British Navy captured Iranian copy of Kornet ATGM in international waters – Reuters

They specify that during the patrol in international waters, a suspicious vessel was noticed. The frigate HMS Lancaster gave chase. After intercepting it, the Marines boarded and searched it.

As a result, “Iranian versions of the Russian 9M133 Kornet anti-tank guided missiles”, known in Iran as Dehlaviyeh, and medium-range ballistic missile components were discovered.

It is the third ship with a shipment of weapons captured by the British Navy in a year.

The Dehlaviyeh (Dehlaviye) anti-tank missile system is an Iranian copy of the Russian Kornet ATGM. It has similar characteristics, but is not equipped with a night thermal sighting system.

The complex has been mass-produced since July 2012 by the Ya Mahdi industrial group, which is part of the Iranian Aerospace Industries Organization.
