On January 6, deputy commander of Iran’s Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Gen. Abolfazl Sepehrirad said the Bavar-373 air and missile defense missile system had successfully completed all initial testing. The indigenously produced Bavar-373 is designed to intercept cruise missiles, drones, combat aircraft, and ballistic missiles at terminal altitudes, and employs three different missile variants to hit targets at various altitudes, and shares striking visual similarities to Russia’s S-300 air defense system, which Iran also imported in 2016.
