Since many years, Iran has developed many new air defense systems using local-made weapons. According to a video released on YouTube, in November 2018, this new anti-aircraft system is dubbed “Seraj Sadegh 10” and was already tested by the Iranian armed forces.
The new Iranian-made anti-aircraft mobile weapon system is based on a new 6×6 military truck vehicle with the crew cabin at the front, a command and control cabin in the middle and the weapon system at the rear of the chassis.
The crew from inside of the command and control cabin can detect and tracks targets with the radar and while developing a local air picture, evaluates threats and assigns targets to the weapon system.
The Seraj Sadegh 10 anti-aircraft weapon system consists of an Iranian version of the Swiss Oerlikon 35 mm twin cannon which is also used for the anti-aircraft towed gun Samavat and the Seraj, an enhanced version of the Samavat equipped with radar and a new optical target acquisition system, designed to destroy a wide range of aerial targets in particularly drones and other small flying threats.
The 35mm Oerlikon is a short-range air defense system which has a maximum range of 4 km and can fire at a rate of 1,100 rounds per minute. It can hit cruise missiles automatically and UAVs at low altitudes.
