Iran launches production line of 3 new radar systems


Iran launches production of advanced radars capable of detecting stealth aircraft, warplanes and cruise missiles.

Iran’s military has launched production line for three domestically manufactured radar systems.

The production line was inaugurated in the presence of Iran’s Deputy Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami in the southern city of Shiraz on Sunday.

Hatami said that the advanced radars are capable of detecting “stealth aircraft, warplanes and cruise missiles.”

“Detection of anti-radiation missiles (ARMs) is another capability of these radar systems,” he said, adding that Iran aims to equip its military with state-of-the-art electronic systems.

Last month, the Islamic Republic unveiled two domestically made sophisticated radar systems dubbed Arash-2 and Kayhan.

Hatami stated that the Islamic Republic has attained self-sufficiency in manufacturing military equipment, including missiles and radar systems.

In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems.

Iran has repeatedly said that its military might poses no threat to other countries, reiterating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
