Iran Tests Fajr-5 Rocket with Thermobaric Warhead
Iran tested a homegrown Fajr-5 rocket equipped with a new thermobaric warhead. The rocket, which has already been delivered to the IRGC, has increased destructive power, with a 1.5 times greater blast radius and thermal effect than trinitrotoluene (TNT).
The new warhead’s lower sensitivity compared to TNT makes it a safer option. This new development is significant as the Fajr-5 rocket is known to have been delivered to Palestinian resistance groups, making it an important weapon in the ongoing conflicts in the region.
New Thermobaric Warhead Enhances Destructive Power
Compared to conventional warheads, the thermobaric explosive has a lower sensitivity than TNT, making it a safer option. The addition of the new warhead to the Fajr-5 rocket makes it an even more significant weapon in ongoing conflicts in the region.
The new thermobaric warhead’s function also makes the Fajr-5 rocket a suitable weapon for fighting against terrorist groups in mountainous and impassable areas. Terrorists often construct shelters and trenches in these regions, making them challenging to target with conventional weapons. With the new warhead’s increased destructive power, the Fajr-5 rocket becomes a potent weapon in such conflicts.
In conclusion, the successful testing of the Fajr-5 rocket with a thermobaric warhead by the IRGC Ground Force is a significant development. The new warhead’s increased destructive power and lower sensitivity than TNT make it a safer option in comparison with conventional warheads. The Fajr-5 rocket’s delivery to Palestinian resistance groups and its use in conflicts in the region make it an important weapon. With its extended range and the new warhead’s function, the rocket becomes even more potent in the fight against terrorist groups.
