Iran has tested its first ever long-range missile defence system amid tensions with the US over its weapons programme, Iranian state media has said.
Work on the new Bavar 373 system is underway, Farzad Esmaili, head of the Revolutionary Guards’ air defences, told IRIB in an interview on Sunday. It is expected to be fully functional by March 2018, he added.
Iran already has an S-300 Russian-made defence system, designed to defend against aircraft and cruise missiles.
