Iran says they've developed new smart bomb


FARS news agency reports Islamic Republic successfully developed optically-guided one-ton bomb called 'Qader,' or 'strength'

The Iranian news agency FARS reported Tuesday that the Islamic Republic has developed a new optically-guided one-ton bomb it has named Qader, which mean strength in Farsi.



According to the regime's mouthpiece, the bomb is considered an upgraded version of the "Qased" bomb, also weighing a ton, which Iran unveiled a month ago. Qased can be deployed by Iran's F-4 and F-5 fighter jets.



FARS said the bomb, which is equipped with a smart guiding system, "is produced by few countries due to the advanced technical know-how required for its production and Iran is the last in the chain of countries which have succeeded in developing the technology".



Qased has been successfully tested by such fighter jets as F4 and F5, the report said, adding that "the Iranian defense ministry has recently launched several other production lines for manufacturing different military tools and arsenals".



Last September Iran showed off a longer-range missile in public for the first time and proclaimed a string of anti-Israel slogans, in a military parade held amid warnings of conflict with the West.



The missile - labeled Ghadr-1 (Power) - was said to be in development by Western experts, but its appearance at the annual military parade to mark the start of Iran's 1980-1988 war with Iraq was its first public showing.



The official announcer at the parade told reporters that the weapon had a range of 1,800 kilometers (1,100 miles), sufficient to put US bases in the Middle East and Iran's arch enemy Israel within reach.

Why do I get this mental image of a whole bunch of homing pigeons tied to a bomb?

...with no viable delivery vehicle.

Broke-ass F-14s and a hodge-podge of Soviet garbage don't count when your (probably) opponent has air superiority.

No, I think this is what they mean by optically guided:

About they only thing they could develop is a case of camel jockey itch.

They may have a smart bomb, we've got even smarter bombs, Harvard and MIT bombs.

According to the regime's mouthpiece, the bomb is considered an upgraded version of the "Qased" bomb, also weighing a ton, which Iran unveiled a month ago. Qased can be deployed by Iran's F-4 and F-5 fighter jets.


I wonder if they'll be able to guide themselves while still attached to flaming bits of F-4 and F-5 debris?

Is that the deadly Glock warhead? Aren't those banned by the Geneva Convention?

so..

one wonders.. are we in an arms race with iran? does iran think its in an arms race with us?

if so.. let em poor it on.. afterall one of the downfalls of the soviets was their inability to keep up with regan's mil buildup..

let em spend spend spend on their mil till their whole population is reduced to riding donkeys and eating goat cheese and drinking camel's milk... suckerin em into this for a while might actually achieve the goals we all want.. the eventually overturn of the mullahs.. afterall if it worked against the soviets.. it might work against the mullahs...

Is this kindof like that really shitty fighter that they said was so technologically advanced that it would make our aircraft practically useless against them?

If the bomb is so damn smart what the hell is it doing living in a crappy neighborhood like Iran?
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 2:07:40 PM EST
Let me see:

Bomb implies gravity delivery?

That means you have to take the bomb up from your base, cover some distance to the target and drop it, right?

How do you deliver it if you get your ass shot out of the sky BEFORE you can go anywhere?

"Smart" is a relative term.
