Iran did smuggle those missiles to Yemen. Saudi Air Force managed to destroy them and even brought some of them intact.

That's sayyad 2 missile, this system (Khordad 15) uses sayyad 3 missiles (and Bavar 373 uses sayyad 3 and sayyad 4 missiles).

Looks like a modified RIM-66 Standard. I am so keen to learn about the radar and launcher.
Uses AESA Najm-804 radar (smaller version of Najm-802) and can engage 6 targets simultaneously. Tracking/interception range of 85km/45km for stealth targets and 150km/120km for non-stealth targets.

Sayyad 2 is reverse engineered SM-1 (70km range). Sayyad 3 is larger and improved version with 120km range. Sayyad 4 is even larger version of sayyad 3, will be used exclusively in bavar 373 system and has unclear range (it has been showed in photos but no footage of tests revealed yet that I know of - I think I remember reading it has 200km range).

Iran Unveils New Air Defense Missile System (+Video)
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Defense Ministry on Sunday unveiled a sophisticated air defense system capable of hitting several targets with homegrown ‘Sayyad-3’ missiles.
June, 09, 2019

In a ceremony in Tehran, Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami unveiled the homegrown air defense system, dubbed ‘Khordad 15th’.
Developed by the Defense Ministry’s experts, it was formally delivered to the Air Defense Force of the Iranian Army.

In comments at the event, Brigadier General Amir Hatami said the new air defense system has been paired with the ‘Sayyad-3’ long-range missiles and is capable of detecting various targets, including warplanes and intruding drones, within a range of 150 kilometers and tracking them at a range of 120 kilometers.

According to the minister, the Khordad 15th system can also detect stealth targets within a range of 85 kilometers and hit them in a range of 45 kilometers.

It is capable of intercepting 6 targets simultaneously, the minister said, adding that its ease of mobility would allow servicemen to prepare the air defense system for engagement in less than 5 minutes.

The general said that the air defense system is equipped with a phased array radar and independent launch pads and can effectively take action against various aerial targets, such as reconnaissance aircraft, bombers and tactical warplanes.

The minister went on to say that the Khordad 15th can be operated for shooting down targets at a maximum height of 27 kilometers and within a range of 75 kilometers.

Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the defense sphere.

Iran maintains that its military might poses no threat to regional countries, stressing that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.

It is the same system. Its a matter of warhead modification nothing else.

Totally inaccurate and wrong. Where did you get the information that the difference between sayyad-2 and 3 is just "warhead modification nothing else"? If anything, the warhead is the one thing that didn't change (that we know)...

Both missiles are the same in the images I attached. Also same launching system Saudi Air Force targeted in Yemen. Its pretty simple modification, wings, propellant and warhead. Make one small to increase the other.
