There were statements from General Esmaili a few years back regarding Iran achieving 3000 air defense nodes through out the country by 1400 solar hejira. Considering the covid setbacks, how far along do you suppose the national air defense grid has come in this endeavour?
Iran does not need a lot. It just needs enough to make the enemy consider the high cost of intervention and the cascade affect of their actions.

So far, U.S. got some - yes "some" deterrence from Sullemani Assassination reaction, BUT not enough to be a worthwhile deterrence.

They feel they got rid of Iran's #2 and as soon as Khamanei is gone, they feel they are in a driving seat that would topple Iran.

Iran needs to start planning (if it hasn't already) and PROMOTING --- T O D A Y ---- for :

Islamic Republic of Iran 2.0

If don't have any ideas on how to do that, then they are really ****ed.

Iran's air defense is good enough. They just need MORE in quantities.

Iran also DOES NOT NEED the best fighter jets. I have said this before, all they need is AIRBORNE AIR DEFENCE platform, i,e, a fighter jet that can carry 8 long range air to air missiles that can hit fighter jets and cruise missiles and UAV/UCAVs from long distance.

A modified F-14 with good enough turbojet engines would do (even AL-21F), and a long range radar such as Irbis-S that has 25kw power with solid state power amplifiers. They can had a FLIR with liquid nitrogen for cooling. These are not high tech and something Iran can do.

For the Americans and their genocidal allies and supporters and warmongers ... these are significant enough (adding to Iran's ballistic missiles) to make the whole idea of war/battle with Iran almost unworthy and too costly.

Iran should not let perfection be the enemy of "good enough". Iran does not need range, for its OWN DEFENCE. It has 50+years of airborne tanker experience, and airborne refueling.

TEHRAN, Mar. 28 (MNA) – Iran's Commander of Army Air Defense Force Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard has said that the air defense force is at the forefront of defending the country and a symbol of the nation's might.

The Commander of Army Air Defense Force Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard made the remarks on Sunday while visiting the Fordow Airbase in Qom Province.

During the visit, he congratulated the personnel of Fordow Air Defense Base on the occasion of the new Iranian year (Nowruz) and called for intensifying efforts on the part of all sections of the society to fulfill the slogan of this year as it is put by the Leader ‘the year of production, support and removal of obstacles.’

Expressing his satisfaction with the preparedness of this Fordow Air Defense Base, Sabahifard pointed out, "Maintaining the defense power and monitoring the enemy and issuing timely warnings and dealing with any move of the enemy has created a deterrent power by the country's air defense."

The Commander of the Army Air Defense Force warned the enemies not to test the combat readiness of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran, adding, "The Air Defense Force is at the forefront of defending the country and serves as a symbol of the nation's might in achieving the goals and ideals of the Islamic Revolution."

In line with the guidelines of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Sabahifard called for strengthening the defense power of the country's armed forces, saying, "Defense power is one of the pillars of national power, our defense power supports our national security; Without security, all the values of the country will be in trouble."

I believe that device contains a net that is fired out at drones like quad copters to capture and down them.

Yeaaaaaaa...this makes sense,Iran is already pro at Short range AD.
Until Iran can show its domestic version of TOR-M1 I would not call Iran a "pro". Currently all Iran can offer are Manpads. 23mm, 35mm and 100mm anti aircraft guns mated with fire control radars and passive thermal optics and short ranged low altitude Ya Zahra/Herz-9 with a max range of 12kms. Why would Pakistan want to buy Iranian short range systems when they can buy more advanced Chinese systems.

If its only range you consider then Ya Zahra/Herz 9 have nothing short of Tor M1
But yes iran need to show a more modern short range system. Current line up short of 50km range are mot that interesting.

Can i ask a question? Are you talking about the Tor M whatevers and Pantsirs that couldnt take out lame binary Turkish Bayrakbat drones??? those drones aint worth THAT much tbh...also, Iran has already made medium and long range air defense systems...thats ALREADY proof Iran has conquered Short AD..no country that can make long er range AD equipments cant make short range AD..thats the easiest! Iran will FRY any aircraft that invade in the short range..thats a fact..there's a reason US is using high altitude aircraft when it strays into Iranian AD network..
Yes Syria, T-4 air base
Irans debt to repay Israel keeps increasing...
If its only range you consider then Ya Zahra/Herz 9 have nothing short of Tor M1

you people talk like ur not Iranians - Iran military doesnt care about new equipment, Iran military cares about EFFECTIVE equipment.
