Tehran’s military displayed a brand-new indigenous air defense missile system, capable of tracking and shooting down six targets at the same time. The weapon was rolled out amid growing tensions around the Persian Gulf.

Iran unveiled its new domestically-designed air defense missile system Khordad 15 on Sunday. Equipped with long-range Sayyad 3 missiles, it can shoot down enemy jets and combat drones at a range of 120 kilometers, Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said.



The complex can also track “stealth targets,” intercepting them 45km away. Overall, the weapon can destroy six targets simultaneously, according to military officials.

In recent years, Iran has been making a push to build its own weapons and become less dependent on foreign suppliers. In February, the country successfully tested the Hoveizeh long-range cruise missile, capable of destroying targets at a range of over 1,350km. In the same month, Tehran’s midget Ghadir-class submarine fired an anti-ship cruise missile for the first time.

Iran's, since the bastard invasion of Iraq by the US, decided to develop and produce most of its weapons "in state".

Confounds their adversaries / intel agencies as they really don't know what they have or what is bluster. Your guess is just as good as mine.

What should be obvious to all however, Iran will be no Iraq.

12. I would imagine we have the ability to track the radar they use right back to its source...

or the means to disable all electronics in a given region.
