The only thing this agency “launches” is press releases and conferences.
Yeah def need more action. Like any endeavor tempo is key. Just start launching and increase the pace--even if small. Make pronouncements as the operational temp increases.The only thing this agency “launches” is press releases and conferences.

IRGC Space force is in the lead here.
Zuljanah’s slow development and deployment is not the answer. The next logical SLV that can succeed is Sarir, which is basically the Simorgh except with a re-designed 2nd stage. That was Simorgh’s biggest problem, a flawed and weak 2nd stage.
While Iran waits for Soroush and it’s new ‘Bahman’ engines to mature, Sarir can be ISA’s reliable SLV light carrier.
I’m skeptical on Zuljanah, I think it too will have reliability issues and is being pushed to the max. Better as a redesigned 4000+KM missile than a SLV.
“Next PERSIAN year”. Given the history of these pronouncements it could be 2024.
Already replacing Salman with improved engine, launch of latest Ghaem-105 SLV likely in 2023 (Previous iteration Ghaem-100)
One can only think had him and his team still been around, Ghaem-120 would've already been complete.It seems Tehrani Moghadam’s death set Iran’s long range missile/SLV program back 15 years
Q-120 prototype seems to be what he was working on perfecting before his death.
Now I’m not saying his death alone (and much of his team) was the sole reason for the long length of time. Likely after that Iran shifted focus to improving BM accuracy, while they rebuilt a new team from scratch using whatever was left of his research.
Nonetheless, his death and the death of Solemani likely have set the Republic back over half a century combined in terms of progress of Iran’s interests.
This is why operational security (OpSec) and safety such always be prioritized for Iran‘s high value personnel.
I don’t believe that’s true. He was a manager and leader of men. The impact was more the Rohani government or to a lesser extent the cadre of scientists that lost their lives in the accident.One can only think had him and his team still been around, Ghaem-120 would've already been complete.
Evidently this claim was the result of an 💩iaea💩 inspector making a mistake...Seems like Iran's actions in reconfiguring the cascades in Fordow has annoyed some people, in what is to me quite obvious that tests/training were done to enrich to 90% in a rapid pace.
