28. It's the launcher that is the question.

The diameter of the rockets used was 333mm, roughly, from a photo of someone holding a tape measure on the base of the circular airfoil. That means that they could be launched from a Falaq-2 launcher, if the diameter of the payload is the same, as it appears to be in the other photos. That's the pertinent issue here. They could also have been launched from a rack launcher. But, Syria has Falaq-2 equipment from Iran, which is a 333mm weapon system.

That's the common ground here. As the person at the source said, these may be low production, special purpose rockets, built to be used with the launch system for specific purposes. Clearly, they are less expensive to build than the rocket you displayed. But, with the diameter the same, they could be launched from the same equipment.

See, the thing is that I'm just posting information from the Internet. Your argument isn't with me, because I'm not making an argument. Talk to the person at the link.

All of that is at the link in the OP.
