Army unveils tactical radar, simulator

The Iranian Army showcased a new homegrown tactical radar system capable of highly accurate detection of targets, and a long-range simulator used to intercept and track ballistic missiles and a wide range of projectiles and flying objects.

During a ceremony in the capital Tehran on Saturday, Commander of the Iranian Armys Air Defense Force Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard unveiled medium-range Hormoz tactical radar.

The domestically-developed Iranian radar system can precisely determine the speed and distance of objects, and send accurate information to the command center of air defense missile units, Press TV reported.

Hormoz is also capable of enhancing combat capabilities of armed forces, has long endurance, requires shorter time for repair and maintenance, enjoys higher precision for detecting the direction and altitude of aerial targets, with its antennas having better reception quality that can identify targets faster than other radar systems.

Meanwhile, the strategic long-range Shams simulator can be used against ballistic missiles and a range of other targets.

The homegrown system is capable of simulating actions against various aerial targets, and can swiftly develop and enact modern combat scenarios.

Last month, the Iranian Army unveiled the three-dimensional and phased-array Alborz radar capable of detecting and tracking various aerial targets.

The radar has a range of 450 kilometers and is capable of intercepting and detecting long-range stealth flying targets with low radar cross-section.

A low-range and low-altitude command-and-control center called Borhan was also put on display.

After receiving and analyzing data from all sources, Borhan transmits them to the highest levels of command to make decisions in the shortest possible time.

The command could then take necessary decisions regarding the potential launch of any required operations and destruction of perceived targets.

The unveiling of the two systems came after the Iranian Armys Ground Force launched a massive military exercise, codenamed Fatehan-e Khaybar (Conquerors of Khaybar), in the northwestern part of the country on Friday, attended by armored, artillery, drone, and electronic warfare units under air cover provided by helicopter gunships.

The overt and covert presence of the Zionist regime's proxies and the possibility of a significant number of Daesh terrorists in regional countries add to the importance of this exercise,” Ground Force Brigadier General Kioumars Heydari said.

He added that Daesh terrorists were brought into the region at the height of the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Heydari highlighted that four new indigenous military achievements, including a long-endurance drone which can hit its targets with pinpoint accuracy, electronic warfare systems that can be very effective in defense and offense, and two anti-tank rifles will be tested, and their range and accuracy measured during the maneuvers.

We will also evaluate the caliber of indigenous smart artillery shells during the exercise,” he noted.
