Iran has put on display different defense achievements, including its version of the missile S-300 system, developed by local experts.
During Saturday parades by select units from Iran’s Armed Forces on the occasion of National Army Day, the domestically-manufactured Bavar-373 missile defense system, Rasoul (Messenger) and Fakour (Thoughtful) communications and commanding and smart control systems were displayed.
The Bavar-373 long-range missile defense system, which is similar to the Russian S-300, has been manufactured by Iranian defense experts and is capable of hitting air targets at a high altitude.
The Fakour commanding and smart control system has the ability to collect information from all sources relevant to air defense, including passive and active military radars, signal surveillance, missile systems and commanding and control systems.
It can guide and control air-based and ground-based air defense systems in a completely tactical and independent way.
The Rasoul advanced communications system is capable of encoding information, connecting the country’s infrastructure and transferring radar information from the battle scene to commanding centers.
The parades were held to commemorate National Army Day, which marks the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Army, in the presence of President Hassan Rouhani and military attaches of foreign embassies in Tehran.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
Iran has repeatedly said that its military might poses no threat to other countries, reiterating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
