According to Air Defense Commander Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili, the range of Bavar-373 has increased 1.5-fold in comparison with S-300. It can identify the targets within a range of 300 kilometers and can take action against the objects within a 200-km radius.

In April 2015, Iran unveiled some of Bavar's subsystems, which include the Fakour commanding and smart control system which has the ability to collect information from all sources relevant to air defense, including passive and active military radars (such as the Mersad), signal surveillance, missile systems and commanding and control systems.

In August 2016, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani unveiled the country's long-awaited, domestically-built Bavar-373 surface-to-air missile (SAM) defense system.


Bavar-373 will utilize Sayyad-4 missile, which are contained in two rectangular launch canisters. No formal information was given about this missile but it appears from news photos that Sayyad-4 is similar to Sayyad-3 in wings and control surfaces, however it varies lightly in frontal shape.

The canisters containing the Sayyad-4 missiles are to be carried on the Zoljanah 10×10 truck. The Bavar-373 air defense system employs three different types of missiles to hit targets at various altitudes.

Bavar-373 uses a phased array radar like Russian 96L6 radar for tracking aerodynamic targets and ballistic missiles in medium to long ranges, mounted on the ZAFAR heavy truck.
