On August 22nd, Iran unveiled its indigenous mobile air missile defense system – the Bavar-373.

The unveiling took place during the National Defense Industry Day celebrations.

The system was unveiled by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Defense Minister Amir Hatami

“With this long-range air defense system, we can detect … targets or planes at more than 300 km (190 miles), lock it at about 250 km, and destroy it at 200 km,” Hatami said.

Thee Bavar-373 is a long-range mobile air defense system which was initially revealed in August 2016. A distinguishing feature of Bavar-373 is its vertical launching system with square launchers, mostly used for air defense on warships.

The missile system uses a long-range, phased array fire-control radar and employs three different types of missiles to hit targets at various altitudes.

The new system is said to be capable of neutralizing both conventional aerial targets such as aircraft and drones, as well as high-speed ballistic missiles.

Iran is said to have launched the project in 2010 after Russia suspended a $900 million deal signed in 2007 to deliver the S-300 complex. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, ordered the development of the missile system, after then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev banned armed sales to the country in light of UN sanctions against Tehran.

The agreement was put on hold after the UN Security Council adopted resolution 1929 that banned the sale of weapons to Tehran.

A senior Iranian military commander said on October 16th 2011 that the Bavar-373 (meaning ‘Belief’) system is more advanced than the Russian S-300 in terms of defense against aircraft and cruise missiles.

Whether that is true is dubious.

Back in 2011, Executive Deputy Head of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Gen. Shahrokh Shahram told IRNA that when we were talking about purchasing the S-300 anti-aircraft missile defense system it was necessary to counter the threats of that time.

During the August 22nd 2019 Defense Minister Amir Hatami said that this unveiling was not final and “in the near future” there would be a complete unveil.

Iran has a practice of unveiling weapon systems more than once, in sort of “sneak-peaks,” which is evident in some recent unveilings of drones, loitering weapons, smart bombs and so on.

    Well done!

  • stupid is as stupid does

    From US to China to Iran and some other countries as well.
    Everybody is trying or have tried to make copy of S-300.
    For the publicity Russia can’t get better publicity than that.

    I hope that Iran’s system is as good in every other way as Russian S-300.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The only real test of any system is in combat and hopefully Iranians will use it on the Zionist and Saudi scum. This should be in Hezbollah hands ASAP so that Zionists using Lebanese airspace to launch stand off missiles at Syria stop.

      • stupid is as stupid does

        True.
        Specially against the countermeasures of enemy that can be used.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          I agree, the best and internationally recognized way is for Syria to defend its airspace against both Americunt and Zionist intruder aircraft by using both the S-300 and Iranian systems. Hezbollah should also have access to modern AD systems.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    This is an additional layer is the Iranian SAM umbrella, which was already quite strong and now the coverage is from Hormuz to all the way up in the Persian Gulf and beyond. This system was almost 9 years in the making and incorporates many anti-ECM capabilities which the Americunts and Zionist scum know fuckall about.

    Bavar-373 is a mobile missile defense system designed to intercept and destroy incoming hostile targets. The system employs missiles that have a maximum range of 300 kilometers.

    The system is capable of simultaneously detecting up to 300 targets, tracking 60 targets at once and engaging six targets at a time. According to the Iranian defense chief, “With this long-range air defense system, we can detect … targets or planes at more than 300 km, lock it at about 250 km, and destroy it at 200 km.

    • stupid is as stupid does

      Missiles have maximum range of 200 kilometers…
      Look up the chart.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Well either the defence minister Mr. Hatami is misinformed or the chart is guesstimates. Iran has a history of not giving accurate information as its frigates are classified as destroyers. In any case on paper this looks like a pretty serious system and hopefully, unlike Russia and its decoration piece S-300 and 400, Iran and its allies will use it in real combat to defend their airspace.

        • stupid is as stupid does

          “Russia and its decoration piece” keeps (as deterrent) Syria live for quite some time.
          When it comes to power, Russia is in totally another league to Iran as world nuke Super Power (second to none).
          Russia can’t be easy on trigger because with different power goes different responsibility.
          So it is not Iran or even China but Russia that keeps in check whole
          US-NATO + endless list of stooges & globalist cabal around the planet from wining the game militarily.
          Russia is not type of country that starts the wars
          Russia is the country that will finish every war as winner even if that has to be the last one.
          And it will be so till China rightfully takes primacy from Russia.
          All this agitation and chatter of calling for more war is totally irrational.
          Because such approach would spread the conflict outside of Syria and all over the Middle East and probably grow into the WW3
          One must keep control of every move if one wants to stay on the top of the game.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Sorry, Russian record has been very poor as Afghanistan and now Ukraine has amply showed. They lack the stamina for a fight, it is a weak country of barely 140 million, made up of many restless minorities with massive Jew penetration and corruption. Even the USSR played the Arabs and gave them third rate weaponry.

          • Free man

            “Russian record has been very poor as Afghanistan showed. They lack the stamina for a fight, it is a weak country … ” – You are extremely stupid.
            Russia is a world power.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Nothing to get uppity kiddo :) Russia was chased out of Afghanistan by a bunch of goat herders. They executed the war very poorly, the Pakistanis blew their airforce out of the sky at will and Russians did fuckall for 10 years and exposed its primitive military. Afghanistan was the end of USSR.. Now if you want to see real warrior nations, check out the Vietnamese, Yemenis etc.

          • Free man

            Like I said, you are extremely biased.
            Everyone saw Iran’s performance in the Iran-Iraq war, it wasn’t something to brag about.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            I agree, but remember the illiterate mullahs that run Iran decimated the Shah’s professional military and even today the turbaned arseholes will not invest in a airforce because they are afraid of educated pilots.

          • daniel

            Sorry, but Putin said ” There are no oligarchs in Russia”

          • EveryoneIsBiased

            If not for the western supplied intelligence and chemical weapons, the war would have ended in Irans favor…

          • Free man

            You can’t call it victory. Hundreds of thousands of young people died in vain in an unnecessary war.
            A war that the Iranian ruler could end much faster.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            The decimated Iranian military performed very poorly, I am sorry to say that Iran was 4 times the size of Iraq and had much better western weaponry. They proved totally inept by using mass human waves and not being able to use weapons systems. I will give you an example, Iranians under pressure from the mullahs, started a spring offensive at Sussengerd using very advanced British Chieftain tanks, but did have have the combat engineers to check the ground for spring rains which bogged down most of the tanks that were captured by Iraq and then given to Jordan. I can give a million facts.

          • goingbrokes

            This is not so accurate.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            How so? if you have an alternate version of history, let’s hear it without emotive overtones like some of these excitable kids. Let me tell you something, if Russia did not have nukes, it would be the Sudan of the tundra.

          • stupid is as stupid does

            What “alternate version of history”
            you FILTHY TERRORIST PRODUCING BANKRUPTED GOAT FUCKING COUNTRY OF PAKISTAN can talk about “history”?

            History of chopping heads of maybe?!
            Fuck YOU cowardly human filth!

            I hope that India fucks you so hard that their dick knocks your teeth off
            you stinky excuse for human !!!

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Indeed, Pakistanis are goat fuckers too but still kicked Ruski arse out of Afghanistan. Sad but true.

          • stupid is as stupid does

            Say where are you from you STINKY COWARD !
            You filthy motherfucker!!

          • Zionism = EVIL

            I never fucked your mother, she was too ugly :)

          • goingbrokes

            Massive Saudi finance towards foreign mujahedeen, the birth of “Al Qaeda”.
            CIA supplying Stingers to the mujahedeen – before that nowhere was safe for them, Russian Hinds would hunt them everywhere, and they had no answers to it.
            USSR was lured into a debilitating trap by a CIA coup installing an anti-communist puppet. Brezinsky plan (not Afghan).
            I might remember more in a minute…

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Somewhat true, but Russians were cowards who never attacked Pakistani terrorist bases as the CIA armed and trained over 150,000 Mujahideen, the then darlings of the west, including Osama and the alCIAda. I can go on….

          • stupid is as stupid does

            of course you can “go on” forever with your rubbish because you are full of shit you stinking pig !

          • stupid is as stupid does

            Sorry…
            why are you writing all that?
            Yeah…I know all that…
            Thanks anyways.
            Yes US was preparing trap for USSR in Afghanistan and they try the same with Russia in Ukraine.
            They hope that Russia starts war against Ukraine so that they can send NATO troops in.
            And drain down Russian force while destroying Europe with another big European war
            Which would put BANKRUPTED – US in position to wipe their debt of 22 TRILLION dollars completely!

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Russia is the modern day Sudan, and you think it can fight America. Good one.

          • stupid is as stupid does

          • stupid is as stupid does

            No need to be sorry, but there is need to be accurate if one uses accusations.
            You talk rubbish exactly like typical NATO Westerner calling USSR = Russia
            And accusing Russian military of direct involvement in Ukraine war!?
            Actually you sound like CNN or (God forbid) Jewish neoconservative !

            1st. USSR in Afghanistan was in ideological interventions war (as stupid as any other US war) So I don’t see how it relates to the Russia in any possible way?
            Soviets did huge, stupid mistake with Afghanistan.

            2nd. How was Russian army defeated if they were not in Ukraine?!

            “They lack the stamina for a fight”
            ?!!??!
            Can’t actually believe my eyes what rubbish you write mr Zionist!
            USSR have had lost 27 MILLION of people of whom the largest parts were RUSSIANS !
            Many of them died to win the war against the best trained army that has ever existed on this planet ! They were nothing but HEROIC in their fight !
            And you accuse them of not having ” the stamina for a fight” ?!!?
            You must be fucking joking you loser!
            You have no decency in you whatsoever !

            Common you must now tell me so that I can LAUGH the name of your “heroic” country?!
            You are from WHERE mr Zionist ? What is the name of you heroic country and how many millions have got killed in defending you heroic country?

            Why would capitalist Russia make give away weapons to Arabs or to anybody?
            They are not interested in bribing like USSR with free handouts to spread
            fucking communism ! Why would they give for free?!
            Even though I am sure they did to Syria and Serbia and some other similar countries.
            But not to everybody!
            They do not print dollars out of nothing like US so that they can afford to give for free.
            Anyways Russia is already stuck with countries like Venezuela, Cuba and many others that can’t pay their debt back.

          • Daniel Miller

            m8 the Russians killed more around 500k-1 million hagis in afghanistan and only lost 10.000 of their own.
            soooo what exactly is bad about that?

          • Zionism = EVIL

            BS kiddo, the Ruskies lost 15,000 dead and Afghans perhaps 200,000 casualties.

          • Daniel Miller

            ok i realise you are to retarded too count but for the love of god just look it up the soviets lost 9500 troops in combat while 4000 succomed to their inguries and another 1000 form none combat related deaths.
            so thats 14.500 troops dead in total
            whole the most conservative estemates for the deaths of the sand niggers goes to a minimum of 75-90k
            so even if we take your accund of 15k that means that for each Russian soldier 5 hagis needed to die in order to kill him.
            and if we do your math that will be a 13/1 K/D ratio…not bad at all.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            More idiotic BS. You kids don’t have clue about military or strategic mass. Where do you get your info playstation. Adults don’t lose their cool and stick with FACTS. Russians or USSR got screwed in Afghanistan, pure and simple and USSR collapsed.

          • Daniel Miller

            if you are a adult and do not know how to do basic math i feel sorry for you xD
            but for real you really are retarded if you think the soviet afghan war was a strategic loss…thats like saying the US lost in vietnam and afghanistan on a strategic level
            both Russia and the US massacered their enemys in afghanistan the only reason they cant win is that the terrain prevents then form getting a objective victory.
            you know for a person whom claims to know shit about military tactics or as you call it “military or strategic mass” you shure seem clewless

          • Zionism = EVIL

            He is some UK Muslim teen retard.

          • Martin Petrovski

            What exactly is BS about his claim? I did the math as well and i cant find any error.
            Also in what way did the Afghan war of the 80’s impact the USSR?
            From all sources i can see the USSR collapsed due to internal political and economic turmoil not the Afghan war.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            It is combination of factors the USSR collapsed. The Russians are and were lazy, incompetent and corrupt. Most of their “communist party” was on CIA payroll. The Russian military equipment was JUNK, the GRU (military intelligence) totally fabricated the intelligence on Afghanistan in 1979 as they did not know the internal power struggles of Parcham and Khalq factions. The invading military was too small and totally unprepared for conflict and they simply lost the war and will to fight.

          • Martin Petrovski

            From what i can deduct you are verryyy bias,your whole attitude is and you seem quite ill informed on the subject.
            If the USSR’s communist party was on the CIA’s payroll why did they combat echother so mutch on the geopolitical,economic and combat sene?
            Also i what way are Russians lazy and corrupt exactly?
            How was their equipment junk?
            And how did the GRU fabricate military intellegance?
            You shure are making quite alot of claims yet i see 9 sources to back them up.
            Also you did not awnser my original question how are his numbres BS?

          • Zionism = EVIL

            What numbers, the guy is an idiot and claims that one million Afghans were killed by Russians, that is pure stupidity. These kids have no regard for human life as they have never seen war. The fact is that the CIA and its Pakistani proxies destroyed and humiliated the USSR and it collapsed and get over it. Russia is weak fragmented failed state with nukes and will fall to China eventually anyway and the western parts to NATO. It is only a matter of time.

          • Martin Petrovski

            But he did not his argument was that at the least it took 5 afghans to kill one Russian soldier and if we take your numbres its 13 for one Russian form what i can see he is trying to explain to you that the Russsians dominated the afghans on the tactical level witch is 100% true.
            “The fact is that the CIA and its Pakistani proxies destroyed and humiliated the USSR and it collapsed and get over it. ” are you claiming that a 5 to 1 or 13 to 1 kill ratio is humiliation and that the USSR collapsed due to the Afghan war?

            “Russia is weak fragmented failed state with nukes and will fall to China eventually anyway and the western parts to NATO. It is only a matter of time.”
            This statment is so wrong i can not even fathom what went thro your head to think this,i base my opinion on facts and form what i can deduct you do not.
            You claim Russia is fragmented. How?
            You claim its weak.How is it weak?
            You claim it will fall to China and NATO. Again how?

            What dose a intermediate range ballistic missile have anything to do with the collapse of the USSR’s econemy? A single system dose not contribute to the collapse.
            Debt played the biggest role in the USSR’s collapse.
            It took Russia more then 25 years to pay it off.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            I don’t think there are any “best” armies, it depends on who your adversary and their capability is. Russia so far has not fared too well in any post WW2 conflict.

            That is a common myth about WW2 but its not true western aid arrived moths after the defeat of the wearmaht at the gates of Moscow.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Look you sound like a normal intelligent guy. The reality is that Russia chickened out of Cuban missile crises, messed up the invasions of Hungary, Czechoslovakia and then made enemies of all of eastern Europeans by its sheer thuggish behavior. The Poles hate the Russians the most now. Russia played the dumbass Arabs and sold them junk and again chickened out when the US organized the world’s biggest airlift ti support the Zionists in 1973, and I can go on. Russians individually may be good soldiers, but their leadership has always stunk, look at the defeat in WW1 and subsequent overthrow of Czar and then the creation of Jew USSR. I have nothing personal against Russians, but their behavior has been a disaster. Every Russian wants to move to the west.

          • Martin Petrovski

            “The reality is that Russia chickened out of Cuban missile crises”
            so you wold prefer for their to have been a nuclear war? i am sorry but no the Cuban missile crisis was a very close call and the Russians had been smart to back down since it was a better option.

            “messed up the invasions of Hungary, Czechoslovakia” plz refer what you mean by this i think you are reffering to the Hungarian uprising and the and the Prauge spring?

            “and then made enemies of all of eastern Europeans by its sheer thuggish behavior”
            in what way? all eastern european states had their own govt they had not been governed by the USSR directly.

            “The Poles hate the Russians the most now”
            So you are taking the opinion of a small chunk of the population and claim that the whole nation despises another nation for what they did witch was not under their control?

            “Russia played the dumbass Arabs and sold them junk and again chickened out when the US organized the world’s biggest airlift ti support the Zionists in 1973”

            I am sorry but you are flat out wrong on this one the arabs have noone to blame by themselfs for their faliure in 1973 and in the 6 day war,arab armys are very incompetant all of them are history both form the 20th and the current century show this Iraq Suadi Arabia Egyipt Syria and so on are all examples of this no matter who trains them or gives them weapons arabs cant seem to grasp the concept of modern warfare.

            “look at the defeat in WW1 and subsequent overthrow of Czar and then the creation of Jew USSR.”
            The defeat in WW1 was caused by the bolshevic revolution.
            Also its quite ironic you call it “Jew USSR” when the USSR was a strictly atheistic state.

            “I have nothing personal against Russians, but their behavior has been a disaster. Every Russian wants to move to the west.”
            what behaivor has been a disaster?
            also migration numbres dont agree with your last sentance.

          • Emad Irani

            S300 and S400 were never tested in a warfare. In Syria, the Syrian still have to use S200 against Israeli F16. That is why Russia sold to Turkey while producing S500…

          • stupid is as stupid does

            S-300… they were tested just recently in Syria against some Israhell missile attack I think.
            That’s at least what I saw in some newspapers… don’t know any more where that was.
            Syrians do not need Russian approval to use their S-300.
            But they must use system well enough to obtain good results.
            I hope that they are trained well enough by Russians.
            The best way to use it would be against Israeli F-16 because S-300 is above all anti-aircraft system even though it can be used against the missiles as well..

            ‘That is why Russia sold to Turkey while producing S500…”
            I do not understand this sentence at all….
            Sold what? S-400? Sold why?
            Write in English please so that I can understand.
            No Syrians are not forced to use only S-200. They have plenty of options plus
            S-300 on the top.
            Syria has also BUK-M1 and BUK-M2 modernized.. And that is some very serious medium range system.

          “With this long-range air defense system, we can detect … targets or

          Hatami and chart say one and the same thing.
          What part don’t you understand?

    • stupid is as stupid does

      Can’t “destroy it at 200 km” because that is max range of the missile you retard !
      Or missile flies perfect straight line and airplanes hovers and waits for missile to come to get hit !

  • EveryoneIsBiased

    “A senior Iranian military commander said on October 16th
    2011 that the Bavar-373 (meaning ‘Belief’) system is more advanced than
    the Russian S-300 in terms of defense against aircraft and cruise
    missiles.

    Whether that is true is dubious.”

    Why so snarky SF? Because it indeed may be more advanced than S300?
    Being neutral one could say that is is not confirmed. But “dubious” implies that the Iranian claim would be intentially misleading and likely untrue.
    SF become more biased towards Iran in this year, this aint the first time.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The problem is that none of the Russian or Iranian systems have been used to bring down Americunt aircraft that violate Syrian and Iraqi airspace every day. However, a Russian/Iranian SA2 or Sayyad 2 did bring down a Zionist F-16I a while ago and since then the Zionist scum have been attacking Syria from Lebanon. It is time to really test these systems.

      • EveryoneIsBiased

        True that.. And with the escalation in the Persian Gulf, it will only be a matter of time.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Exactly, Iranian mullahs got involved in a very complex Syrian situation and let the Zionists attack Syria with impunity, Russia did the same and now crunch time is indeed coming, but I have a feeling Zarif who is spineless clod will back down as he is already sending feelers to the French for negotiating an even weaker JCPOA. If the idiotic mullahs were logical, they would have tested a nuke as they have brought so much misery on Iranian people with sanctions for nothing. Iran is being hammered for a “nuclear program” that is basically weaker than a mosquito spray factory. The Pakistanis, Indians and DPRK had real nuclear programs and did not give a fuck and tested nukes and everyone shut the fuck up and respects them.

          • EveryoneIsBiased

            The only way to avoid sanctions for Iran would be to fullfill all of the US demands. It has only partly to do with nukes, but with Iran being the only real danger to Israel as regional power.

            And this is known very well in Iran, on all sides of society.

            They play their hand very well, and Trump brought the Iranian people together, united them against the attack of the US. They know it will be a long fight, and cleverly walk the tightrope of diplomacy and escalation.

            Their proxys are stronger than ever, and even though no country truely stands beside them 100% (Russia and China included), they will not blink as they know it was never about nuclear weapons, but all about erasing Iran as a regional power.

            Fullfilling those demands is impossible for Iran, no matter for the Mullahs, or the so called “moderate/progressive” part of society:

            1. Declare to the International Atomic Energy Agency
            (IAEA) a full account of the prior military dimensions of its nuclear
            programme and permanently and verifiably abandon such work in
            perpetuity.

            2. Stop enrichment and never pursue plutonium reprocessing, including closing its heavy water reactor.

            3. Provide the IAEA with unqualified access to all sites throughout the entire country.

            4. End its proliferation of ballistic missiles and halt further launching or development of nuclear-capable missile systems.

            5. Release all US citizens as well as citizens of US partners and allies.

            6. End support to Middle East “terrorist” groups, including Hezbollah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

            7. Respect the sovereignty of the Iraqi government and permit the disarming, demobilisation and reintegration of Shia militias.

            8. End its military support for the Houthi rebels and work towards a peaceful, political settlement in Yemen.

            9. Withdraw all forces under Iran’s command throughout the entirety of Syria.

            10. End support for the Taliban and other “terrorists” in Afghanistan and the region and cease harbouring senior al-Qaeda leaders.

            11. End the Islamic Revolutionary Guard corps-linked Quds Force’s support for “terrorists” and “militant” partners around the world.

            12. End its threatening behaviour against its neighbours, many of whom
            are US allies, including its threats to destroy Israel and its firing of
            missiles at Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and threats to international shipping and destructive cyberattacks.

            This would make Iran defenseless, and ready for further operations ending in regime change. Especially the missiles are the only true deterrent besides irans proxys. Without them, US+Israel+Sunni Arab states would be able to invade Iran like they played in their war games since the 1980s.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Everyone lies and exaggerates the capability of their weapons. Goes back to the advent of weaponry. That is why it is good to be a cynic to see through the BS. The Jews are biggest fabricators.

      • EveryoneIsBiased

        Hiding true specs of equipment is a standard practice, yes. But it goes in both directions.
        Again, the neutral and unbiased term would be “unconfirmed”.
        Iranian weapons just like NK have a decades old history how they are judged in the west. First western intelligence services claim that specs are exagreated, or claim that those weapons are mere mockups. Only when proven in combat, the narrative shifts in the other direction, labeling the same weapons as threats the west needs to act against.
        Things is, no one knows till battle tested. And every country tries to control the narrative, that their weapons are superior, and those of the enemy subpar.
        Thats the info war game. I only would expect SF not to take part in this tactic, and report this neutral, until the weapon system can actually be judged by its combat statistic.

    • stupid is as stupid does

      Those are not specs of the system that is “better” than S-300.
      They can always hide behind secrecy of data as an excuse, but I see it
      more as an attempt of cheap publicity.
      If they have better range or anything else then they can say it without giving exact numbers to still keep the secrecy.

    This is testament and proof that Iran full well knows that the Russian S-300PMU2 cannot fend off an attack from the US and Israels most advanced aircraft and missiles.
    Iran full well knows the S-300 is good against standard US weapons, not against their most advanced weapons.
    In this new era, only S-400, Laser, and Bavar-373 systems can hope to defend against Israels and US attacks.
    Any nation depending upon S-300 beware, you have been lured into a faults sense of security.
