(AP Photo/Vahid Salemi)Tehran – Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard has displayed the country’s sophisticated Russian-made S-300 air defense system in central Tehran.

    This is the first time that the S-300 air defense system has been displayed in public.

    The public show in Tehran’s Baharestan square near the Parliament building square exhibited different missile systems, including ballistic missiles, solid-fuel surface-to-surface Sejjil missiles and the liquid-fuel Ghadr.

    The IRGC prepared the show for the annual Defense Week, marking the 37th anniversary of the 1980s Iran-Iraq war.

    U.S. President Donald Trump signed in August a bill imposing mandatory penalties on those involved in Iran’s controversial ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them.

    1. S-300 is an old system, originally fielded in 1978. It has undergone many revisions since, both in the missile and the radar. I doubt very much that Iran has the latest version, which means it is useless against countermeasure systems installed on modern military aircraft.
