Iran receives new batch of Russian S-300 air defense systems. On the road was spotted the new 30N6E2 multifunctional illumination and guidanceradar (x-band).
The first battalion was shown off by the Iranian military at the National Army Day parade in Tehran on April 17, six days after the receipt of the system.

The S-300PMU1 mobile multichannel ADMS is designed to provide highly efficient defense for the most important political, administrative, economic, and military facilities against air attacks; attacks by strategic cruise, air ballistic, tactical, and theater ballistic missiles and other air offense systems in difficult tactical environments and in situations with heavy radio jamming.
