Iran unveils a new air defense system.

On Monday Iran’s Defense Ministry alongside the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Aerospace Force (IRGC AF) unveiled a domestically built mobile air defense system called “Herze 9”. Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi commented on this new achievement.

“Herze 9” can identify and target enemy helicopters, rockets and fighter jets at low ranges and low altitudes of about 8-12 kilometers. This mobile air defense system uses the most technologically advanced computer hardware and software and the latest navigation system available today. Brig. Gen. Vahidi said Iran has produced this defense system, despite the recent wave of unilateral sanctions of the west against Iran.

Iran’s Defense Ministry and the IRGC AF future project is to build a domestic high range and high altitude air defense system, which experts believe to be one of the most difficult tasks in military defense.
