Is it me or does the Sejjil after launch look gray instead of blue?

Mehdi, I noticed the same thing. Could be the photography, could be it's not the same missile.

Additionally, note on the left-side photo how the Sejil is in the upright position, yet the TEL remains relatively uncovered. In fact, the whole cab section is uncovered.

These two pics are unverified.

Unlike the Shahab launch of GPIV, the claimed Sejil-2 launch was not given anywhere near the same coverage. I pointed this out in a future post.
