Propulsion: solid
Length: N/A
Calibre: 152mm
Launch Weight: 37kg
Max Range: 5,000m
Armour Penetration: 1,200mm
Rate of Fire: 2 rounds/minute
Night Fighting: Detection 4km; Recognition: >2.5km

Wow Penetration at 1200mm, thats pretty good and lethal.

Back on Topic: Iran will be much harder then invading Iraq. I dont think we would be able to create enough troops or funds to have war with Iran.

Red arrows is not a problem what will be a problem for US aircraft is S-300. And isnt RA copy of TOW?


But anyway USA wont be able to attack Iran in the near future, USA's military is to small.

I am unconvinced of how dangerous the Red Arrow is to the M1 series of tanks. The armor on an M1 is designed to defeat HEAT rounds.

I also know for a fact that in Iraqi Freedom a Challanger 2 tank neer Basra using virtually the same armor as the M1 took a direct hit by a HEAT rocket and survived without injury to the crew.

Whisp do you know what type of ATGM that hit that tank? French built ATGMs are not to good I have heard. Turky did take one large order back and if my gut feeling arent messing around with me I think it could have been a French built one.

This Red Arrow missile are similar to the Russian Kornet-system is it not? There are two types of Kornet if I am not all out in the cold here, one more advanced and the other type sold to Syria?

Ds: Sweeds are making very effective ATGMs at the moment. Will be very hard for M1-M2 and even Challengers and Merkava 4 to survive those babys in the future. Time for the west to do as the Russians I think. Put on some very good Shtora systems, (even if I think those wont help anyway.) Im not sure but I think UK have this system or simular on there Challenger 2 MBTs? However it is a smart ATGM that makes more then penetrate armour. 8)

Prob one of this worlds best Anti-Tank missiles, America are druling for them if I am not entirly wrong informed. If I tell anything more I have to kill someone.
