Iranian missiles will allow Russia to replenish the ammunition of tactical-level weapons

Russia is expanding cooperation with Iran in the field of armaments. According to CNN, Moscow plans to purchase Iranian drones and long-range ballistic missiles, against which the Ukrainian air defense has no effective means of protection.

We are talking primarily about the Fateh-110 and Zulfikar missiles.

"Fateh-110" (pictured above) is an operational-tactical missile system mounted on a three-axle vehicle chassis. The complex uses solid-fuel ballistic missiles equipped with control and guidance systems using inertial and satellite navigation. Along with this, infrared homing heads are used in the missiles.

The Fateh missiles are of the Ormuz modification with anti-radar seekers that are capable of withstanding enemy radars and air defense systems. This can play an important role in suppressing the means of Ukrainian air defense.

Compared to the Russian Iskander, Fateh is cheaper and has a larger warhead mass, while being inferior in range.

"Zulfikar" is an improved modification of "Fateh-110": the rocket body is lightened and lengthened by 1,5 meters, the solid-propellant engine is improved. Pointing accuracy is improved thanks to the infrared seeker. The range of the missile is about 700 km.

Iranian missiles will allow Russia to replenish the ammunition of tactical-level weapons

Deliveries of Iranian missiles will allow the Russian Armed Forces to intensify strikes against Ukrainian military and energy facilities, as well as effectively replenish the ammunition of tactical-level weapons. These weapons can make a significant contribution to the implementation of a special operation through high-precision GPS guidance systems. In addition, the mobility and maneuverability of missile systems is of great importance - after the launch of the missiles, the installations can be quickly relocated to another place.

    This is all good, of course, and is necessary at this stage, but this should not replace the possibility of our military-industrial complex enterprises producing an absolutely sufficient amount of all types of the most modern and highly effective weapons for our armed forces, including all types of missiles, due to the current extremely difficult situation, it is necessary an immediate and significant increase in the capabilities of our military-industrial complex, thoughtlessly and unjustifiably reduced by the liberal branch of power, now we will be able to survive and save our country only thanks to the strength and really high combat capability of our army and navy, this must be given the highest priority, otherwise we simply cannot survive.

    Are Points-U in warehouses, or were they sold to Ukrainians at one time?

Ukraine used them with might and main, especially scattering cassette parts ... but apparently they just ran out of them corny ... but where are ours ...... I foresee an answer! Do not ask stupid questions ..... probably in the same place where 1.5 million sets of uniforms are .... they say they ate mice.!!!
