Iran Unveils New Advanced Missile Defense System

Fars News – June 9, 2019

Iran on Sunday unveiled a new home-made state-of-the-art missile defense system named ‘Khordad 15’ which is equipped with passive phased array radar system for detecting fighter jets, stealth targets and cruise missiles.

The missile defense system was unveiled in a ceremony participated by Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami and Commander of the Iranian Army’s Khatam ol-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Alireza Sabahi Fard in Tehran today.

Elaborating on the features and capabilities of the defense shield, General Hatami said that it can trace targets, including fighter jets and enemy drones, 150km away and intercept them at a range of 120km.

“It can also trace stealth targets in areas 85km in distance, and destroy them at a distance of 45km,” he added.

General Hatami said that the missile defense system can trace, engage, and destroy 6 targets simultaneously, enjoys high mobility and can be prepared for operation in less than 5 minutes.

“The system is equipped with (passive) phased-array radar system with a multiple-target-engagement capability. It also has separate launch pads, and operates with Sayyad 3 missiles,” he underlined.

The Iranian military officials have in several occasions said that the country’s advances in building different military equipment are merely aimed at defending the country against any possible aggression.

In relevant remarks last month, General Sabahi Fard underscored high power of the country’s radar and missile systems, warning of a crushing response to possible threats.

He stressed that the country enjoyed integrated missile and radar systems, saying the Army constantly monitored threats on land, air and sea so that if the enemy wanted to take any action, it would face a firm and crushing response.

He said that the Iranian Armed Forces were using all capacities, including good training, to promote their power against all possible challenges.

  1. Israel has got the fools in the USA and UK go go bomb muslim countries
    and then got its terror groups like isis al queada al nusra Islamic front etc
    to push the people all over to us
    This was a big mistake.
    as a huge 5th column is now waiting inside each country, and as soon as the USa and UK starts its belligerancy, they will attack from the inside
    The politicians who imported in all these millions should be stood against the wall and shot
    for the racist traitors they are

  2. Cornelious sounds like your the racist here.
    What fith column? You talking about the Hindustan immigrants (now knows as Pakistan, India and Bangladesh)?
    The West Indians?
    The Africans?

    Which minority group do you refer to as a fith column? Do elaborate instead of spewing nonsense you hear from fear mongers like Tommy Robbinson (aka Steven Yaxley Lennon, cannot even use his real name the coward).

    Nearly every minority who has come to this country as a migrant has integrated and contributes to society, even more so than the native white population in most areas (doctors, nurses, small to medium sized business (who btw pay more tax into this country than large corporations who base themselves in tax havens to avoid paying into this country they make the vast majority of their money in!)), who have grown complacent on benefits and sleeping around (too bad they no longer have Jeremy Kyle to sort their problems out for free lol).

    I will tell you who refuses to integrate or contribute though, most of the eastern Europeans, especially the Romanians. They are a leach on this nation and continue to suck as much as they can to send home, before leaving this country when they think they have enough or cannot get any more.
    So are they the fith column you refer to?

    Asides from a small minority of the migrant community who turned to crime as a easy income, there are no violent migrants looking to overthrow the government of kill any of the native whites, they all come here to make a batter life for their family (nearly all of the invited after ww2 by the Queen to revive the economy, all without the UK would be like former USSR states at present).
    It is evident by the fact nearly every migrant family is now a upper lower to middle class household, who are property owners paying tax on their income, unlike the above complaicant native population who outside of the middle class, are mostly lower class council estate families, happy to live in their social housing for free while they indulge in crime to fund their clubbing lifestyle etc.

    Btw my portayal of the native white lower class is a sterotypical and predjudiced view that has been embelished to make it look far worse than it is (kind of like what you have done, but not as baseless or ignorant as your comment, it is formed from actual facts with exaggeration)

    So please keep your uneducated racist views off the internet, as fear mongers like yourself will cause a civil war along the lines of race and religion, by stoking the fears of uneducated people like yourself and giving the racists like yourself an excuse to do violence in the name of their racism, disguised as patriotism and national interest.

  3. @’Mojo’ – You are a fool, you didn’t even read or comprehend what he said – he wasn’t even talking about the immigrants to Britain.

    as a huge 5th column is now waiting inside each country, and as soon as the USa and UK starts its belligerancy, they will attack from the inside

    Maybe when you take your head out of his backside, you will comprehend what he is saying yourself.
    He is clearly eluding to attacks inside the US and UK by this phantom city column.

    But just like Brexit, you all claim it has nothing to do with immigrants, apparently you just want your country back from the EU. But nearly everyone who voted out did so due to racism and fear of said immigrants mainly.
