is it just me or does this sound like proppaganda what i mean is this sort of news trying to tell us when we do go to war with iran it will be easy
because all there weapons are
from the stonage the only thing is the same bbc news site just last week was telling us that iran has just bought anti aircraft defences wel heres
Notionally, Iran has about the biggest armed forces in the Middle East, with more than half-a-million people in uniform, but decades of US-led arms
embargoes have had a huge impact on the strength of its conventional armed forces.
Wow thanks for the reply i did not think they would be to usless or they would of attacked them by now. i always new the beeb has pretty strong
i think this must be them getting all us sheep ready for whats to come and the shame of it is most people will believe it
"I guess some networks think some folks
dont fact check or know any better"
Where would they get a crazy idea like that?
BBC have been doing Iran down over the past few months now. Little digs here and there. My opinion is that these are not coming thick and fast
enough to suggest they are prepping the public for something. But it's like leaving little suggestions about the place that are subtle enough to worm
there way in. Planting the seeds so to speak.
just out of curiosity what are the majority of there fighters (dont know what words to use) class? are there tanks mostly old soviet designs or do
they produce a home grown version of there own tanks? not trying to dobut any one im just genuinely curious because from what ive seen most soviet era
technology hasent been that effective(the only example i can think of is how the bmp's fuel tanks surround the crew compartment and i may be wrong)
but what are the majority of there fighting vehicles and what not?
now i know its Wikipedia but does any one else find it surprising that they use the Uzi? a Jewish weapon kinda surprises me if there as angry at
Israel as they claim its really an interesting list though
kyber(sp) dosent look half bad but it seems like they ship them to the PLA and dont even give it to there troops but that would problay change
While it's nice to see a ME country that's at least "trying" be act like the big boys but no matter how powerful they say their weaponry is, it
won't matter in the least if they don't have the weapons systems and personnel training to boot.
And those videos you posted look as though Iran's no different than rednecks with their shooting into the air and "Dukes of Hazard" style driving.
I hope those aren't official government training videos. Plus in the second video half way through it shows the military might of the Israeli forces
which contained clips showing actual weapons systems and not just firing shells into the air.
Now to end this with another preview for the Iranians if they get to witness the awesome power of a grossly huge defense budget.
The Shahin is a copy of the U.S. Hawk missile(1960's technology), at least externally. But the Iranians have replaced the outdated dish homing radar
on the Hawk with a modern phase array homing radar on the Shahin. That's a huge improvement.
A little off-topic, Iran is known to have a zero-power heavy-water nuclear reactor supplied by China(either during 1980's or 1990's) for research
purpose/training nuclear engineers. A zero-power heavy-water nuclear reactor can be operated to produce weapons-grade plutonium. Don't be shock if
Iran have weapons-grade plutonium stash away without telling anybody.
