Iran Unveils Locally Upgraded Russian Radar (Video)

Support SouthFront

The Iranian military unveiled on August 10 the Falaq radar system, an indigenously upgraded and overhauled version of the Russian 67N6E GAMMA DE.

Developed by Russia’s VNIIRT, the GAMMA DE is a 3D, UHF active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar that operates on the L-band. The radar was designed to provide early warning and support air-defense systems.

“This system has high capabilities and can identify all types of cruise missiles, stealth planes, drone systems and ballistic missiles for a range of 400 kilometers,” commander of the Iranian military’s Air Defense Force Brig. Gen. Alireza Sabahi-Fard said during the unveiling ceremony, according to Press TV.

The Iranian TV channel said that that the Iranian military overhauled the Russian radar in order to counter sanctions restricting access to spare parts of foreign-developed system.

In the last few years, Iran made several breakthroughs in the field of air-defense. Last June, the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) claimed that it had used the domestically-made Khordad-3 air-defense system to shoot down an RQ-4A drone of the U.S. Navy.

That’s so good. Iran should develop 600 km range radars and 12 meters diameter mirror telescope for which Iran can develop mirror itself.

Iran should also develop 200kn thrust turbo jet engines for fighter jets and for commercial air line.

Zionism = EVIL

Iranian radars are now covering all the Persian Gulf, Iraq and Syria. Soon the Bavar 373 will be deployed in Syria and Lebanon.


Now Iran will produce many copies of these radars and will take to every corner of Iran where needed. Now even Iran can fix it in their commercial airline to use it as AWACS. AWACS is a military surveillance system, carried by aircraft, that can track many other aircraft from a great distance.

Nice, seeing Iran proudly displaying their weapons and systems.

Whilst Trump is begging South Korea for $5 billion, in order to pay for their protection racket.

they should deploy these along their border and link them with S-300, that way we can see some “stealthy” scrap metal falling from the sky
