WarZone: Iranian "ballistic missile storm" is already on the Ukrainian horizon


All signs point to Russia acquiring hundreds of Iranian short-range ballistic missiles such as the Fateh-110 and Zulfiqar. And this can be a big problem for Ukraine. This point of view was expressed by the American edition of WarZone.


It will not be easy for the Ukrainian side to defend against these weapons, since ballistic missiles can strike anywhere in the country, putting at risk an already worn-out energy infrastructure.

Meanwhile, the NASAMS anti-aircraft missile systems supplied by the West and the German IRIS-T SLM systems can provide some assistance to Ukraine. However, none of these air defense systems can successfully intercept a large number of Iranian ballistic missiles. Also, according to American experts, Kyiv can to some extent rely on outdated Soviet S-300 systems, which are available in small numbers in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

At the same time, ballistic missiles hit much harder than cruise missiles and carry larger warheads than long-range kamikaze drones. The accuracy of Iranian short-range ballistic missiles is known in the West - they are quite capable of destroying Ukrainian electricity production and distribution centers, which can lead to horrific consequences.

WarZone also indicated that the quality of Iranian ballistic missiles has been tested in practice, including against the interests of the United States and its allies in Iraq. At the same time, it is known that Iranian missiles are fast and maneuverable, which makes them difficult to intercept and provides enhanced kinetic impact even on hardened targets. Just a couple of hundred such missiles, reaching their targets without hindrance, can lead to a catastrophe for the energy industry of Ukraine.

To counter such weapons, Washington may transfer to Kyiv the MIM-104 Patriot air defense system optimized for intercepting ballistic missiles, and in the future, short-range ballistic missiles MGM-140 Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS).

    Lived ... The heirs of the great Soviet Union - they buy missiles from Iran. For their own - apparently Nema. A brilliant result of 30 years of capitalism. And - 22 years of sitting on the throne.

      All signs point to Russia acquiring hundreds of Iranian short-range ballistic missiles such as the Fateh-110 and Zulfiqar.

      Iran says it has developed its first hypersonic ballistic missile.

      This was announced by the commander of the Aerospace Forces of the IRGC Amir-Ali Hajizade, writes Tasnim.

      “I don’t think that within decades there will be technologies that can withstand it,” he added.

    Why disperse pseudo-news in the format "one grandmother said" about all sorts of fakes ..? (for ballistic missiles against stationary targets, and they already have something to bomb at any distance, there is not enough political will, not missiles).

      This is of course true, but the question arises - is there not enough "political will" to use their drones, and not buy from Iran?
      I think that if the information about the purchase of missiles is confirmed, then it will not be nonsense, but rather something natural - you don’t have your own - buy from third countries. And fuck that the heirs of the great USSR crap with their production.

        ps Again, I can't get past lure like Rostec along with Chemezov. Like all other large state corporations, they are not engaged in real production, but in cutting, creating the appearance of work.

    it turns out that the calibers did not help, the martyrs too, now there is hope for Iranian ballistic missiles, but if lions are commanded by sheep, then this will not help either

      Russia is not commanded by sheep, but lately, by thieves and corrupt officials who have been oppressing and deceiving the citizens of Russia for an unmeasured amount of time (go from 1990).

      Not sheep, but worse. At least you can eat sheep, but these will only belch smelly.

      Old Ecclesiastes was wrong - a lion, even a dead one, is much, much better than a live dog. Because he is a lion. This is clearly seen, for example, in the comparison of Comrade Stalin and our current type of leadership ..

        Why are you like this, a dog-friend, protector and helper?

    What can I say about missiles, these stupid people couldn’t even build or buy a fleet to sell oil in 30 years, the Greeks carry half of our oil. All excess profits were spent on mansions in Europe

    as the experience of the so-called SVO showed, even the outdated Ukrainian s300, etc., showed themselves very well, as for old people. And thousands of different missiles fired across Ukraine could not break it. Why, then, did they decide that several hundred Iranian missiles were something can drastically change?
    And if we proceed from Peskov’s fresh words, then, it seems, the liberals have finally won in the Russian Federation and the so-called NWO will generally be merged with all the consequences, telling the next tales and waiting for Kyiv to deign to start negotiations.
