Homegrown Air Defense System Passes Initial Tests

Domestically-developed missile defense system “Bavar-373” has successfully passed all initial tests, a military commander said.
In an interview with Tasnim News Agency on Saturday, Deputy Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Abolfazl Sepehrirad said the Bavar-373 air defense missile system has gone through all of the initial tests successfully.
He also said all training courses for operating the Russian-made S-300 system are currently being held inside Iran.
Iran received the S-300 from Russia in July 2016 and installed the missile system a month later.
Under a contract signed in 2007, Russia was required to provide Iran with at least five S-300 defense systems, but after its initial refusal to sell the system, Iranian experts began to manufacture a domestic version, known as Bavar-373.
The Iranian air defense system employs three different types of missiles to hit targets at various altitudes.
