Ahmadi nejad has confirmed that Iran is working on a new Launch Vehicle with 16 engines to send her first satellite to the space. He also said the new LV will carry satellite up to 700km. It sounds they are copying one of the Soyoz type of Rockets.



I think Ahmadi nejad has seen something like this and thought because it has 16 boosters so it has 16 engines. Btw if the news is correct, Iran is working on a new LV with several boosters. It is going to have a new figure and for the fisrt time with boosters.

Take a look at this Missile then you will find Iranian missile improvement. Iran has already tested Safir Launch Vehicle.

Currently there is no pic of the missile on the net, but I will try to find if there is any in the future. I read somewhere that it may be a copy or upgrade of TL-6 (Sky Dragon), but the source was a military forum without any reference.

do we have any details? i am reading these were the basic s3000's. Either way matched with the Tor's and used well, it will make any limited strike harder.

well i can narrow it down to the S-300PMU-1 (most likely) or the PMU-2. Its makes a big difference to know what S-300 it is. Refer to my old post in the greek thread. There were reports that more advanced ones were once talked about, but I would add this to the smokes and mirrors reporting that goes around a story with little facts to go by.

trying to build up a picture of what has been bought. hard if i cant get much on Greece i will have less of a chance with Iran

S-300PMU-1?
Quote
Iranian Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said on Wednesday that the contract with Russia would deliver to Iran S-300 systems under a timetable to be announced soon. Russian arms trader Rosoboronexport and contract’s executor Antey-Almaz did not comment on the statement but did not refute it either. Sources of Kommersant said that Russia has agreed to sell to Iran five S-300PMU-1 complexes worth $800 million. A source in the military industry reported that the contract had not been signed yet but talks were in a final stage. He, however, said that S-300PMU-1 might as well be sold to Iran from the arsenal of the Russian armed forces after necessary updates

*************
Contacts between Russia and Iran in military and technical cooperation got a major boost in early 2004 when Teheran asked Moscow’s help in creating a missile defense system. Moscow suggested using S-300PMU-1 systems for defense of the capital city and four other regions including industrial center Isfahan, main naval base in Bander Abbas (the Persian Gulf), the nuclear plant in Bushehr and oil terminals in Abadan and Khorramshar.

Iran was earlier in talks to buy an S-300V top tier army air defense system. Belarus, which also has the series in its arsenal, was to supply them to from Russia a new S-300PMU-2 system in return. But this option was no longer under consideration as relations between Moscow and Minsk got sour early this year.

In December 2005 Russia and Iran struck a deal to sell 29 Tor-M1 complexes for $700 million which was to act as a shield for S-300 systems. The Kommersant source in the Russian military industry said that “selling Tors first Moscow thought to check the world’s reaction to the contract”.


www.kommersant.com/p840222/Iran_Air_Defense_S-300/

Quote

TEHRAN, December 21 (RIA Novosti) - Russia has started the supplies of components for S-300 air defense systems to Iran, a senior Iranian lawmaker said on Sunday. (Russian mobile surface-to-air missile systems - Image gallery)

Esmaeil Kosari, deputy chairman of the parliamentary commission on national security and foreign policy told the Iranian news agency IRNA that Iran and Russia had held negotiations for several years on the purchase of S-300 air defense systems and had finalized a deal.

Kosari said the Islamic Republic would deploy S-300 surface-to-air missile systems to strengthen national defense on border areas.

Iran recently took delivery of 29 Russian-made Tor-M1 air defense missile systems under a $700-million contract signed in late 2005. Russia has also trained Iranian Tor-M1 specialists, including radar operators and crew commanders.

The U.S. and Israel, which have consistently refused to rule out the possibility of military action against Iran, were earlier alarmed by media reports, which started circulating as early as 2005, on the possible delivery of S-300 surface-to-air missiles to Iran, as these systems could greatly improve Iranian defenses against any air strike on its strategically important sites, including nuclear facilities.

The advanced version of the S-300 missile system, called S-300PMU1 (SA-20 Gargoyle), has a range of over 150 kilometers (over 100 miles) and can intercept ballistic missiles and aircraft at low and high altitudes, making the system an effective tool for warding off possible air strikes.


en.rian.ru/world/20081221


a few days earlier this source cant say which model.
Quote

It has been repeatedly stated that Iran expects to get five battalions of S-300PMUs, or up to 20 systems (60 launchers), depending on the make-up of a battalion. Each of the launchers carries four 48N6E missiles (48N6E2s with the PMU-2 mobile launchers) with a range of 150 kilometers (up to 200 kilometers for the 48N6E2s). Each launch system consists of three launchers and is capable of engaging six targets at the same time, aiming 12 missiles at them. One battalion consisting of four systems is, therefore, capable of dealing with 24 aircraft simultaneously. After changing position and replenishing ammunition, it can be quickly re-deployed for repulsing a repeat raid.

It should be remembered that S-300 missiles themselves need to be protected - for this purpose Iran can use Tor-M1 surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) and Chinese FM-80s. Coupled with S-300s, these short-range missiles can set up a credible air defense system able to protect the facility covered and itself. In this tandem, S-300s will act as a long arm to shoot down sophisticated targets at long distances, while close-in weapons will protect the facility and S-300s from cruise missiles, aircraft and UAVs that break through.

Oh i found this

10- Pantsyr-S1E
Quote
ran is set to acquire at least 10 96K6 Pantsyr-S1E self-propelled short-range gun and missile air defence systems, resulting from a major deal struck between Syria and Russia earlier this year.

A source close to the deal told Jane’s Defence Weekly that Moscow has agreed to sell Damascus “some 50 Pantsyr-S1E systems,” with initial deliveries set to begin later this year.

While most of the Pantsyr’s are earmarked for the Syrian Air Defence Command, “the end user for 10 of the systems is Iran,” said the source, adding that these should reach Tehran via Syria, in late 2008.

The contract signed by Syria and Russia is valued at USD730 million and according to the source, Iran will part finance the Syrian acquisition along with payment for its own 10 systems, to recompense Damascus for its compliance in the deal.

Thank you for the information Leo. I think Nasr2 is something like TL-10 or an upgraded version of it.

I wish Iran the best of luck if they ever get invaded by a western nation. It's sad to think that land as beautiful as Iran with so many (relatively) untouched historical sites could be reduced to rubble... All thanks to big scary bombs and greedy, hawkish, xenophobic politicians.

Finally, Iran has sent its first satellite to the space with an Iranian LV after a long and expensive program. The launch vehicle name is Safir 2 and Satellite name is Omid.
