The coverage area of ​​Iranian tactical missiles is shown if they appear in Russia

Military experts in Iran suggest that cooperation with Russia in the military sphere may not only be in the supply of unmanned aerial vehicles. Despite pressure from the West, the Iranian industry produces short and medium-range missiles. The hypothetical supply of these weapons will give Iran the opportunity to test its military products in real combat conditions, and the Russian army - additional advantages in the confrontation with Ukraine. The Iranian Military Studies and Analysis Institute has published a map of missile coverage if they are deployed near the borders of a special military operation.

The Persian military has Fateh-110, Zolfagar and Dezful missiles in its arsenal. The Fateh-110 short-range missile was already used by Iran in January 2020 when attacking American bases in Iraq after the elimination of IRGC commander Qasem Soleimani. This rocket weighing 3,3 tons can deliver up to 448 kg of explosives at a distance of up to 300 km. The deployment of such OTR (operational-tactical missile) in the Crimea or near Belgorod will make it possible to cover almost the entire territory of the new regions of Russia, as well as target enemy military air bases in Mirgorod and Zaporozhye.

Zolfagar is the logical development of the Fateh project. This single-stage solid-propellant ballistic missile with a length of 10,3 meters and a gross weight of 4570 kg hits targets within a radius of 700 km. At the same time, it carries a warhead weighing 579 kg. For the first time, Iran used this development on June 18, 2017 to strike at the ISIS * group in Syria. The appearance of "Zolfagars" at the Russian bases bordering Ukraine will make it possible to keep at gunpoint most of the enemy's territory, including Kyiv.

The capabilities of the largest Iranian OTP Dezful are still kept secret. In real conditions, these missiles have not yet been used anywhere. According to Iranian military experts, the range of Dezful is up to 1000 km, which allows it to be classified as a medium-range ballistic missile. The mass of the transported charge is estimated at 650 kg. The supply of such missiles will cover the entire territory of Ukraine, Moldova and the eastern part of Poland.

    What is the point of buying Iranian ballistic missiles when our warehouses are full of decommissioned Tochek-Us?

      Interestingly, it would not be easier to restore the production of R-12 and R-14 missiles?!

        Are you laughing? Or are you kidding me? These are non-ampulized rockets with liquid engines and a preparation time for launch in the region of THREE hours and a crew of one hundred people. Maybe we will restore the production of stone axes?

      There are only 120 km. The shelf life of missiles is too short. The production lines are probably busy. Although it would be possible to select and use something than to keep it in storage until disposal.

    you need to negotiate and take, you can pay for gas, oil or other weapons
    the same goes for help from the DPRK, these guys generally need to be attracted to the battlefield, paid on a par with our mobilized and for construction instead of neighboring countries

      A neighbor hired two North Koreans to lay tiles in the bathroom and toilet. Their team worked for us in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk at a construction site under a contract. They came on a day off, they said that the elder allowed, but not during working hours As a result: they took half the money for the work than our tilers, they did the work much faster than ours, they did the work very well

    I’m bastard from the author’s lackey worldview ... We had these SCUDs like dirt, how could they steal them ... The failure with military engineering drones does not imply the destruction of the main striking force of the ground forces of the ISKANDER type by the ruling universal people ...

    If everything was taken away by the efficient ones, then you need to buy everything and wet and wet suckers without stopping. Or then we will spend more on psychiatrists.

    Americans are used to stealing technology around the world, and then pass it off as their own.
    And we are prophesied that without Iranian missiles, there is nowhere right away. They also forgot about North Korea.

    When Iranian missiles are at the front, then you will draw coverage areas. There are a lot of weapons in North Korea, buy them. The owner does not allow!
