Subject: Iranian new air defenses
Galderio    2/10/2005 8:28:07 AM
well, they are buying new systens and plan to spend few hundreds of millions . The new version of tungunska is far better than the previous and are claimed to have the capabilty to fire missiles without using the radar. The russians are offering thermal sigths, modern data link equipement and the new missiles have twice it´s origianl range. Ok! we can consider it as a short or medium range AD that can avoided with higth altitude flying, but together with a long range system, like S-300 or another similar, good comunication systens and well elaborated tactics it could be a big trouble for US figthers. -What do you think ? -Does anybody have more information about the systnes iranians are buiyng?

If we had some ham, we could make ham and cheese sandwiches. If we had some cheese. And some bread. Feel free to direct my attention to whatever you saw that talked about Iran and the Tunguska. By the way, it is definitely a short-range, low-altitude system that would have very little effect on American aircraft in most scenarios as we will be dropping JDAMs from 25,000ft. It might give them some point-defense anti-cruise missile capability, though. They would be a good choice for trying to achieve some self-protection of some S-300 battalions if they would ever buy any of those. Displacedjim

I think the US. ought to give the Isreal's 10-12 f-117's to take care of the airdefense systems And the nuke facilaties.Also maybe 200-300 cruse missles..Lee

Ummm,... "AMR"? I don't know what that is. Actually I'm part of the great Air Force Reserve empire. The "displaced" part is something I picked several years ago as I was feeling rather separated from family, friends, and desired vocation at that time. I've kept it ever since. Displacedjim
