Iranian Missiles: Correction
Yesterday, DID ran a story covering the Iranian purchase of SA-15 missile systems from Russia. The above photo ran as a picture of the SA-15 launcher, and had been so featured at Warfare.RU.
In response Karol Ulc writes in from Poland to note that the above is actually a picture of a Russian Pantsyr anti-aircraft system (GlobalSecurity.org also refers to it as an SA-19), mounted on a Kamaz truck. He adds that the SA-15’s missiles are vertically launched from within the same vehicle that carries the two radars. Further research confirms that he is entirely correct on all counts. DID regrets the error.
