Israel used missile called “The Rampage” in attack against Iran

This missile, 4.7 meters long, has the ability to reach supersonic speeds, which significantly complicates its detection and interception by defense systems such as the Iron Dome.

The missile used in the alleged Israeli attack on a military base near the Iranian city of Isfahan was a locally made air-to-ground projectile known as The Rampage, according to Hebrew media reports.

The Kan network revealed that photographs were used to identify The Rampage, and their analyses coincided with the scale of destruction observed at the impact site.

This missile, 4.7 meters long, has the ability to reach supersonic speeds, which significantly complicates its detection and interception by defense systems such as the Iron Dome.

Although Israel has not issued official statements about the incident, Iran has downplayed the event, stating that only three drones and no missiles were involved in the Isfahan attack.

Features and capabilities of The Rampage missile

The Rampage, weighing more than 500 kilograms and officially presented in 2018, was designed specifically to penetrate and destroy fortified infrastructure, such as bunkers, according to statements by its developers, Israel Military Industries Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries.

A subsequent report by The New York Times suggests that the same type of missile was used in an attack against Iranian air defenses in the vicinity of the Natanz nuclear complex, evidencing its ability to evade Iranian radars.

According to officials, the operation was meticulously designed to make Iran reconsider any plans for direct retaliation against Israel.
