The president went to the Defense Ministry's Aerospace Industries Organization this morning, on Iran’s Defense Industry Day, and visited the latest military products developed by local experts in the aeronautical sphere.

Accompanied by Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan, President Rouhani saw different units of Bavar-373, a long-range air defense missile system developed jointly by the Defense Ministry, the Air Defense Force, as well as academic and research centers.


A distinguishing feature of Bavar-373 is its vertical launching system with square launchers, mostly used for air defense on warships. Bavar-373 uses a long-range, phased array fire-control radar, dubbed Me’raj-4.

The air defense system reportedly employs three different types of missiles to hit targets at various altitudes.


A locally-produced super heavy military vehicle, known as Zoljanah, carries the launchers of the Iranian air defense system.

Tehran has always assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.

The president was also briefed on different stages of manufacturing Iran’s ‘national turbojet engine’, and visited other units displaying achievements in the production of fighter and cargo jets, helicopters and drones.

Iranian military technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
