TEHRAN, (BM) – The Iranian armed forces introduced two new radar installations developed in Iran, learned BulgarianMilitary.com. Allegedly, this is a “strategic” means of defense. The ceremony was attended by the commander of the armed forces of the Islamic Republic, Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi.
The Khalidzh-e-Fars installation, whose name translates as the Persian Gulf, has a range of 800 kilometers and is said to be capable of detecting invisible and ballistic targets.
The radius of the Morakeb radar (Vigilant) is 400 kilometers, but it can distinguish between small targets, including those flying at low altitude. Its main task is the fight against unmanned aerial vehicles.
At the ceremony, the Bavar-373 anti-aircraft missile system was once again presented. He was shown at the parade in honor of the day of military industry in August 2019. It was developed as an alternative to the Russian S-300 systems.
However, even before this, information appeared in the media that the latest Iranian air defense system had already taken up combat duty. One of the complexes deployed in Syria was destroyed in April 2018. This attack is attributed to the Israeli Air Force.
