HIMARS Hysteria! Iran Claims Testing Indigenous Fath 360 Missiles That Is ‘Very Similar’ To US Army’s MLRS

 HIMARS Hysteria! Iran Claims Testing Indigenous Fath 360 Missiles That Is ‘Very Similar’ To US Army’s MLRS

But, experts now believe that Iran conducted a military exercise in which it tested its domestically made Fath 360 satellite-guided missile, similar to HIMARS.

Iran recently carried out a  only ground troops exercise known as Eghtedar 1401. The exercise demonstrated Iran’s extensive weaponry while holding massive military operations in the desert.

 thought the exercise, the country’s military tested Fath 360 short-range surface-to-surface missile,  in spite of to a report from Fars News, and the system was used in combined arms exercises near Nasrabad, Isfahan. 

The missiles can be launched at Mach 3, then connect to satellites for quick homing before striking their targets at Mach 4, the state-run Tasnim News reported. 

It is difficult to determine the missile’s efficacy, but Iran appears to be confident that its new missiles are effective. It also launched a Fajr-5 missile during the exercise.

Tehran asserts that the Fath 360 has exceptional levels of precision and can track and destroy hostile targets. 

Iranian commanders said, “the guidance system of this missile is such that it communicates with several satellites every second and immediately corrects its course. Also, this missile is fired with a six-projectile launcher and is a rocket; long-range, accurate, and strategic.”

The Fath 360 has a diameter of 30 centimeters, a weight range of 850-1,100 kilograms, a warhead of 150 kilograms, and a range of 75 kilometers. It is four meters long. It could be deployed on a truck-based launcher because of its lightweight and relatively small dimensions, with six, four, or two-round launch canisters available.

The Iranian Army Ground Force established a missile unit in February and announced plans to update existing gear and add new equipment suited for quick-response operations.

Iran has made significant progress in manufacturing a diverse range of indigenous weaponry in recent years. This even allows their armed forces to be self-sufficient in the armaments sphere.

The country has particularly made tremendous progress in the drone industry, to the point where it has recently exported drones to Russia to aid it in its battle in Ukraine. These drones are currently demonstrating their  ability in combat. 

Iranian drones are small and fly at a low altitude, which makes it difficult for Ukrainian air  protection systems to spot them.

A Ukrainian artillery commander  disclose that Iranian drones had damaged two BTR armored infantry vehicles, two 122 mm self-propelled howitzers, and two 152 mm self-propelled howitzers in the brigade’s operational area alone.
