Iran’s new anti-ship missile could be the trump card to counter U.S.
Data Figure: Iran test-fired the “Persian Gulf”-type ballistic missile
recent missile tests demonstrate Iran’s military strength has become an important form of . According to the U.S. Associated Press reported Feb. 9 that Iran has once again announced a target can be hit-sea anti-ship ballistic missiles. Iran’s senior military said, called the “Persian Gulf” missile with high-speed flight capability, performance is very advanced.
for beating the U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups
According to reports, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps commander Ibrahim al-Jaafari announced Thursday that Iran developed a new generation of smart missiles – - “Persian Gulf” has been put into mass production, “The missile’s flight three times faster than the speed of sound, can be effective against naval targets.” Jaafari also further disclosed that the missile’s range over 300 km, difficult track, with high firing accuracy.
video broadcast media in Iran, the “Persian Gulf” missile was launched from the desert and eventually hit a target ship at sea on. However, Iran did not disclose more technical details of this missile. The display of Iran’s advanced missiles, Western experts questioned as usual. London “The Arab and Iranian Studies Center” 阿里诺里扎德 said, “people from time to time to hear the news of Iranian missile tests, after we had found that Iran is using image processing software to generate exactly the same out of seven missiles.”
probably already guessed the West questioned the authenticity of Iran’s advanced missiles, the Iranian media, broadcast video is relatively clear and coherent. According to the United States, “Satellite News Daily” analysis, showing the Iranian medium-range missile with inertial guidance capabilities, in the last paragraph of the first guide to the use of optical guidance, equipment, and Iran had the “Fatah” -110 similar type of missile guidance mode. And Western analysts have speculated, “Fatah” -110 missile reference to China’s “wind”-11A missile design.
U.S. media also believe that, given Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps commander Ibrahim al-Jaafari also said Iran has equipped with a detection range of 1100 km of the radar, this new radar is likely to have a “Persian Gulf” target missile guidance ability. Once the U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups are in the Arabian Sea, with far higher accuracy and combat against the distance of Iranian missiles can be an effective deterrent. If Iran really mastered the anti-ship ballistic missile technology, the Navy really needs to take seriously.
finally find out the “trump card”
to the United States and Israel in chants of “military action against Iran,” the slogan scruples, and in order to effectively enhance their own independent defense capability, the Iranian-made weapons has introduced in recent years: from the torpedo boats, missile boats, mini-submarines, armed helicopters, artillery, and ballistic missile destroyers to the “new product” after another, but most of them difficult to hurt the U.S. army or the “bones.” Especially the United States and Israel is to build multi-missile defense network, the most likely to rely heavily on Iran’s missile combat power is weakened, so find out the point of force has become Iran’s strengthening of the military construction and weapons development priority problems.
“Persian Gulf” anti-ship missiles that Iran seems to find the exposure counter to the United States effectively “trump card.” Have the ability to end the Iranian anti-ship guided missile in the interior of the ships pose a threat to the Persian Gulf. More importantly, Iran also to validate its anti-missile interception capability, as with the last paragraph is the most difficult maneuver capability to intercept missiles. In addition, Iran’s Press TV 12, also revealed that the Iranian Navy has successfully test-fired a high-precision laser-guided missile with a range of 45-300 km. If the range of Iranian ballistic missiles, precision and continuous improvement, will become the new U.S. military vessels trouble. This is probably always will be “Chinese anti-ship missile threat,” talks about the U.S. military anticipated. (Source: International Online – “News of the World”)
