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.

In its recent test, Bavar-373 was able to detect ballistic missiles as well, he added.

Sabahi-Fard warned against any illegal entry into the Iranian airspace, saying any violation of the country’s airspace will receive a “crushing response”.

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

During a test, its upgraded radar managed to detect a target at a distance of more than 450 km, and track the target at a distance of about 405 km before destroying it at a range of more than 300 km.

The Bavar-373 system made its first official appearance on August 22, 2019.
