Iranian S-300 air defense missile systems will put on combat duty in 2017
Jul 11, 2016



According Newsletter «TTU» in the material «S-300 iraniens», S-300PMU-2 anti-aircraft missile systems supplied from Russia, is still unfit for action.

The S-300PMU-2 anti-aircraft missile defense systems will put on combat duty not earlier 2017 to protect the airspace over Iran.

According to the commander of the base Fatam al-Anbiya Iranian General Farzad Esmaeli, the put on combat duty of the complex will be completed by the end of the Iranian year (20 March 2017).

The S-300PMU2 Favorit system, later redesignated SA-20B Gargoyle, is the last of the Almaz S-300P variants to carry the S-300P designation. Developed between 1995 and 1997, it was intended to compete directly against the Antey S-300V and Patriot PAC-2/3 systems as an Anti-Ballistic Missile system, while retaining the long range SAM capabilities of its predecessor S-300P variants.

The Favorit incorporates incrementally upgraded 30N6E2 Tomb Stone, NIIIP 64N6E2 Big Bird radars and a 54K6E2 command post, and the LEMZ 96L6E as its early warning and primary acquisition system, replacing the 36D6/ST-68UM Tin Shield and LEMZ 76N6E Clam Shell. While the system retains compatibility with earlier 48N6 missiles, a new extended 108 nautical mile range 46N6E2 missile was added.

Its going to take Iran a millennium to absorb the tech and become fully capable of dealing with it independently. The Russians might operate it for awhile till the training is done.

The Iranian crews were already trained on how to operate the system in 2007, when the Russians froze the sale.

Russia denied supplying Iran with the system not sure how true that is? I think I have seen the first batch of s-300 arriving in Iran.

The sale was set to go through in 2007 however Russia agreed to freeze the sale at the behest of the U.S & to a lesser extent Israel, to try & pressure Iran into a nuclear agreement. the Iranian crews finished basic training on how to operate the system before this happened but then Moscow didn't ship the actual system... leaving personnel that trained on it's operation without their hardware.
the Russians have shipped the system however some Iranians on the forum have suggested the Russians may have shorted Iran the Tombstone radar.... Which if true would lessen the S-300s effectiveness.
