Tehran (ISNA) - A senior Iranian commander says the domestically-built Bavar-373 air defense system has been tested and will be employed alongside the Russian-made S-300 missile defense system by March 2018.

Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili, the commander of the Iranian Army’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base, said that all of the Bavar-373 sub-systems have been completed and its missile tests have been conducted.

The Bavar-373 is made completely in Iran and some of its parts are different from those of S-300,” he said, adding the country wants to use the Bavar-373 alongside the Russian S-300 system which it received in 2016. 

The Bavar-373 will be handed over to Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base by the end of the new Persian calendar year in March 2018 and put into operation as soon as it is delivered to the base, he said.
