Iran unveils kit to turn artillery rockets into guided missiles – report
By News Desk -2019-10-080



Iran unveiled a number of new armaments last week, including a light armored personnel carrier, a network-connected robot and a conversion kit which can turn artillery rockets into precision-guided missiles, a Jane’s report says.

The conversion kit, called the ‘Labeik’, was presented in an event attended by General Mohammad Hossein Dadras, deputy commander of the regular military and Brigadier General Kioumars Heidar, the ground forces commander, the report says.

According to Jane’s, the Labeik appears to be compatible with Iran’s 610mm Zelzal heavy artillery rocket. The kit is similar to a system used in the Fateh-110 family, and is attached between the rocket’s warhead and engine.

“There is nothing new in the conversion itself, they have been doing it for years, and they already showed conversion kits for the Fatah 110 family of missiles,” says Uzi Rubin, one of the pioneers of Israel’s earliest attempts at missile defense, according to The Times of Israel. “What’s new here are the aerodynamics of the winglets — very unique, unseen in Iran to date and unseen in any other country. Going to indigenous design rather than copying others indicates self-confidence. The purpose of the new and unique aerodynamics is probably to increase the maneuverability of the converted rockets.”

Other presented systems were the ‘Rouintan’ armored vehicle – a four-wheeled double-cab personnel carrier armed with a heavy machine-gun and featuring a pickup-like cargo compartment in the back. According to Jane’s, the vehicle was shown resisting not only 12.7mm machine-gun rounds, but also a high energy anti-tank (HEAT) projectile. Interior photos show a dashboard similar to a Toyota Land Cruiser 70, but the Jane’s report notes that the dashboard may be a domestic copy produced for other Iranian military vehicles.

The third specimen is the ‘Heider-1’, a six-wheeled robot, which, judging by photos provided by the Irna news agency, is a versatile unmanned platform which can carry loads or be rigged with a remotely-fired assault rifle. Described by Defense World as “network-oriented,” the robot reportedly can detect objects and obstacles and rotate 360 degrees while standing in place.

New armaments, including a new surveillance drone and a mobile jamming device, were reportedly officially delivered to Iranian military forces during the event which took place last week.

Iran displays guidance upgrade for artillery rockets

The Iranian Army unveiled what appeared to be a new guidance upgrade called the Labeik that converts existing artillery rockets into surface-to-surface missiles on 3 October.

Several Labeik units were displayed in an event attended by General Mohammad Hossein Dadras, the deputy commander of the regular military, and Brigadier General Kioumars Heidar, the commander of its ground forces.

The system looked similar to the guidance units used with the Fateh-110 family of solid-propellent missiles, although its four triangular control surfaces were inverted. As with the Fateh-110 family, these would be attached between the rocket motor and warhead to steer the projectile. They appeared to be compatible with the 610 mm diameter of the Zelzal heavy artillery rocket.

Iranian television showed footage of what was presented as the Labeik being tested, although one of the projectiles seen being launched appeared to be a member of the Fateh-110 family, probably a Hormuz anti-radiation variant.

The Labeik was one of several developments unveiled during the event, the others being the Rouin-Tan light armoured vehicle, the Heider-1 unmanned ground vehicle, the Farpod hand-launched unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), and a mobile jamming system.

The Rouin-Tan that was displayed had a double-cab, pick-up configuration. An interior shot showed the dashboard of a Toyota Land Cruiser 70, but this might be a local copy produced for Iran's Aras tactical vehicle.

Iranian television aired footage that appeared to show the composite armour used to protect the vehicle being successfully tested against 12.7 mm rounds and a high-explosive anti-tank round projectile.

What's wrong with Artesh people, why are they never qualified in making something, far less when compared to the IRGC.

Rouintan APC does not have protection personnel who operate the main rifle above and why it should be pickup (if so why are armored if the personnel are behind the pickup, what's the difference with a Toyota pickup car).

Heidar-1 Suicide Robot is too small and only carries AK weapons, which is inferior when compared to artificial IRGCs which are larger and capable of carrying heavy weapons of 12.5 mm caliber and also have more sophisticated optics.

what's wrong is that you're comparing Artresh with IRGC, Apples and Oranges.
