He noted that Bavar-373 missile defense system has reached the production stage and its subsystems have been already tested.

Earlier this year, senior military officials announced that Iran was testing the subsystems of Bavar 373 missile defense system.

Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli said then that "laboratory tests are underway on subsystems of the long-range Bavar 373 air-defense system".

Late in September 2012, Esmayeeli had said that Iran has already completed one-third of the project.

Speaking to reporters on the occasion of the National Day of Air Defense here in Tehran at the time, Esmayeeli said that Iranian expert had completed 30% of the missile system's production project, and expressed the hope that they would complete the system by the end of this Iranian year (March 2013) or the next year.
