Iran briefs Russia on its updated S-200 SAM system
Doug Richardson, London - IHS Jane's Missiles & Rockets l 11 November 2013

During a meeting held in Tehran on 20 October 2013, Russian Air Force Commander Lieutenant General Viktor Bondarev was briefed on improvements that Iran has made to its Russian-made S-200 (SA-5 'Gammon') surface-to-air missile.

"We briefed the Russian Air Force commander on the changes we have made in the [S-200] system, and he admired these capabilities," General Farzad Esmayeeli, Commander of Iran's Khatam Al-Anbia Air Defence Base, told reporters following the meeting.

By changing the structure and protocol of the S-200 system, and by incorporating new Sayad (Hunter) missiles, Iranian engineers had expanded the system to allow the engagement of medium-range threats, Esmayeeli told Iran's Fars news agency.

Iran rolls out another medium-range SAM - IHS Jane's 360
Jeremy Binnie, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly-11 November 2013

Iran has continued to increase the confusion surrounding its air defence programmes by announcing that another medium-range surface-to-air missile (SAM) called the Sayyad-2 has gone into production.

The Sayyad-2 was first mentioned in April 2011, when the Iranian media reported that it had been tested and indicated it was an upgrade of the Sayyad (or Sayad, meaning hunter in Persian), which is the Iranian version of the HQ-2 (the Chinese version of the Russian S-75).

In August 2013 Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili, the commander of the Iranian air defence force, announced that Sayyad-2 missiles had been used with Iran's S-200 system.

While this suggested the Sayyad-2 was a new long-range SAM, Gen Esmaili indicated that it was an additional, rather than replacement missile. "We could enhance [the S-200's] capabilities to cover mid-altitude threats by changing the structure and protocol of the S-200 system and using Sayyad-2 missiles," he told journalists in October.

When the Sayyad-2 was unveiled for the first time in a 9 November ceremony, it became clear that it uses the airframe of the RIM-66 (SM-1) naval SAM that Iran acquired from the United States in the 1970s.

Iran claims it is already producing its own version of the SM-1 called the Mehrab. The Iranian navy announced on 1 January 2012 that the missile had been test fired for the first time from the fast attack craft Gorz .

Senior naval officers have said the Mehrab has a passive radar homing capability that allows it to engage aircraft that attempt to use electronic countermeasures to jam its active radar homing system.

Unlike the naval version, the Sayyad-2 is fired from individual canisters that are similar to those used by the MIM-104 Patriot air defence system. A truck-mounted launcher with four canisters was displayed during the ceremony.

Few details of the Sayyad-2's guidance system and range were released, although Defence Minister Hossein Dehghan described it as a high-altitude, medium-range SAM and said it would be used with the Talash system.

"The Talash defence system was designed and built to detect and intercept targets for the Sayyad-2 missile," he was quoted as saying. "Now that it has had successful tests, God willing, its production line will be launched in the near future."

Iranian television also broadcast footage of a Sayyad-2 being fired from a launcher and apparently successfully intercepting a target. The footage did not clearly show the associated radars, although a height finder may have been glimpsed in the footage, suggesting the missile was being used in conjunction with an old Russian or Chinese system rather than with a modern three-dimensional radar.

The original SM-1 has a range 40 km, although the Sayyad-2 could potentially have a longer range if it had a mid-course guidance system that steers it to its target more efficiently than its forebear.

This would ostensibly make the Talash/Sayyad-2 a rival to the Ra'ad, which was displayed for the first time during a military parade on 21 September 2012 and looks similar to the Russian Buk medium-range air defence systems, which Iran is not known to have acquired. It was announced at the time that Ra'ad has a range of 50 km.

Iran has also unveiled what it claims is an indigenously produced version of the MIM-23 HAWK system known as the Mersad, which is claimed to have a range of 40 km. A vehicle-mounted version of the system known as the Ghader was unveiled in 2012.

Iranian navy completes refurbishment of four vessels - IHS Jane's 360

The Islamic Republic of Iran Navy (IRIN) announced on 1 December that it has completed the refurbishment of four of its vessels.

Two are the Kaman-class (Combattante II) fast attack craft Neyzeh (P 231) and Tabarzin (P 232). The Fars news agency reported that they are now armed with Nour and longer-range Qader anti-ship missiles, as well as 76 mm Fajr-27 main guns.

The imagery of the ceremony held at Bushehr shows the boats now have four anti-ship missile canisters: an upgrade that has already been rolled out to most of the Kaman class.

The Fajr-27 is the Iranian version of the Oto Melara 76 mm compact gun that the vessels were originally fitted with when they were built in the late 1970s. However, the Iranian media coverage showed that the vessels' firepower has actually been reduced by replacing the original 40 mm Bofors rear guns with 20 mm Oerlikon GAM-BO1 cannons.

The IRIN announced that the Delvar-class support ship Sirjan (472) has also been refurbished. The Delvar class was built in Karachi in 1980-82.

Meanwhile, the IRIN held another ceremony at its Bandar Abbas naval base to mark the Hengam-class landing ship Lavan 's (514) return to service after refurbishment. The IRIN has said that it was using Hengam-class vessels as replenishment ships to support naval patrols.

On 27 November the IRIN unveiled what it described as a new three-dimensional phased array radar called the Asr. Commodore Ali Gholamzadeh, the head of the IRIN's research and development department, was quoted as saying: "Asr radar system is capable of simultaneously identifying and intercepting 100 targets at water level or above."

The antenna appears to be identical to the one seen on the Jamaran-class frigate that is being built at the Caspian port of Bandar Anzali.

Iran's Defense Minister says his country is now using laser systems to dramatically improve the accuracy of its ballistic missiles.

Hossein Dehghan said missiles can now hit to within two meters (yards) of their targets, compared to 200 meters (yards) previously. His comments were posted on the ministry's website Monday.

Iran frequently announced breakthroughs in military technology that are impossible to independently verify.

Iran has a variety of missiles, some with a reported range of 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles), enough to reach much of the Middle East. Commanders have described them as a deterrent, capable of hitting a U.S. base or an Israeli target in the event of a strike on Iran.

The Pentagon released a rare public report last year noting that Iran has improved its missile capabilities.
