An official at the Iranian Defense Ministry said Friday that the indigenous air defense system ‘Bavar-373’ is ready to join the armed forces.

Relatively, Second Brigadier General Saeed Shabanian, head of the Inspection Department of Iranian Defense Ministry, said during Friday Prayers sermon in the southwestern city of Shiraz that the Iranian version of S-300 air defense dubbed ‘Bavar-373’ is ready to join armed forces.
