Erm. Guidance kits for locally-produced guerilla rockets? Or factory-assembled ones?
It's scary either way tbh.
Lebanese Hezbollah possesses thousands (Israeli 2019 estimate = 14,000) of Iranian-made Zelzal unguided long range artillery rockets (600kg payload, 200km, 0.6m diameter). The Iranian guidance kits convert these unguided rockets into precision guided missiles = 14,000 cheap precision guided missiles from existing Hezbollah inventories.

Lebanese Hezbollah also has local production facilities and, with Iranian help, is producing solid fuel SRBMs (likely Fateh-class), and has imported an unknown number of these directly from Iran also.

For reference, 8 Dezful/Zolfaqar and 4 Zelzal missiles were used to strike the mock-up of the Israeli Dimona reactor (not yet known what the target of the MRBMs was).

The Target is a mock up of the Israeli Dimona Reactor. So this mock attack would probably leave half the Middle East as a Fallout game.
This mock attack was designed to deter an Israeli attack against Iran's nuclear reactors by showing how Iran would react to defend itself. The era of hit and run is over, an eye for an eye.

As pointed to after the barge attack. Mannequin and targets don’t have live defenses and shoot back.
Apparently the American bases in Iraq don't have live defences or shoot back either.

Regardless, in this context Iran is/would be the one 'shooting back'. So as long as the Zionist regime doesn't go full insane and attack Iran's nuclear facilities then Iran will not destroy Dimona. Nothing to worry about as the Zionist apartheid regime cannot destroy Iran's nuclear facilities anyway, as most Zionist/American military experts are well aware.

Putting aside the usual Iranian unique style in creating rather "engaging" videos, I think the message conveyed by the test was pretty clear.

If Israel attacks Iran's nuclear facilities, Iran will retaliate by counter-attacking Israel's nuclear reactor

The most important part of the business is the GPS ICs.
The USA / USA colony made ones has height and speed restriction, stop working above 18km and speed of sound.

Additionaly the USA frequently disable / dislocate the civilian frequency on certain areas.

OTher hand, the GLONASS / BAIDU IC other issue.

The main thing is the restrictions built into the ICs, means a hacker could disable it - and it is hard to discover hack, considering the final product going into a missile, not to the open market as a game console capable to play pirated games.

By the pervious experiences , and considering the many manufacturer of ICs it is easy to hack this kind of ICs with ten-twenty engineers and hald year work.

New exo-atmospheric manoeuvring warhead for anti-ABM (Arrow 3, SM-3, THAAD) manoeuvres

View attachment 80337
A great feat for Iran to unveil for the first time the technology of its exoatmospheric trajectory detachable warheads for the Qadr medium-range ballistic missile.

The warhead technology or maneuverability outside the atmosphere is accomplished with the help of pressurized gas pulses or double liquid fuel, and when changing the warhead direction, the trajectory is variable and the exact direction of the warhead is unpredictable. Therefore, this capability greatly reduces the chances of an air defense missile hitting a warhead.

Exoatmospheric trajectory maneuvering technology, in addition to increasing the accuracy, guidance and maneuvering of the Qadr missile in the atmosphere, increases its penetrability against missile defenses.

The maneuverability of medium to high-range ballistic missile warheads can be achieved in two ways: maneuverability outside the atmosphere and hypersonic flight in the atmosphere. Considering the challenges of hypersonic wave warheads such as temperature management, orientation, materials and manufacturing process, the exo-atmospheric maneuver method appears to be the most ideal option considering the performance, cost and time to upgrade conventional ballistic missile warheads in order to escape the air defense missiles.

For example, in this method, old warheads can be upgraded and there is no need to use complex and expensive new refractory materials; The basic warhead design doesn't change much and there's no need to design from scratch.

According to studies, apparently the only country that has officially revealed and used exo-atmospheric maneuvering technology so far is Russia with the

and the US with the LGM-118 Peacekeeper intercontinental ballistic missile using Post Boost Vehicle.

Now, with this unveiling, Iran is one of the owners of this technology.

Simorgh SLV launches 3 satellites into space (fails to insert into desired 470km orbit)

For the first time, the Simorgh SLV became a multi-satellite carrier and launched three payloads into space at a 470km orbit.

Unfortunately, the payloads were not inserted into the desired orbit because the speed of 7350 m/s was less than the required 7633 m/s required.

This is the fourth or fifth consecutive failure of the Simorgh SLV to insert a satellite into orbit correctly.

  • Successful launch of multiple payloads in one SLV - an important development of a key technology only possessed by five nations.
  • In the last attempt, the Simorgh reached approx. 6500 m/s (17% below required speed), this launch managed to reach 7350 m/s (only 4% below the required speed) - much closer to the required 7633 m/s, showing some improvements.
Personally, I think the Simorgh merits one final launch attempt due to some progress in reaching the required delta-v. Otherwise, its extremely complex design should be retired and launches of the more advanced, and much simpler, Zoljanah should take priority.
