thanks for the great photos and descriptions
Mark, do you think Iran has functional AIM-54's?
I read somewhere that the IRIAF still have?/use? ATM-54 training rounds and that Iran has reverse engineered some Phoenix rounds and even upgraded them from A designation to somewhere comparable to the C designation
this seems like the first time I've seen boragh with anti-air guns... what are those guns?
Paul, it's an open question whether Iran has successfully improvised service kits and recharged warheads for the AIM-54A. Same applies for how many cores remain after the war, as well as how many functioning AWG-9 radar sets in their possession. They're certainly suggesting they have this capability by parading a newly painted example.
well I wouldn't like to be the gunner, yet i guess if you hide/disperse them enough you could get a few chopper piltos swearing..
Mr.Uskowi, the vehicle you identified as a M-109A1 is actually an M-109A1 turret on BMP chassis, most likely an Iranian built variant called the "Boraq." I believe the self-propelled artillery model is referred to by the name "Raad."
the Self proppelled artillery identified as M-109A1 is actually a Raad-2 155mm.
Thanks for the input, guys. I thought there was room for seven road wheels but obviously the tracks are different, which is a giveaway. I'll make the change.
Also the missiles you identified as "C-801K and C-802K air-launched AShMs" is wrong. These are Iranian-made training rounds of the Kh-58 and Kh-29. But in the case of the Kh-29 training round, it is hard to tell which version, since there are three around, namely the ML,L and T version.
ancient relics and toys.
os caras fabricam os misseis msm!!Vcs precisam pesquisar mais em vez de falar bobagens!!!
