Iran unveils news air defense, missile systems

A new missile system and an air defense system were unveiled in Iran on Saturday morning.

The unveiling ceremony of the Arman anti-ballistic missile system and the Azarakhsh low-altitude air defense system was held in the presence of Iranian Defense Minister Mohammad Reza Ashtiani.

Arman, also known as ‘Tactical Sayyad’, can detect 24 targets at a distance of 180 kilometers and simultaneously engage 12 targets.

It has a short-range self-protection system in one of its silos that makes the weapon immune to low-altitude threats.

Suitable for detonation of targets at medium altitudes, the Iranian air defense system has become more agile since its radars and missile launchers have been merged into a single vehicle.

Iran for the first time showcased a replica of the Tactical Sayyad air defense system at the International Military Forum ARMY-2023 in Russia in August 2023.

The new homegrown missile systems will be integrated into the nationwide air defense network to enhance the country’s aerial defense capabilities.
