Iran unveils S-300 missile

  • Iran on its annual Army Day has unveiled parts of its air defence system which had been ordered from Russia. The S-300 system had been ordered few years ago but it was after the deal between Iran and six other countries regarding its nuclear activities that made the delivery of the system a reality. The missile tubes and the radar equipment of the S-300 were displayed during the military parade which was held in southern Tehran. This missile will help in early detection of an approaching aircraft and as per Iran, will serve in defending the country in case of attacks.
