BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – In the next two weeks, the Iranian military will introduce their upgraded version of their Bavar-373 air defense system. 

According to the Russian aviation publication Avia.Pro, this upgraded air defense system will not only replace the Russian-supplied S-300, but also surpass the latter.

“According to the data presented, the Iranian Bavar-373 radars can detect air targets at distances of up to 300 kilometers, and, in addition to aircraft, the radar is able to detect cruise and ballistic missiles, as well as small drones. According to unconfirmed data, the radar is also capable of detecting stealth aircraft, which makes it an effective means of combating F-22 and F-35 fighters, which, incidentally, were recently discovered near the Iranian borders,” the publication stated.

“Iran has already announced that its own air defense system will allow it to compete with Russian air defense systems, which, in particular, is facilitated by its low cost,” they added. 

The Iranian military previously acquired the Russian S-300 in 2015, but their engineers had already begun working on a new air defense system to improve their capabilities.

Some publications reported earlier this year that Iran was mulling the purchase of the Russian S-400 system; however, Russian officials later revealed that Tehran had yet to inquire about such an acquisition.

No matter what that jihadi loving Israeli scum daeshsux says, the proof is in the pudding Iranian weapons system has kept the Israelis from ever carrying out their threats on bombing Iran for the last 30 years. If your generals realize this, then maybe a pathetic Israeli troll such as yourself should realize, useless state of the Israeli military. Oh and no a few chickenshit pinprick bombing runs hiding in Lebanese airspace behind often civilian aircraft, doesn’t change anything militarily on the ground in Syria. All your pathetic air force is good for is destroying civilian infrastructure and murdering women… Read more »

I hope so, Iran needs the ability to defend itself. And I don’t support its system.

Hey Israeli pig, if your so confident in your ability to strike Iran with impunity then why haven’t you in the last 30 years done so. Its because your little faget country would get easily blown out of the sky like your Yankee sugar daddy’s highest tech drone. You Israeli are only good at killing defenseless women and children you little chickenshit.
