The new missile, called “Sayyad 4B”, has a range of 300 kilometers.
In recent tests, the Bavar-373 air defense system successfully hit targets at a distance of more than 300 km with new missiles.
Iranian air defense systems detected targets at a range of over 450 km with optimized radar and tracked them at a range of about 405 km before detonating them with the Sayyad 4B.
The Sayyad 4B missile’s engine, which runs on hybrid solid fuel, has undergone operational testing for the first time.
New breakthroughs increased the Bavar 373’s detection radar range from 350 km to 450 km and its tracking radar range from 260 km to 400 km.
Adoption of the Sayyad 4B also means that the range of Iran’s air defense system missiles has been extended to 300 km and the engagement altitude has been increased from 27 km to 32 km.
Iranian military experts and engineers have made great strides in manufacturing a wide range of domestic equipment in recent years, making the military self-sufficient in the field of national defense.
Iran insists its military power poses no threat to countries in the region, and stresses that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is based entirely on deterrence.
