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.
Iran on Sunday unveiled the upgraded version of the Bavar-373 missile system, a state media outlet reported.
