In August 2016, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani unveiled the Bavar-373 air defense system. A distinguishing feature of Bavar-373 is its vertical launching system with square-shape launchers, mostly used for air defense on warships. Bavar-373 works with a long-range, phased array fire-control radar, dubbed Me’raj-4.

The air defense system employs three different types of missiles to hit targets at various altitudes. Iranian military technicians have made great achievements in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
