A video, showing missiles’ launches from the S-300PMU-2 air defense system in Iran, has been for the first time published online.
The first video, showing a process of missiles’ launches from the S-300PMU-2 air defense missile weapon system in Iran has been published online.
The newspaper noted that the customer could get the weapon systems about 18 months after the contract’s conclusion that meant that the first S-300PMU-2s would be transferred to Tehran not earlier than in the middle of 2017.
However, in June 2016, social networks’ activists reported that Iran received a new batch of ordered divisions of the S-300PMU-2 air defense missile weapon systems. Several photos, showing a process of transportation of the air defense missile systems on the territory of Iran, were published as a confirmation of this fact.

In late August 2016, Commander of the Iranian Air Defense Forces Farzad Esmaili announced that the Russian S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems, supplied to Iran, had been deployed near the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant (FFEP). The statement was made on state television of the Islamic Republic.
The television showed missile weapon systems, deployed near the Fordow. At that time, Esmaili noted that since now, the nuclear facility would always be under the cover, adding that the Iranian sky “is one of the safest in the region.”
