A senior Iranian commander says the country is to unveil missile defense systems with the technology to counter electronic warfare and equipped with mid-range and long-range radars. Missile systems capable of thwarting electronic warfare threats and new mid-range and long-range radars will be connected to Iran’s integrated air defense network on September 1, said Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili, the commander of Iran’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base, on Saturday.

The senior Iranian commander added that the missile and radar defense systems will keep under surveillance significant areas of land in the south and southeastern part of Iran. He added that one of the radars will have a range of approximately 1,000 kilometers (620 miles). The radar, Esmaili said, will be installed in one of the strategic areas of Iran. MORE
