Iran has created a sensation in the world by introducing two hypersonic missiles in one year. Fateh-1 in June 2023 and now Fateh-2. Only Iran’s claims have come forward regarding both the missiles. Iran has not yet made them a part of its army. The most talked about thing is Fateh-2. It has been claimed that it can penetrate even the most advanced anti-ballistic missile systems of America and Israel.
Recently, Iran presented it in the exhibition of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force in Tehran. Know how powerful it is.
Will attack in a range of 1400 kilometers
Iran claims that no one in the world has its missile Fatah-2. Only Iran knows what the truth is, but if the claims are to be believed then the world seems ready to move in a different destructive direction. It can also penetrate the advanced anti-ballistic missile systems of America and Israel. It can hit up to a range of 1400 kilometers.
Kills at a speed of 5.1 KM per second
It can attack at a speed of 5.1 kilometers per second. When Fatah-2 was presented, Iran’s supreme leader Khomeini himself came forward. He spoke very little on the missile program and more on the Israel-Hamas war. Israel was declared defeated. Pleaded guilty to war.
Can destroy Israel in 7 minutes
According to Al Jazeera, Russia, China and America have this system but America is still a little behind China-Russia in this matter. During the demonstration, Iran has responded to the doubts of the Western countries in such a way that when it is used, all the doubts will turn into trust.
Quoting Iranian security officials, Al Jazeera has said that this new weapon is capable of hitting targets in Israel in 7 minutes.
What is the meaning of hypersonic missile?
These are missiles that can move at five times the speed of sound. This means that its speed can be more than 1.7 kilometers per second or 6174 kilometers per hour, up to 24700 kilometers per hour.
This also means that it will not be able to be caught by radar or any defense armor. It is difficult to locate them. Radars cannot detect them until they come very close to the ground and by the time they give a signal they will have done their job.

In such a situation, it will not be easy for any country to protect itself from a hypersonic missile attack. Its speed separates it from ballistic missiles. Takes you forward. Their aim will be accurate. These missiles will be more capable than ballistic missiles in hitting the target. Hypersonic guide vehicle has been used in it, which is going to prove helpful in increasing the speed.
Hypersonic is one of the flight speeds. Flight is referred to in four different ways. Sub sonic, transonic, super sonic and hyper sonic. These are all different measures of speed.
- The speed of sound at sea level is 1236 kilometers per hour.
- The speed of sound in water is 1500 meters per second, whereas in clear water the same speed is 1436 meters per second.
- The speed of sound in steel is 5148 meters per second.
- The speed of sound in vacuum is zero.
