Israel’s new supersonic air-to-surface Rampage missiles, developed last year by Israel Military Industries (IMI) and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), were reportedly used earlier this month in an April 13 air strike against Iranian weapons facilities in the Syrian town of Masyaf.
The missiles were fired from Lebanese air space. According to a report published by UA Wire quoting a journalist from the German publication Telepolis, these new missiles cannot be intercepted by Russia’s advanced S-300 anti-missile defense system, which was provided to Syria last year.
In addition, the Rampage missile can destroy well-protected targets like bunkers because it has a double warhead that explodes sequentially, one after the other.
The projectile is 4.5 meters long, weighs 570 kg and is a GPS-controlled precision rocket with a range of 145 kilometers which is reported to be “super accurate.”
