ABout IRAN "reverse engineering the last drone picture" , they might be able to get something
of it but the missile looks more like auto destroyed.. than anything for being nearly complete
the body. All NATO cruise missiles also have this feature. this is for security in case the missile deviate from its intended fly path ,so that it do not land or explode in the wrong place and kill
a side note that people needs to know and many ignore about cruise missiles.
is that they are pretty much useless without satellite guidance.. that IRAN do not have.
,neither Israel have or any other country in the world other than US and Russia. The european Union is working in one ,same China and India, but is far from ready for military use.
This is if they intent the missile to strike any country with an acceptable precision. So any Iranian generals claims they have 100% precision in their missiles is complete Bullshit. IRAN do not have any capability to hit Israel from IRAN with any precision unless it receive external support from a major power.
Cruise missiles also need inertial navigation and ground matching computer guidance so they do not collide with terrain and the missile knows when it needs to fly high and when low.. IRAN do not have any technology like that..Iranian made missiles are ballistic and with no satellite precision or any acceptable precision . Will need to develop their own computers ,their own software ,and their own satellite navigation system.. to achieve that. and you cant "reverse engineer" that..
this is all the things that IRAN will need to know if they lucky to manage to reverse engineer a Russian modern cruise missile. So grabbing a piece of metal with burned circuits and wires will be not enough to reproduce it. It will need to learn the hows to is done too. But even if they reproduce 100% the missile , (very unlikely) it will need a satellite navigation system in space that Iranian dont have/ and will never have.. for the sole reason that it do not have the economy and technology to sustain something like that.. not even china or India have a complete navigation system and depends on Russia Glonass for any precision or GPS,which American can block for them. And to make things worse any Navigation system that consist of at least 28 satellites around the world with ground stations around the world to calibrate them.
Any attempt of IRAN to develop and navigation system in space will be neutralized by NATO and
ISRAEL. they will never allow IRAN the capability to strike over long distance with any precision . Any satellite that IRAN try to deploy to aid its missiles in any way will be simply shot down or fried with lazers by NATO or Israel... So good luck to IRAN trying to become a space power.. it will never happen ever as long Israel and NATO exist. and ironically Russia will now allow this either ,same way that Russia will not allow that in North Korea ,even if they have good relations .. Because allowing a nation that its supreme ruler is worshiped like a God and are religious fanatatics are not exactly something that will inspire trust in RUssia. So to steal any technology from Russia. that will be the most foolish thing that IRAN could do.. Because will mean the end of any technical cooperation with IRAN and technology share.if it wasn't by Russia ,IRAN will have been invaded already by NATO and its nuclear reactor bombed.. easily. To defeat a massive attack on a nuclear reactors you need a powerful airforce than iran don't have.. and a very powerful air defense too .. that neither IRAN have. It have good Radars provided by Russia. in short Russia largely is what feed IRAN with technology for self defense and it will be in their interest to not break those relations and be left behind in technology.ood relations with So any attempt of Iran to reverse engineering any cruise missile from Russia and keeping g Russia at same time is not compatible.
Without Russia help IRAN will have no way to fight NATO.
Thanks To Russia..
1)IraN have a modern nuclear reactor they can use to truly learn the art of making them
and even develop long range submarines and warships that can navigate the entire world without refueling. this is a major advance for iran.
2)IRAN have avoided being attacked by US and Israel.. because its air defenses and Airforce
stand no chance against any major attack of them. and neither IRAN have any way to strike back if attacked.. all they can do is bomb Saudi Arabia that is near. you many times Military
Installations destroyed in IRAN.. by mysterious forces of nature... you bet it was a cruise missile
launched by Israel.
3)Iran could end its isolation with the west. and being upgraded with technology for self defense. But without Russia IRAN will have been like IRAQ today. with many ISIS mercenaries
inside and NATO flying over IRAN.. to "bomb isis". Because they could not target IRAN ,since will have Russia in the rear flank from the caspian sea ,defending them ,the picked Syria first.
that is surrounded by enemies and far from Russia.
Russia policy needs to be balanced between East and west. otherwise will have Israel providing
nuclear weapons to Russian border countries.. so Russia primary policy should be to defend its nation and not take decisions that could put at risk the security of Russia for annoying too much Israel.
