New Anti-Chopper Mines Unveiled

Islamic Revolution Guards Corps unveiled a new model of anti-helicopter mines during its recent military drills held in the eastern and central parts of the country. The mine named Saeqeh (thunderbolt) was successfully put to test during the four-day drills in Taybad County of the northeastern province of Khorasan Razavi, Press TV reported. Saeqeh has been designed and manufactured by Iranian experts with the aim of enhancing deterrence against potential airborne intrusion. The remote-controlled anti-helicopter mine, which contains several explosive projectiles, is planted on the ground to target intruding flying objects up to an altitude of 500 meters. Following the explosion of the mine’s main part, the small projectile bombs will then fly and explode in a vertical line, enabling them to destroy the target or inflict serious damage on it. The mine does not need separate radar systems to detect the intruding flying object. This is the third generation of Iran’s domestically-manufactured anti-chopper mines after J-AHM and Sayyad models.
