Iran Says its Bavar 373 Air Defense System Better than Iron Dome, Patriot, even S 400


In 2019, Iranian Brig. Gen. Shahrokh Shahram, then head of the defense ministry’s Organisation of Electronic Industries, said the Bavar-373 exceeded the capabilities of the US’ Patriot air defense system and even the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), although he was nonspecific as to which version of the Patriot its performance exceeded.

Iran’s newest version of the Bavar-373 is an even more effective air defense system than the Russian-made S-400 Triumf system, according to an Iranian defense leader.

“New editions of the Bavar-373 are coming and soon, a new edition that may be at the same or higher level than S400 will be unveiled,” Iranian Deputy Defense Minister Brig. Gen. Mahdi Farahi said during a Sunday television interview.

According to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, the former Aerospace Industries Organization chief also said that the country had developed a new type of liquid rocket fuel that’s as stable as solid fuel. Typically, solid fuels are placed in rockets that must be ready to fire at a moment’s notice, but with the disadvantage that the fuel is less efficient than liquid fuel. Stable liquid fuel would give Iranian missiles a faster firing time and speed while making them lighter at the same time.

The Bavar-373 was Iran’s answer to an export ban by Russia on its S-300 surface-to-air missile system until 2015. The domestically developed system employs multiple radars for detecting up to 300 targets at a time, tracking 60 of them, and engaging six, and can punch through many types of jamming.

  1. Here’s a free country that decided 43 years ago to say NO to slavery. What can US do against it? .. only sanctions to hurt its people and kill its scientists? Who is the terrorist here? US working for the devil worshipers who are trying to install their NWO or Iran that has defended the region against the bullies of NWO and teaches the region to follow its examples and be free. Does US know what freedom means?

  2. I wonder how the “Iron Dome” stacks up against the new Iran/Chinese/Russian Supersonic Missile Technology?
    That American Technology was stolen by Israeli Spy Jonathon Pollard and he sold it to China !
    Wouldn’t it be Ironic, if the Technolgy convicted Israeli Spy
    Jonathon Pollard stole, was used against Israel?
