Iran has tested its locally made Bavar-373 missile defense system during their joint aerial maneuvres, codenamed Modafean Aseman Velayat 99.

Aseman Velayat 99 covered more than half of the country’s territories and included air defense units from the Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC.)

 “In the context of implementing this phase of maneuvers, and following attacks carried out by strategic and long-range aircraft against predetermined targets, the Bavar-373 missile system detected and identified a target with a very low radar cross-section, to successfully destroy it from a long-range, for the first time within the framework of a comprehensive air defense mechanism. said the Iranian army website.  

Brigadier General Abbas Farajpour, spokesman for the joint air defense exercise confirmed the success of the test and that they would continue to improve on their defense systems.

According to its technical specs, the Bavar-373 surface-to-air missile defense system is on par with the Russian S-400 system.

The Bavar-373 is an 8×8 truck platform with two rectangular container launchers mounted at the rear of the chassis containing one Sayyad-4 missile.
