Iran will mass produce its indigenous air defense system this year even as it has equipped its air defense base with Russian S-300 missile system.

“The Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base has received the strategic S-300 air defense missile system,” Iranian defense minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan was quoted as saying by Tasnim on the sidelines of a visit to an exhibition of the Iranian Army’s air defense base Tuesday.

“Iran has developed its domestically-built Bavar-373 air defense system and will launch its mass production line this year,” Dehqan said.

“Iranian system enjoys specifications and functions similar to those of S-300. The Bavar-373 can simultaneously engage multiple aircraft, ballistic missiles, and drones,” he added.
