Design

The Misagh-2 features a newly developed dual-band passive IR seeker with strong resistance to heat flares dispensed by the target and solar/ground heat, thus improving the missile’s performance in day/night, all-weather conditions.

Missile
The missile itself weighs 11.32 kg at launch, the warhead 1.42 kg and the complete system 18 kg in the firing position.
Operations
The Misagh-2 can engage approaching targets out to 6 km and receding targets out to 5.2 km. The maximum effective altitude against jet fighters is about 2.5 km and helicopters and subsonic aircraft about 3.5 km. Misagh-2 features a newly developed dual-band passive IR seeker with strong resistance to heat flares dispensed by the target and solar/ground heat, thus improving the missile’s performance in day/night, all-weather conditions in electronic warfare conditions.
Combat use
The Misagh-2 is a new generation of portable anti-aircraft missile weapon system. Its main mission is to strike tactical targets such as fighters, attackers and armed helicopters at low and very low altitude . It can also supply effective air defense for military bases, political and industrial centers, and other important facilities. This weapon system is characterized not only by portability, high maneuverability, easy operation and fire-and-forget homing of the traditional portable anti-aircraft missile system, but also by advanced detective technology, guidance control technology and new power system. Because of this, further detective distance and larger attacking area are achieved. The most important is that the latest anti-infrared interference technology is adopted so that the missile can effectively identify the target signals from strong man-made and complicated environmental interference signals and get rid of the interference signals effectively.
