Analysis of Iran’s AA defenses

    Planeman has done an analysis on Iran’s air defenses. I recently mentioned his NKorean analysis. The article includes many original drawings and lots of diagrams.

    It is interesting how much reliance is still placed on manned guns. I was under the impression that most of the world had moved to surface to air missile systems. It is also interesting to note the ease at which the Israelis bypassed the new Syrian radar systems that were purchased from Russia.

    Well worth a read.
