North Korea Helps Iran Build Hypersonics

Iran on the eve presented a hypersonic missile "Fattah" (in Farsi this word means "victory"), capable of hitting targets in the Middle East region and far beyond its borders. Experts from the Military Watch Magazine wrote about the appearance of such weapons in Tehran.

President Ibrahim Raisi and high-ranking officers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps were present during the ceremony, at which the public learned about Iranian hypersound. The range of the missile reaches 1400 km. Thus, Iran has joined Russia, China and North Korea, which already possess hypersonic technology.

The American edition points out that the Iranian missile industry lags behind the Russian, Chinese and North Korean ones. At the same time, Pyongyang influenced the appearance of the Fattah missile in Tehran. Iran once purchased from North Korea Hwasong-6, Rodong-1, and Hwasong-10 missiles with a range of about 4 km.

All this gave impetus to the development of missile production in Iran itself. Military Watch Magazine notes that the DPRK has received significant income from the export of weapons and technology to Iran.

Meanwhile, on May 29, the Fattah missile was successfully tested. The very first information about the creation of a hypersonic missile by Tehran appeared in November 2022, which greatly puzzled the United States and other Western countries. MW stressed that Iran has become the fourth country in the world to possess hypersonic weapons. Previous successes in the development of such technologies have been achieved in Russia, China and North Korea, while in the United States the hypersonic program is seriously stalled.

    Undoubtedly, Pyongyang reported years earlier about such achievements in rocket science. Iran has a long relationship with the DPRK, a lot of oil and money that the DPRK lacks due to sanctions.

    The high-precision missile "Fattah" due to the solid-propellant engine of the second stage is capable of maneuvering in the atmosphere and beyond at speeds up to Mach 15 to overcome the positional areas of air defense and missile defense of a potential enemy. Tactical capabilities are enhanced by the use of carbon fibers in the hull structure, which effectively absorb radar waves and reduce the infrared radiation of the rocket engine.
    Earlier, the Khorramshahr-4 medium-range ballistic missile with a range of up to 1,5 km and a warhead weight of 4 kg was successfully tested. The use of "ampouled" storage of liquid rocket fuel in Khorramshahr-XNUMX allows launching in the shortest possible time.

    Well, slowly, stationary air defense systems are beginning to become a thing of the past. We will need shell-type systems, but with ranges like those of the S-400. Otherwise, they will suffer the fate of the patriots in Ukraine.
