The Network reminded that Iran has bombs that would be useful to Russia


In the face of sanctions pressure and a limited military budget, Iran has learned how to effectively modernize its existing weapons machinery. Unable to purchase expensive modern aircraft, the Iranian military is developing and updating ammunition for old combat vehicles.


A video has appeared on the Web of the use by pilots of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of guided bombs of the Yasin series, installed on deeply outdated Soviet Su-60 fighters of the 22s of the last century. These precision-guided bombs hit targets up to 50 km away, allowing them to attack enemy positions without entering enemy air defense coverage.


Successful launches of 250-kilogram guided missiles were carried out during the Great Prophet-17 exercises. Previously, the Yasin bombs were dropped by the Persians from Chinese F-7 fighters, which are a copy of the Soviet MiG-21.

Against this background, the use by our Air Force of 4++ generation Su-35 fighters, dropping classic FAB-250s, while in the zone of destruction of Ukrainian air defense, looks somewhat illogical. Equipping with Persian Yasin guided missiles would significantly increase the effectiveness of the Russian airborne forces, which are far superior in flight characteristics to the Su-22, and would reduce to zero the risk of losing fighters during sorties in the NVO zone.

    In addition to quick purchases from Iran, it would be a good idea to upgrade those bombs that are in Russian warehouses into the planned ones.

      Replica. There are developments and single copies of planning bombs, but there is no mass production. As with all new products, corruption and embezzlement of allocated funds is an explanation for this state.

    We need to think about what we can offer Iran if suddenly it is attacked by a community of people posing as the successors of the ancient Jews. laughing

    All the same, the planned bombs are much more expensive than conventional ones. And fit less
    I don’t know how much we have, but if there is an opportunity, it’s easier to use the usual ones.

    There are no bombs of their own, there is no manufacturing industry, which means buying a way out. Buy bombs, missiles, drones, etc. CBO showed the inferiority of the existing system when there is nothing.

    NPO "Basalt" proposed to complete free-falling aerial bombs with planning and correction modules. Apparently the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation was not interested in this. But in vain! Now such bombs would be useful!
