Iran has unveiled two domestically-manufactured state-of-the-art radar systems capable of detecting stealth aircraft and long-distance targets.
The advanced radar systems, Arash-2 and Kayhan, were unveiled on Monday on the occasion of the national Iranian Air Defense Day in a ceremony attended by high-ranking military commanders, including Commander of Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili.
The Iranian commander said Kayhan, which is a two-dimensional radar system, is capable of detecting and tracking hostile aerial targets, including conventional aircraft and stealth jets that fly on high altitudes.
The Arash-2 radar system can track targets at an estimated altitude of 100,000 feet, Esmaili stated.
The Iranian commander also said Talash-3, which is a new indigenous surface-to-air missile defense system and which was successfully test-fired recently, will be unveiled on September 22.
September 22 marks the beginning of the Sacred Defense Week, which commemorates the bravery and sacrifices of the Iranian soldiers who fought in the 1980-1988 Iraqi-imposed war and defended their country against enemy aggression.
In recent years, Iran has made great strides in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured other countries that its military might poses no threat to other states, saying that its defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
