    It is thought that the Fadjr 5 is a modified copy of the Chinese older WS-1B. The Iranian replaced the WS-IB fixed fins with folding fins. Fixed fins are more accurate in a rocket while folding fins make handling and loading easier. The Chinese intend the WS-1B to be a pin point weapon, where as the Fadjr 5 is intended for other purposes -- ie the Israelis are having heart burn over the Fadjr-5 (GEN 2). It has to small a warhead for that kind of range and the Iranians already have the far better D-110 for that kind of range. But the Fadjr-5 (Gen 2) is a very cheap weapon for another use.

    This guy must have seen the special Indian troops at the changing of guard at the one crossing on the Indian-Pakistan Border. They hire these soldiers who can take their feet straight up above their heads.

    Thy were first salvaged from Iraqi forces in the Iran-Iraq War. They were improved and localized with the help of China. They link up with SkyGuard Fire Control System. Iranian Crotale and FM-80 seem to use two different sets of radar and optics, one Iranian and the other Chinese. They are one of the modern Iranian air defense weaponry, identical in performance to Chinese models. 24 FM-80 fire units were confirmed to be obtained in 2000.




    Shahab Thaqeb - Iran's international SAM, Surface-to-Air

    New photographs of Iran's Shahab Thaqeb short-range surface-to-air missile system confirm earlier suggestions that the weapon (earlier known as the Ya-zabra) is based on both the Thomson-CSF (now Thales) R440 Crotale, and the French weapon's HY-7/ FM-80 Chinese derivative.

    In 1999 it was revealed that Iran had apparently reverse-engineered the Crotale system, working on the basis of Crotale hardware captured from Iraq during the 1980-88 Gulf War. Since Iran is reported to have procured a number of Chinese National Precision Machinery Import and Export Corporation (CPMIEC) HY-7/FM-80 (Feimeng-80 = Flying Midge-80) Crotale derivative SAM systems, and perhaps the follow-on FM-90 system, technology derived from those systems was thought likely to have found its way into the Ya-zahra project. The Shahab Thaqeb SAM system is believed to have been in service with the Iranian Air Force for several years.

    One question: have you any idea of how Iriaf pilots consider MiG 29?
