    No. Because a saturation attack is basically what happened last night but for weeks on end, the winner is the person who doesn't run out of missiles.

      Yes. because if you need to fire munitions in the triple digits with the hopes that a single digit of them will pass through, you are better off investing that money in to other offensive capabilities.

        If your missiles are cheaper the interceptors and you think you can make more missiles than the other guy can make interceptors then you do what Iran did. Once you achieve degradation you bring out your "good" stuff so you can start degrading other things.

          Except "cheaper" is relative.
          A missile interceptor may be more expensive than the missile, but the intercepting nation may not feel it's cost as much as the attacker nation.

        If both have stockpiles and produce missiles, the one with the most in the end stops being intercepted and starts being hit by every single one that comes after.
        What part of saturation do you not understand, you just keep going till they have none left as long as your production is higher.
        This even includes local saturation, you cannot have infinite missiles all around the country after all, so you can temporarily start getting through as long as you focus one area of attack.
        This has always been how modern war works with missiles and men.

      Thats not saturation attack, you are describing attrition warfare.
      Saturation attack is launching enough missiles at the same time (or at least in very short order) so countermeasures that are ready to use cannot stop them all .

      To make it simpler to understand If you have 100 missiles and your enemy has 10 launchers (and has 90 sam missiles for them in storage) , launching 5 missiles day by day until enemy runs out of sams is not a saturation attack.
      Saturation attack is launching 15 missiles at one time.

        I think its a meaningless distinction because saturation by overwhelming their GBADS or saturation via attrition are both premised on you firing a shitload of missiles. Both rely on you having more missiles than they have interceptors.

          if one can expect a ratio of 30:1 in interceptions vs penetrations, than the numbers of munitions required for a sustained campaign is ungodly, and considering that cruise missiles and ballistic missiles can only be so cheap, the costs begin to stack up fast.

          The main take away is that once modern western layered defenses are primed, their saturation point is absurdly high, and if your plan was to saturate say....a carrier battle group with such an attack, thats very bad news.

          Do you think it would have gone any better for them if they tried to drop bombs or drive in tanks?

          NO YOU STUPID FRICK.
          If an S-300 battery has 24 interceptors in TELs and I fire enough missiles to force them to either not engage due to concerns about running out of interceptors, or just run out of interceptors, that battery is now completely useless until it reloads. If I just bring it to 50% every day for a few weeks, it'll still be 100% capable every time I go to attack it.

        Isn't attacking cheaper than defending?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Yes. because if you need to fire munitions in the triple digits with the hopes that a single digit of them will pass through, you are better off investing that money in to other offensive capabilities.

      Both of these anons are correct.
      It's a number game : below a certain volume of fire, the interception will neutralize a large percentage of the projectiles.
      Above that volume, every additional projectile will get through.
      You can try the saturation strike, which aims at going above the maximum effective interception volume of the defender. It is costly compared to the results and, unless you manage to knock out some of the interception batteries themselves or deliver such a high volume that you level the whole place, it won't achieve anything lasting. So if you do that, it's either that you go nuclear, you don't mean to do other strikes or don't have other options.
      Attrition strikes (plural) aim at depleting the stock of interceptors over time. It doesn't try to overwhelm the defense : it plays on probabilities, hoping a projectile will get lucky but that ain't the main aim, which is both to have the defender expand more ammunition that you are sending projectiles and (in option but a much appreciated improvement on the long term) reveal the position of its interception batteries so a second targeted strike can neutralize them permanently.
      Israel has the advantage that it has a very limited areas to protect so a lot of interceptors are sharing the same areas, raising the maximum effective interception volume of each area. It also enjoy allies which increase the area over which interception can take place, which further increase the minimum amount of projectiles needed to go through.

          Anon, I understand you're probably a chud that views every conflict and event in isolation from one another(in this, a globally connected world) but Putin has actually been warming relations with Iran since both his and Israel's war began, so he is inclined to support Iran to keep that goodwill building. It definitely does effect both of the wars. It may not effect it in the battlefield sense, but it does effect it politically, and that could transition(lol) quickly to it affecting the battlefield(i.e Putin is forced to send aid to Iran, taking away munitions from the Ukrainian frontlines; I'm tired and I don't feel like thinking for you anymore on this subject so I'll leave that one possibility there.

        I think the message was well received six months ago already :
        The fricking houtis targeted Israel with ballistic missiles last year and they are both further away and supplied by Iran.
        So there was never any doubt that Iran had the capacity to fire at Tel-Aviv.
        If that was the message, firing a single missile would have proven the same.

        If the message was "we can hurt you", then it failed.

But just because the U.S. has been abandoning security for years now did NOT mean Iran would suddenly be okay with launching a serious attack against a country much stronger than them who has is also close allies with the world’s sole superpower. Furthermore Iran has proven itself time and again to be a pest but when push comes to shove they ALWAYS do the bare face-saving minimum, plainly hoping to avoid any serious escalation. Iran is basically helpless against Israel and the US and they clearly know it.

            Not really. You just artificially increase the value of the currency as the US inflation becomes the largest export. Then over time you watch all your industries move elsewhere as they become non-competitive. That's why China doesn't promote the Yuan to become the global reserve currency, because they know it's a deathspiral for domestic industry. USA no longer has the capacity to produce the quantities needed for war and its the end result of what you're gloating about.

          Both China and Russia are selling to Iran at a premium price whenever they can get away with it.
          And it goes the other way for Iran selling to Russia.
          China is the only clear winner in this situation. And in typical bugman fashion, instead of using the situation to forge strong alliances, they use it to milk their "partners" dry.
          It isn't a mistake but it means that this partnership will only last as long as the partners have no other choices.

    No, because it was basically for show and for sending a message. Rallying domestic support behind the regime to save face via strongman posturing, making Israel spend money and time intercepting them, and sending a message that they will respond to direct attacks with direct force while at the same time giving Israel little to actually respond to and sowing discord on an already war-weary population. It also serves to gather intelligence on their defensive capabilities.

    Iran doesn't truly want a war with Israel, they can't afford it when there are already protests against the regime. At the same time they had to throw the hardliners a bone.

    I would be hesitant to thump my chest about this. While Israeli AD is undoubtedly very good, Iran telegraphed the attack for days, gave notification that the drones were in the air many hours before they struck, and didn't mass their drones and missiles on any one target specifically. They also stated before the attack even began that they would not be doing any more attacks. If they had actually wanted to do significant damage, they would be massing waves of drones on a specific targets and coordinating rapid missile strikes to arrive at the same time while AD is preoccupied with the drones, and also coordinating with their proxies to launch short ranged attacks that are much harder to intercept. As it was, it's basically just posturing.

      Wouldn't have mattered. Israel is small enough that their AD systems can cover the entire country with ease.
      >gave notification that the drones were in the air
      Them telegraphing the attack ahead of time was deescalatory but wouldn't have made a difference. There's so much ISR around, Israel and other countries would have had hours to prepare even in a "surprise".
      >Largest combined wave of PGMs in recent history
      >"Just posturing"
      They didn't want escalation beyond their attack, but they very much wanted to do at least some damage with it to send a message, and they failed.
      A significant part of that is likely them losing half their ballistic missiles en route to shitty Iranian engineering.

                Let's review this :

                has always been a interested partner playing "hard to get" so it would get tons of shit. It is still part of NATO and letting the USA use its territory to bomb Syria and Iraq.

                >Iraq
                Let the USA have two airbases, even begged the USA to come back in force in 2014 and has only asked last month to start talking about the US forces leaving in a few years maybe. US was still bombing Iran-backed rebels there two months ago with the approval of the governement.

                >Syria
                Its official governement is barely holding to 50% of the territory and, though hostile to the USA, it cannot help to have US camps on its territory while being bombed in total impunity by both Israel and the USA.

                >Lebanon
                Shithole ruled by Iran-backed Hezbollah with support from Syria's troops.
                Get bombed at will by Israel without ever managing to stop it.

            we all just witnessed choreographed realpolitik done with missiles and drones. Iran signaled their attack for nearly 2 weeks, and allowed repositioning of assets to thwart the attack. US allowed it to go forward knowing they can intercept it. The only rogue element in all this is Israel's war cabinet trying to provoke a wider war and distract from their ... whatever you want to call their 6 months in a strip of land called Gaza.

      They can’t. I don’t think you appreciate how corrupt Iran is; nations are not RTS factions, and corruption is going to be a huge drag on any major industrial activity there. Even if the leadership ordered a national initiative to build a huge fleet of missiles various levels of corruption all the way down the chain of command will severely limit the number of functional missiles which appear, and further limit their actual readiness. Corruption isn’t a defect it’s a feature in sustaining a stable political system in a low-IQ populace which is why it’s the norm in the world generally outside of a handful of high-IQ middle-class democracies.

        You could say the same thing about Russia, and they are massively outproducing the US in artillery shells and missiles, and certainly outproducing us in terms of the interceptors we can afford to supply.

                In theory, yes : neutralizing an airfield is useful to temporarily limit the enemy's air capacity, which can help your own operations.

                But it isn't the case here :
                The airfield wasn't neutralized.
                And even if it was, since Iran didn't capitalized with further operations, it was a pointless strike from a tactical, operational and strategical point.

        And? A truly embarrassing showing. Out of an estimated 150 ish missiles launched only half actually made it to Israel. 7ish actually making it to the ground, most landing nowhere special. The "major" damage is a shrapnel to a c130. Letting aside the hundreds of drones and cruise missiles, of course.

                Targets are usually something valuable, from this statement we could also conclude nothing valuable got hit.

                You're reaching for a life line and desperately so. From what we've seen so far, hundreds of missiles with almost no damage. Maybe more information will be revealed.

      The price of a failed interception isn't the cost of the missile, it's the cost of whatever the weapon was targeting. In the case of an airfield (or a housing complex..) that's a pretty substantial savings. Which is also why modern ADS systems ignore missiles that will be hitting a sand dune or a two-lane dirt road.

        This is cope reasoning that works right up until you run out of defensive missiles because they were more expensive/complex to manufacture than the attacking missiles. And when the defensive missile is a $400K Sidewinder/IRIS-T or a $1 million AMRAAM and the attacking missile is a $20K drone propelled with a two stroke engine and guided by cell phone components, it doesnt take long time until your defensive strategy fails, as a sufficient volume of incoming low end drones will drain your high end defensive setup dry.

            Ain't even about the price tag in the end :
            Even if the drones costed 1 $US each to make, that wouldn't matter if Iran can only produce a few hundred per months while its targets can produce as much interceptors.

            If Iran starts sending waves of hundreds of drones on a monthly basis, they'll quickly face something else than state-of-the-art missiles.

          So the answer is to intercept, and then retaliate with multiple billions in property damage to your enemy/them having to also spend good money on intercepting. Got it. The israelites are probably already planning something along those lines so we'll see I guess.

      Define "hits".
      Was it a bright flash over the horizon ? If yes, sure, there were five projectiles that hit the ground somewhere. Whether the projectiles did so in one piece and on their intended target is another story.
      Please note that for NATO, improvement in interception technology isn't about hitting the target anymore : it got to a point where increasing the precision on that front is becoming very difficult and not cost-effective.
      It is now about calculating as narrowly as possible and as early as possible where the missile is going to hit, so it can be decided if an interception is needed at all :
      Why waste interceptor against something that will most probably hit a patch of sand ?

          I know neither what Israel included as "intercepted" nor the exact numbers involved for each category.
          Though really, if the point is to say "achtually, it wasn't 99% but 95% so it's a lie", I guess you are right but that doesn't change much, unless we are talking future strikes in the five digits missiles.

        Air defense systems cannot calculate the intended target and trajectory of munitions that can maneuver or change their original targets mid-flight. That's why cruise missiles and drones are a huge problem especially when launched in the form of a barrage.

        The Iron Dome can probably determine where a tiny bottle rocket launched from Gaza or Southern Lebanon is going to land because it doesn't glide and will stop propelling itself way before it hits it intended target. Anything that doesn't fit that profile is a huge problem for any kind of air defense.

          >Air defense systems cannot calculate the intended target and trajectory of munitions that can maneuver or change their original targets mid-flight.
          If you know the point of take off, speed, altitude, endurance and manoeuvrability of a given flying object, you can calculate in real time the potential range of said object.
          From there, as time elapse and the cone of reachable area become smaller, targets become fewer and fewer.
          The faster a projectile, the further range it has in its current trajectory.
          The more manoeuvrability it has, the larger the angle at which it can change its trajectory or altitude without losing a large portion of its speed or endurance.
          If it loses speed, it will need to expand endurance to regain it.
          If it doesn't regain speed, then it will take longer for it to reach its target, increasing interception window.
          Ect...

          USA has been doing that at least since the 90s and has gotten better at it as time went by.
          It doesn't prevent mistakes to happen but it reduces the amount of interceptors wasted on projectiles that would not have reach a juicy target.

          It incercepted Iranian ballistic missiles at terminal velocity going down at mach 7. Sure it could not intercept a real ballistic missile, say something like a Peacekeeper which reaches like mach 20 at terminal stage, but still it's a significant feat for a defensive system

            All ballistic missiles are very fast when they start coming down after reaching zenith. It's this very high speed that also makes it impossible for them to maneuver which makes their intended target easily calculable by radars. This concept goes back to WW2. All ballistic missiles regardless of size do this.

            Now, what if a missile coasts at a height of 50 meters off the ground, flew in different directions and did maneuvers to obscure their intended target during flight, and could change targets mid course? That's what Ukraine is dealing with right now and it's what the Iranians launched at Israel. It's quite hard to shoot them down from what I've read. Drones and cruise missiles have a very similar flight profile with drones being much cheaper and modular.

    Please keep in mind most of /k/ is extremely unintelligent and poorly informed about everything in the world which is why the consensus on this board is almost always wrong. For example, the Ukraine War.

    What we know is 6 countries spent $1.1b in AA to shoot down around $40m-$50m of Iranian munitions. These were mostly Iran's worst, outdated stuff like liquid state ballistic missiles. A handful of newer solid state ballistics used.

    It's not an economic exchange for the west. Iran broke layered defence and hit all 3 targets. They have tens of thousands of these munitions stashed around the country. This isn't economically viable to defend from. If was IRGC that did the attack, completely separate from the Iranian army. IRGC doesn't have any high value targets to strike, everything is underground like the Houthis so they won't be bombed into submission either.

    My prediction is Israel cucks and bombs Iran's proxies.

            I hear this a lot but to be honest, Russia only did that because its practical. They have guns that can fire those North Korean rounds. North Koreans won't make the rounds very expensive because no one else will buy them. And the Russians can use those rounds to supplement their current ammo expenditure while churning out more from their own factories so by the time that the many North Korean shells run out, you've got plenty of your own locally produced shells stored for a rainy day and your production rate can sustain your war effort without having to buy from foreigners again.

            This is an artillery war. Both sides are going to do absolutely whatever they need to do to get ammo. And since Ukraine won't get long range missiles to hit those artillery shell factories in Russia because of "muh escalayshun", they're kinda fricked.

                It'd be stupid for Israel to do it. Iran has only one thing worth bombing and that's oil infrastructure. Anyone else is a complete waste of their time.
                IRGC is decentralized in command and logistics, everything of value is underground. There aren't any high profile targets related to IRGC to go for.
                IRGC also deliberately fired all their missiles and drones from different parts of core Iran likely to encourage any retaliation to those parts of Iran. Consequence would be to rally the population for the cause. In 1 exchange the nation will rally behind the government and the regime becomes legitimized among the muslim world - delegitimizing Israeli friendly Arab governments in the process such as Jordan, Egypt, Morocco and Saudi.

                There are variables in this that USA/Israel is fricking awful at understanding and its why the War on Terror was such an abysmal failure ending with Iran taking over the region. Because Iran knows what it is doing, and Israel does not.

                It took $1.1b in munitions and 6 nations to defend against 90% of Iran's worst 300 munitions. Only a handful of solid state ballistics used and those hit 3 bases. You're an A grade moron if you think they're going to be able to defend against thousands of solid state fuel ballistics with actual payloads on them.

                It's not really a hypothetical worth talking. At this point there are nuclear weapons involved. But both Iran and Hezbollah have the conventional capacity to turn Tel Aviv into a pile of rubble. My point was Iran has enough munitions to deplete Israel of AA and destroy their bases. IRGC doesn't really have high value targets for Israel to retaliate against, they will resort to economic targets instead like they always do.

                also the idea that both iran and hezbollah can turn tel aviv into rubble is laughable. iran can only fire so many missiles before israel decides to turn their storage and military sites into rubble (which would happen if large scale fighting happened). and hezbollah doesn't even have enough pgms

                their proxies don't have the number to "turn tel aviv into rubble". i mean look at yemen they've been firing cruise and ballistic missiles at israel for months and they haven't even destroyed a random sidewalk.

                as for iran's air defense. it's pretty shitty compared to israel and will be penetrated very easily by low flying cruise missiles and supersonic bombs. israel could even destroy iran's AD at some parts of the country if they wanted. see Syria

            But nobody's going to do anything serious against Israel.
            And the reason is exactly because, as much as we are not confortable with what they do in Gaza, we know that they are the only stable and reliable government in the region.

              They're essentially a dictatorship since Netanyahu has been the leader for like 20 years. They bombed a fricking consulate in Syria which is what to led to this Iranian attack. They've been flying all over the Middle East and striking all their neighbors willy nilly and wonder why they're hated.

              Why do we even need to support them? Why do we need a "stable and reliable government in the region"? We actually could easily shake hands with the Arabs if we stopped fricking with them. Let me tell ya, Iran will not go down unless there is a boots on the ground full on invasion with a regime change and a new government installed with heavy, and I mean HEAVY, support from the West. There'd need to be pogroms of people who support the old guard and hatred towards the West and Israel that would lock up/kill millions. It's a densely populated and mountainous country. There's 80% of the worlds oil flowing just a few feet away. It's just not possible.

      are they gonna be guided? guidence is what makes them expensive not the warheads. so that price offset might not be that huge. and if they aren't guided then they aren't of much use because you can usually tell where a missile will land by tracing its trajectory and whehter to intercept it or not. like iron dome does

          meh. it depends on the math. warheads are usually less than 20% of weight of ballistic missiles. the cost is even far less than that compared to the rest of the system. it's possible that you might get diminish returns. it's probabbly not worth it. unless we're talking about guided decoys like MALD but even those are kinda of expensive

    you can still use the cheaper drones and missiles first to get the enemy to expend ammunitions, then launch a second salvo with better equipment as the enemy is busy replenishing his launchers.
    another option would be to bait the enemy into activating all their radar defenses and aircraft and ambush them with your own antiradiation missiles and interceptors.
    in the case of iran, they are too poor and stupid to do either, sadly.

    A standard /k/ope is to compare the cost of the cheap drone with the cost of the target to justify the expenditure of munitions many times the value of said drone. That’s incorrect; no matter how you shake it spending 10-100x the amount on intercepting vs a given threat is an economic net loss. You are trading expensive missiles with cheap drones, not missiles with airbase control towers. You are merely losing LESS if you substitute the target with an expensive missile.

    Of course, yes, the US prints money so costs at the level of a few billion here and there just disappear into the forever-debt. Because as long as the US makes interest payments when due nobody cares about how much the debt level is. But stop pretending that it’s not a hideously bad tradeoff.

      Black person, I will set your house on fire with $15 worth of accelerant and matches and watch you screech about how you don't want to waste your $25 fire extinguiser.

      it's funny because this argument has been made a lot since 2011 when the iron dome began operating. yet iron dome interceptors haven't run out in any conflict as far as i remember. they just keep shooting rockets down

    its claimed that allies shot down significant share of those - that means that for Israel itself this was too much to handle alone

    "a massive ballistic missile attack was carried out"
    "a massive ballistic missile attack was succesfuly defended against"
    sounds super grandiloquent but they were shitty mach 7 missiles with conventional payload and limited range. The way they are repeating it everywhere makes it sounds like we were close to a nuclear war. and in this case only one side actually has nukes.

      The best way to understand Israel right now is post 9/11 America.
