Senior military officials in Tehran announced a few months ago that the Iranian missile shield enjoys even better features than the Russian version, as it has better agility, mobility and precision capabilities and can intercept all targets in low, mid and high altitudes.
General Esmayeeli had stated in February that the Iranian missile system would have “higher capabilities than the (Russian) S-300″ once it starts operation, adding that “the indigenized system will be more powerful than S-300 missile system”.
Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army’s Self-Sufficiency Rear Admiral Farhad Amiri said in May, 2013 that Bavar-373 missile defense system had reached the production stage and its subsystems had been tested successfully.
