It seems Bavar is a hybrid system. It also makes sense why Iran did not want the S-300V that Russia offered during negotiations. It was already developing an S-300V.

It’s seems there will be at least 3 Bavars.

Bavar-V = S-300V like system can intercept BMs and operate at a lower cost than other Bavars. Battery can operate more autonomously.

Bavar-373 = the traditional unveiled version. Costly but on par with the latest S-300.

Bavar-L = Next gen longer range variant (S-400/S-500) with more capability and potentially a Sayaad-5 missile for hypersonic target interception.

Again just a theory. The Bavar-L is probably in r&d. Right now it seems Bavar-V and Bavar-373 are in a dual hybrid approach for survivability and affordability.

if its not unveiled im not going to comment on it and you know why. what i can tell you is that IRGC has confirmed they used new air defense systems, and its something big and powerful.
Are you talking about the "2nd generation" Bavar-373? Bigger missiles, better range, better radars...?
I remember I saw around 2 years ago an interview with Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili, he mentioned there is a new, better B-373 in work which will surpass S-400 and it will be ready in 2 years...
