Iran to receive Russian S-300 Defense System in January

2

Russia will dispatch in January the S-300 air defense system to Iran reported Russian news agency Tass. Russian Vladimir Putin lifted an export ban to Iran in April.

“It is planned to begin the process of delivery of the first regiment of the S-300PMU-2 air defense systems in January and to complete it in February. Iran is due to receive the second regiment of these systems in August or September 2016,” the source told Tass. “Russia will thus fulfill its obligations to supply the S-300PMU-2 air defense systems to Iran.”

Tass reported, quoting the source, that about 80 Iranian specialists will receive a four-month training in early 2016 to operate the S-300 missile systems at the Mozhaisky Military Space Academy in the Russian port city of St. Petersburg.

Long overdue. Include a few hundred ARMATA tanks as well for good measure.
