February 19:

Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi says the Islamic Republic is producing various long-range radar systems which can cover a distance of up to 3,000 kilometers.

Vahidi said on Tuesday that radars with the capture range of 500-700 kilometers have been produced in Iran, adding building of new such devices with range of 1000-3000 kilometers is underway.

The Iranian defense minister also said that some of these indigenous radars will be used in detecting satellites.

Vahidi further said that Iran will unveil new defense achievements in the fields of radars, vessels, flying boats and submarine in the coming months.

Earlier on Monday, Vahidi said Iran would soon unveil various combat and reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which will play an instrumental role in promoting the country’s defense power.

He further said that Iran’s Defense Ministry plans to test-fire two air-to-surface missiles in the future.

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in the defense sector and gained self-sufficiency in essential military hardware and defense systems.

The country has repeatedly made clear that its military might is merely based on the state's defense doctrine of deterrence and that it poses no threat to other countries.
