Iran’s new S-300 missile system was put on display in the Iranian army and air defence forces parade on Sunday April 17.


The Fars News Agency reported on April 17 that in a parade marking Army Day in Iran, Iranian armed forces displayed their newly acquired S-300 defence missile system.

The report adds that the display is not complete and only includes the radar, command post and communications parts of the system.

Iran signed a deal with Russia for the delivery of S-300 missiles systems for $800 million. The delivery of the rockets was delayed after the UN imposed an arms embargo on Iran in 2010.

With the removal of the international sanctions, the deal has been resumed.
