The agreement on the delivery of S-300 missile system has been finalized and the only remaining issue is the date of delivery now,” Brigadier General Dehqan told reporters in Moscow today.
 

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday removed the ban on the delivery of the missile shield to Iran.

Dehqan said a public announcement will be made as soon as final talks over the exact delivery date end.

On Wednesday morning, General Dehqan announced that Iran would receive the S-300 air defense systems from Russia in 2015.

"We will sign the contract for the delivery of S-300 air defense systems with the Russian side during an upcoming visit to Moscow in the current year," Brigadier general Dehqan said prior to his departure to Moscow to take part in 2015 International Moscow Security Conference on Wednesday morning.

He noted that the Iranian Defense Ministry has studied the details of the S-300 contract and the air defense system will be delivered to Iran before the end of 2015.

On Tuesday, local media in Russia said Moscow is capable of delivering five S300 air defense missile systems to Tehran in the first stage of their cooperation.

Interfax quoted a senior Russian General as saying that "supplying Iran with the S300 missile system, would compensate the geopolitical mistake Russia did during last years".

On Monday, Russia's Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that supplies of the Russian S-300 air defense missile systems to Iran may begin any moment in line with the relevant decree signed by the Russian president.

The S-300 (NATO reporting name SA-10 Grumble) is a series of Russian-made long-range surface-to-air defense missile systems produced by NPO Almaz, based on the initial S-300P version. The S-300 system was developed against threats of aircraft and cruise missiles.

The S-300PMU2 Favorit is the latest variant of the S-300 family. It can engage targets flying from 10 m to 27 km above the surface at a speed of up to 10,000 km/h. It is claimed that it has a kill ratio ranging from 0.8 to 0.93 against aircraft and from 0.8 to 0.98 against Tomahawk-class cruise missiles.

The S-300PMU2 can engage up to 6 targets simultaneously while providing guidance for up to 12 missiles - two missiles per target ensuring target kill. The S-300PMU2 Favorit can use the launcher unit 5P85TE and 5P85SE.
