S-300 Operational by March

Iran’s air defense base will put the Russian-made S-300 air defense missile system into operation by the end of the current Iranian year that ends in March 2017, announced a senior commander.
The S-300 missile system is being stationed in Iran, Commander of the Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Lieutenant General Farzad Esmaeili told reporters in Tehran on Friday, according to Tasnim News Agency.
Iran is now receiving shipments of the missile system’s components, which he said will become fully operational by next March.
Back in April, Iran displayed parts of the S-300 missile system in a military parade in Tehran held to mark National Army Day.
The gear unveiled in the ceremony included two radar systems of S-300, its carrier and command vehicles as well as the crane for lifting its missiles.
Iran has been long waiting to receive the air defense missile system it had purchased from Russia in 2007.
