    In a move that has generated buzz within the military analysis community, Iran recently unveiled a new iteration of its domestically-produced Bavar-373 long-range air defence system during a national military parade on Wednesday, April 17, according to SOFREP.

    The upgraded system, mounted on a Belarusian-made MZKT-791300 8×8 truck chassis, marks a significant development for Iran’s defence industry, showcasing both its growing self-sufficiency and its aspirations for a more advanced air defence network.

    Bavar-373: Boasting Advanced Capabilities

    Iranian officials have made bold claims about the capabilities of the new Bavar-373, asserting that it matches or even surpasses the performance of Russia’s S-400 system.

    A cornerstone of these claims is the system’s alleged ability to intercept fifth-generation fighter jets, including the American F-35, a technological marvel renowned for its low radar signature.

    Additionally, Iranian sources report that the upgraded Bavar-373 boasts enhanced target detection and tracking abilities, allowing it to identify up to 100 aerial targets simultaneously and engage multiple threats with its Sayyad-4B missile armament.

    The Sayyad-4B missile itself is an upgrade to the previous Sayyad-4 model.

    It features a two-stage, solid-fuel design that offers an impressive range exceeding 300 kilometers (186 miles) and a ceiling altitude of 120 kilometers (75 miles).
