Iran overtook North Korean missile technology when introducing the Sejil missile. It's not me who says it but a NATO missile expert a few years ago

Very shallow news report with no actual substance, it didn't even mention what sort of missile would it be
Quasi Ballistic Hypersonic Missile like Kinzhal
Hypersonic Glide Vehicle like DF ZF (DF 17)
Hypersonic Cruise Missile like Zircon.
My guess a quasi ballistic hypersonic missile like Kinzhal because other 2 types are beyond the technological capabilities of Iran.
All the missiles you have mentioned have amazing marketing teams behind them.they cost alot
maybe the money should be spent elsewhere
and if they do make one it needs to get passed the Patriot, Arrow, Davids Sling and finally the Iron Dome
if Iran can get passed these then no high value target in Israel is safe
F35 are stored in deep under ground bunker but Hypersonic missiles can penetrate deep
The report didn't explicitly mentioned that will it be a quasi ballistic hypersonic missile or a hypersonic cruise missile or a HGV, and given that HGV's stay inside the upper reaches of the atmosphere for most of its flight path, I assumed that news reporter wrote those particular words by mistake (happens a lot in Indian journalism so I am a bit insensitive to the content of news reports).Literally said it’s a glide vehicle that can “move in and out of the atmosphere”.
So by simple logic it cannot be a quasi endo-atmospheric missile like Kinzhal which is just an air launched modified Iskander. Plenty of BMs are technically “hypersonic”. But when we speak hypersonics we generally now mean ones with HGV.
Iran does not possess the necessary air breathing hypersonic scramjet to create a hypersonic CRUISE missile. That tech is very difficult to master for any country outside of US, Russia, and China.
You are literally wrong since the commander said it skips in and out of upper atmosphere pointing to use of glide vehicle.
Russia’s promotion of Kinzhal is misleading as almost all BMs are hypersonic in nature. They have been for decades when 1960’s ICBM like minute man had Mach 8+
Iran does not posses hypersonic wind tunnels needed to do research on HGV's,
yes, but Russia came into the picture some years ago and helped North Korea further- look no further than North Korea having its own Hypersonic missiles- by process of elimination, only Russia could've provided North Korea with that technology in reality, but that provision to North Korea also advanced its missile program ALOT.Iran overtook North Korean missile technology when introducing the Sejil missile.
