Owerview[eedit | eedit soorce]

The Ghassed wis designed in accordance with the needs of the Iranian Air Force tae strategic arsenals an bombs. Once Ghassed is deployed, Iranian fighter jets can destroy enemy targets bi this heich-precision bomb without coming intae the range of enemy fire. The Ghassed is a pouered air-tae-surface missile designed for strikes at lang range against various targets. It is a rocket-boostit version o the MK-84 bomb, with the rocket motor increasin the launch range and so gieving the launch aircraft protection frae whatever defences mey protect the target. Ghassed can be deployed bi Iran's F-4 and F-5 fechter jets.

A TV/IR-guidit bomb haes aither a conventional televeesion video camera or an infrareid camera (for nicht vision) moontit tae its nose. In remote-operation mode, the controller relays information through radio signals tae a human operator, who is uisually on buird the bomber plane. The remote operator relays commands tae the control seestem tae steer the bomb through the air—the bomb acts something like a remote-control plane. In this mode, the operator mey launch the bomb without a specific target and sicht, and then pick up the target frae the video as the bomb gets closer tae the grund.[1]Template:Unreliable source?
