about gasoline rationing in Iran with tripled prices and the hundreds protesters murdered by the Basij Gestapo? Sanction rocks… Go on like this and CIA will just have to distribute Uzi-Pro and MP7 to the population… Amazon may even do the deliveries 🙂

Changes nothing : Khordad-15 needs 5 minutes to intercept an aircraft not using jammers which will just have to run towards the battery and will bomb it in 4 minutes 🙂 If the aircraft uses jamming, it’s reduced to 85km = 139s at Mach 1.8… But… GBU-39 SDB ranges 110km+, so why giving a fuss? Everybody seems to shït in the pants What you guys in the Iranian regime’s hasbara are really impressive in, is your Monty Python’s Black Knight’s rhetoric! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmInkxbvlCs Oh, BTW, a MQ-4C/RQ-4 doesn’t costs $230M, idiot! The cost per unit is about $120M, but this includes… Read more »
