'Falaq' radar system was unveiled in a ceremony at the presence of Commander of the Iranian Army's Khatam ol-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Alireza Sabahi Fard in Tehran this morning. The gamma-class system can detect different cruise and ballistic missiles as well as stealth planes at a range of 400km. The overhauling operations of Falaq took 2,300 man/hours of work.

According to Iranian military sources, the Falaq has lots of capabilities and is able to identify different cruise and ballistic missiles as well as stealth and unmanned aircraft. The Iranian defense industry, military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the defense sphere.

"Today, we have gained full self-sufficiency in the area of radar systems and powerfully detect different advanced US planes and give them warning," General Sabahi Fard said, addressing a conference in Tehran.

He also underscored Iran's astonishing progress in developing powerful defense systems, and said, "Our indigenized systems have made enemies realize that if they want to start a conflict with us, they will receive heavy blows."
