    He really believes Fateh uses such an ancient front sonar?

    Iranian Missiles | News and Discussions

    Yes, but lets hope IRGC-ASF developes such <50kg, 1m resolution cubesats faster than the space agencys roadmap. Of course infrared and SAR are needed too and may bring results faster than opticals.

    9 optical sats at 50kg each and claimed 1m resolution. Iran needs such a capability for wartime and is working towards it.

    Iranian UAVs | News and Discussions

    Navy goes the smart path and acquires IRGC developed Shahed-129. IRIAF does the 180° path and goes for their own Kaman-12 low-tech UAV... Different class and different costs, I know but its a display of the IRIAF "old guard" thinkers, still with 3rd world mentality.

    Iranian Chill Thread

    The issue is to give the Europeans a valid reason why this is done. This is a escalation step by Iran, no one wants Iran to have a non-destructible centrifuge assembly hall. Hence Iran says "hey we are attacked and need to do that", who wants to deny it that? Thats a win in a loss for Iran.

    Irans missiles cities are made to be totally demolished at their entrances, yet still dig out and continue launches. No runways, no foreign object damage... A futuristic underground airbase could get its entrance opening masked by rock formations, so that only one approach direction is possible...

    @TheImmortal " I agree. However, your rebuttal merely serves my point in that SU-57 is more a defense fighter jet rather than a fighter jet ment to penetrate foreign airspace and cause havoc. " The F-22 can get closer to emitters, the Su-57 fly faster and farther, which one is better for...

    A fleet of 60 Su-35 would act as a catalyst for Irans IADS. At that number, real added value. A fleet of 250 Su-57 would only drain money from missile and air defense projects. A fleet of 300 5th Gen. Iranian fighters built from 2030-2040 could be justified and create a expeditionary force...

    F-22's only advantage is in stealth performance. This comes at a 4-5x higher cost compared to the Su-57. Su-57 is a balanced design, alone its kinematic performance (with its final engines) makes up for the somewhat lower LO performance. As weapon system its superior due to cost-effect...

    They are now state UAC. If it was Mig, then that free business argument could work. Su-57 is their top product, they will sell it anyway, but not to an ambitious country like Iran.

    Russia almost certainly won't sell Iran the Su-57. As said in one of my previous posts: 4-6 squadrons of Su-35 would soften the pressure on Irans IADS from a concentrated enemy airpower attack on a single sector. But that's not a critical issue, just adds flexibility.

    IRIAF | News and Discussions

    Love that statement on the video: Most important and critical system of the Su-57, is the engine. I also love this statement by Irans DM Hatami: 90% of our defense needs we meet by ourselves, the reminder 10% is not critical for our defense capability (meaning fighters and the air force) So...

    Iranian Ground Forces | News and Equipment

    Fair enough, can't argue with you on that, other than: Iran has no unlimited stock of such sights for new Karrars. Even if Iran has copied it: Its a complex non-TI sight, a modern design would probably cost less. It was used on pre production Karrars but I expect the final product to be quite...

    Not economical for new built Karrars, but for existing ones yes. Plus missiles would lack TI night capability.

    4 different tank TI gunners sights in Iran... A low-end for Chieftains: Army SSJ One for T-72M/S: IRGC SSJ This one, probably for T-72, maybe also for M60: DIO Karrar high-end one with ATGM missile guidance laser channel: DIO

    Last year Iran showed a full blown X-band AESA, it should have been mentioned somewhere in this thread.

    Iranian Air Defense Systems

    Sure but at least the Separ will likely go for a more advanced solution. Iran has already shown more advanced technology suitable. Its about costs and reliability. In that field this Kashef might be quite good. Btw. instead of being happy that it fits on a low-profile vehicle like a Toyota...
