Iran Beefs up Its Air Defenses

Iran received its first delivery of Russian-made S-300 air defense systems in May, and it is getting ready to put them to use. Satellite imagery provided by AllSource Analysis shows intensive construction underway at an air defense base near Tehran to accommodate the systems. The layout of the new construction at the base appears to be notably different from those of existing air defense positions in Iran, and the base’s location indicates that it may not be a permanent S-300 station, but a training facility.

    Gosh, with all that muslim inventive genius, that brought us math, science, and so on, why did they have to buy from the Russians?

      They wanted to deploy the system prior to the end of this century.

        Muslims are inventive. Hamas can very quickly develop and deploy armoured fighting vehicles.

    Beef it up till you choke on it boys….when the time comes you’ll be flattened in short order…..

    Flattened surgically if you will….but never the less anything of any material value to your offence will be obliterated tout de suite….

    As for defence let me explain that you have NO defence when Golem and Major Kong come calling.

      Air defense does not work against ballistic missiles. Just sayin’.

    Hard to cheer for vlad when he pulls this shit off.

    these s300 are nothing to laugh at. They are supersonic
