Why is Israel worried about a defensive S-300 anti-aircraft weapon. Israel should be worried that Iran possesses a significant number of Russian made Sunburn and Onxy missiles for which America has begged Russia to supply to them also. The Americans are at least 10 years behind the Russians in missile technology. Technical specfiications of the Sunburn missiles: Cruise altitude: 20 feet above sea level (that is phenomonal, good luck to any radar trying to detect it) Raytheon and BAE Systems have yet to design a radar system capable of tracking this missile. Cruise speed: Mach 3 (Travelling faster than rifle bullets) Nuclear capable. Naturally the Chinese possess these weapons on their destroyers also. In the event of war the US 5th Fleet in the Persian Gulf will suffer a watery grave. The Persian Gulf is called that for a reason. Becuase the Persians enjoy complete control and command of this gulf of water. That's why it's called the Persian Gulf.
