TehranIran plans to further increase the operational range of its recently upgraded homegrown surface-to-air Bavar-373 missile system to 400 km, a senior Iranian military commander said. Making the remarks in an exclusive interview with a state media outlet, Commander of the Iranian Army’s Air Defence Force, Alireza Sabahi-Fard said on Tuesday that the system is currently capable of hitting targets within a range of 305 km.

He noted that the missile system is also capable of targeting the fifth generation fighter aircraft equipped with stealth technology, Xinhua news agency reported.
