you haven’t told any of us how Iran will track and send target coordinates to the missile? Iran may have the most sophisticated gyroscopes but the kill chain still needs the exact coordinates of the target. Again you assume the target will not move after the warhead reenters the atmosphere.INS/laser carbon fiber gyroscopes is its primary use. They are extremely accurate and Iran is a master of this tech as can been seen from its BM usage on Assad Air base, but naturally lose accuracy the longer the flight goes on.
GLNSS coordinates only needs to be provide once prior to decent than onboard computer computes the rest.
This missile flies to Tel Aviv in 6 mins.
A destroyer at war with Iran is at best somewhere near Arabian Sea. So total time from detection to impact will be less than 4 mins.
Lol exaggerate much? a rocket takes an average of 8 to 9 minutes just to get to LEO.
You do know that NORAD tracks all missile launches worldwide. You speak of the BM attack on Al Asad, the US knew precisely where each projectile would impact the base a minute after the missiles were launched as per the statement made by the US space command a few weeks after the attack.That is assuming it started evasive maneuver the moment the missile was fired, which is unrealistic because that would mean every ship in the US navy in the Middle East would all need to begin evasive maneuvers since it is impossible to know who the target is (land target vs ship target) at launch.
You watch too much Hollywood movies.
You just reminded me of the sheer futility of engaging an Iranian in an intellectually honest discussion on PDF. I‘m checking out.
