Everyone is talking about Hezbollah's missile capabilities. Here's the definitive report on their arsenal.
Iran sends military supplies to Lebanon by air via the intermediary of the "al-Quds Force". These supplies pass through the Damascus International Airport, and constitute Hezbollah's near-exclusive arsenal for terrorist attacks against Israel. The Iranians are aware of this fact, and continue to provide military assistance, with the blessing of Syria.
In the course of the past few years, Hezbollah has been supplied, mainly via air shipments, with large quantities of high-quality arms, including upgraded anti-tank missiles, Katyusha rockets, anti-aircraft cannons and missiles of various ranges, SA-7 and SA-14 shoulder missiles, equipment and arms for small-scale maritime warfare, motorized gliders, and even long-range land-to-land missiles of types Fajr-3 and Fajr-5 (with a 75 km range). No other terrorist organization worldwide is known to enjoy a massive, well-coordinated and ongoing supply of such high-quality arms.
This photo below left is of the Fajr-5 long range missile. It is launched from a mobile platform and reportedly has a range of 70 kilometers. The missile was constructed by the Iranians, reportedly with help from North Korea and China. Like the Katyusha rocket and the Scud missile, however, at the limit of its range it is accurate only within a radius of around one kilometer. It is fired from a 333 mm multiple rocket launcher such as the one pictured below right.
The photo appearing below is of the Fajr-3 long range rocket. It is a 5.2-meter long, 240 mm-caliber artillery rocket with an estimated range of 43 kilometres. It weighs 407 kilograms, and carries a 90 kilogram warhead. Production in North Korea and/or Iran probably started in 1991, or as early as March 1990. Fajr-3 has the same caliber, range and warhead weight as three known North Korean systems. It is fired from a 20mm multi-rocket launcher, also pictured below.
The photos below are of the Zelzal missile. They are short-range, road-mobile, solid-propellant systems. The Zelzal missiles are most likely unguided and have ranges varying from 150 to 250 km and carry 400-600 kg payloads. Take note of who is watching the Zelzal in a military parade... yep, that's Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad...
Below we see the Nazeat rockets (455 mm diameter). These are short-range, road-mobile, solid-propellant systems, most likely unguided, and have a range of 140 km and carry 230 kg payload.
While we were unable to secure artwork of the Falaq-1 and Falaq-2, we can tell you the following. The Falaq-1 is a 240 mm-diameter rocket with a maximum range of 10 km. It weights 111 kg and carries a 50 kg explosives warhead. The Falaq-2 is a 333 mm-diameter rocket. It weights 255 kg and with 120 kg warhead that holds 60 kg of explosives.
Below we have the C-802 anti-ship cruise missile. This monster can be fired sea-to-sea or coast-to-sea, weights 715 kg and has a range of 120 km.
Next, we have the AT3s and Raad-T. These are second generation wire-guided anti-tank missile systems with a range of 400-3,000 meters. Operationally this weapon system is rather simple with a high level of safety for the shooter since he can lie on the ground behind the guidance system and there are some distance between the shooter and the launching system. We apologize, but again, no artwork.
Finally we have the Mirsad-1 UAV. That's right, Hezbollah has a UAV in their aresenal. It has an altitute of 2 km, range of 240 km and can travel at a speed of 120 km/hr. It carries both surveillance equipment and explosives. That's an enhanced image of the UAV as captured by a commercial television camera.
