Iran Starts Using Home-Made Air Defense Simulators
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Army's Air Defense Unit started using home-made simulators for Hawk and Skyguard air defense missile systems.
The Iranian experts at Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base have been able to develop and manufacture the simulators.
These systems have already been put into operation and air defense units have been equipped with the new systems.
On September 22, Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base displayed a number of its military hardware at the Armed Forces parade marking the beginning of the Sacred Defense Week in late September, which commemorates the braveries of the Iranian soldiers who fought in the 1980-1988 Iraqi-imposed war and defended their country from enemy aggressions.
The hardware included Nebo mobile radar system, Kasta surveillance system, Matla' al-Fajr (Crack of Dawn) radar system, S-200 missile system, Hawk missile system, Shahab radar system and Skyguard defense system.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and has attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
