Iran has claimed it is on the path to installing a sophisticated domestically-produced air defence system that will shield the country’s nuclear facilities.
Amid intensifying speculation over an imminent Israeli attack, a senior Revolutionary Guard commander announced that a system which would replace high-precision Russian missiles whose delivery was cancelled due to international sanctions was almost one-third complete and would be ready for deployment next March.
Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili, commander of the Khatam al-Anbiya air defence base, claimed the Iranian system, the Bavar (Belief) 373 would be an improvement on the Russian model, which Iran wanted to buy as protection against a potential US or Israeli bombardment.
“The new system has higher and more developed capabilities than the S300 for discovering, identifying and destroying the targets while tracking them,” Brig Gen Esmaili told a conference in Tehran held to mark the Islamic republic’s Air Defence Day.
He said its name had been coined by Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who had told its inventor that if he had belief, it would come true.
If Brig Gen Esmaili’s boasts of the Bavar 373’s capabilities are justified, the system would bolster Iran’s air defences significantly.
