Two Can Play The Proxy War Game! - Lebanon-syria-hezbollah by rottennaija(m): 8:12pm On Feb 20

Iran is supplying its Khordad-15 air defense system to the Syrian and Lebanese armies. In 2020, Damascus and Tehran signed an agreement for the Khordad-15 systems, but it is not clear how many, or if any, were delivered to the Syrian Army. A report from November 2023 described the prospect of deliveries of Khordad-15 systems to Lebanon/Hezbollah and Syria as ‘particularly alarming’ to Israeli and American aircraft. A plausible report from 18 February 2024 indicates that the supply is moving forward, and confirms the inclusion of Lebanon. It stated that the Iranian army air defense force is currently training non-Iranians on the system.

In the past, Israel has struck Aleppo and Damascus airports to prevent IRGC deliveries of weapons and supplies to Hezbollah and the Syrian Army. However, since October 2023, Iranian cargo aircraft have been using Russia’s Humaymim/Khmeimim (Arabic حميميم; Russian: Хмеймим) Airbase (35° 24′ 7″ N, 35° 55′ 53″ E). A reliable source reports that that Iran-Russia-Hezbollah have a three-way agreement whereby Hezbollah will send its older weapons to Arab tribes of eastern Syria currently fighting ISIS, with some weapons being sent to Russia for use in Ukraine, while advanced Iranian weaponry will be delivered to Hezbollah through Russian airbases in Syria.

In brief: Khordad-15’s Najm-804B phased array radar can track targets at the maximum distance of 150 km and simultaneously engage up to six targets, viz., fighters, drones (UAV, UCAV), and cruise missiles. The radar system is located on one truck; the launch system is on a second vehicle. The launch vehicle has four canisters (2 x 2), loaded with Sayyad-2C missiles (range, 75 km) or Sayyad-3 missiles (range, 120–150 km). Video below.
