i need my brothers expert help,is this tube related to the cold boost mechanism or it is something else!
No,its way too small for a cold launch gas generator,not to mention that its in the wrong place,you would expect it to be right on the bottom end of the canister,not on the side of it.In addition the canister has no external reinforcing rings,which you would usually expect for cold launch,plus the end of the canister has a bolted plate over it,this is something you would usually see on a hot launch system,this cover is designed to blow out under pressure just after the motor fires inside the canister.


And heres an ATGM,the ground launched version of the Almaz

This pic has better detail than the previous one that I posted

And heres a view from the other side of the system

Personally I’m inclined to think the 3x2 launcher houses the fath missile.
compare the biggest fajr (5) rocket in this pick with the new launcher.

You can see that 4 fajr launch tubes in one row with a lot of space to spare. Hence increasing the likelihood that the new launcher belongs to the fath missile, with only 3 (larger) tubes in each row, as officially stated.

for reference, the smaller fath missile marked red in this pic:
