Iran's secret underground plutonium plant encircled by missile sites.

Iran is pursuing a plutonium bomb too.

Satellite imagery shows that three surface-to-air missile sites and at least 50 batteries of anti-aircraft guns protect this research reactor and heavy water production plant. Only one missile battery guards the uranium enrichment facility at Fordow, by contrast.

Arak’s defences are carefully arrayed on the high ground surrounding the facility, with an outer ring of anti-aircraft guns deployed along possible attack routes and an inner circle placed around the installation’s perimeter.

The missile batteries are found on three sides of Arak, with one crowning the highest mountain above the facility.

Arak’s defences have to be strong because this plant is the most vulnerable of Iran’s sensitive nuclear sites. Unlike Fordow, which is buried inside a mountain, and Natanz, the other uranium enrichment plant which is largely underground, the entire complex at Arak appears to be above the surface.

Whether these defences would trouble the air forces of Iran’s most likely adversaries, Israel and the US, is another matter. the anti-aircraft missiles at Arak are obsolete models known as the Shahin.

Under the Shah, America sold Iran Hawk surface-to-air missiles, a 1960s design. Iran’s current rulers inherited this system after the Revolution of 1979. They upgraded the Hawk, modernising its radar guidance system and renaming it the Shahin. But this weapon is decades out of date.

As for the guns, they would be capable of filling the sky above the plant with a hail of lead, making a close range attack extremely perilous. But the Israeli and US air forces would not launch that kind of strike. Both have long range “stand-off” missiles, which would be fired hundreds of miles away from Arak and well beyond the reach of its defences.

Someone has put the video on YT

Just find it strange that only the Telegraph are reporting about this, and still wondering where they got the information from.

It seems that in another article on Telegraph, also posted 26th feb.:
Iran's 'Plan B' for a nuclear bomb
that the information came from a company named "The McKenzie Intelligence Group"
link to company

is a specialist intelligence provider that develops, maintains and leverages human source networks, open source data and commercial airborne collection capabilities

There my answer then.
So the paper bought these pictures from this company, and now they are going to use them in the extreme extent, for fear-mongering or to improve the holy bottomline?

And of course any sane nation will support and defend their sensitive sites against any jerks that threaten and declare bombing.

In this case Israehell, wouldn’t you..??

Big deal Wild Weasels will clear a air corridor with HARM missiles and cluster bombs.

I hope Iran takes out Israel and then gets took out its self hopefully in a non nuclear way the world would then be a slightly better place.

There won’t be any nuclear attack, those damn arm sellers want to sell their arms for profit nuclear attack is nonprofit..!

Attacking this place would be done with cruise missiles and other longer range weapons at first....
Only when the air defences are worn thin would they send in closer aerial bombing runs......
The stealth capabilities of the US worked well during the Iraq war....if Iran has no better detection systems then they should work well here too......

US is not going to attack Iran, if the Israeli chicken would like to do that on their own then be my guest, all those chicken are welcomed with huge missile hugs.

If I was playing this game of chess, knowing satelites were watching every move I do, I would fake the activity of one nuclear facility thats really not in production,and surround it with a bunch of defense missles, while the nuclear facility with the least amount of defense is in full production!

Good for them.
They gotta keep Amerisrael's hands off it somehow.

Until they decide to do as they preach, they have no right telling others what to do.

Either ban nukes worldwide....meaning NOBODY gets to keep them.
Or let Iran develop nukes.

My two cents.

Exactly. Please paint us with your radars. No seriously, please turn them on, lol.

The wild weasels will not be back on the ground and we will be having our way with the Iranian Guard and all those old kooks with the robes and funny looking hands.

Yeah that would work real good, get it all set up like that so a 12 yr old in a f4 can come in and blow you down. Good call.

They are having enough of a tough time keeping infidels and interlopers from jacking in with those fancy memory sticks with those cool codes on em.

What a joke.
