Thanks. Is the claimed 320km range for Mehran-2 SAM plausible just with the TELAR radar, or would it require separate supporting acquisition/tracking radars?
It's plausible for large-RCS targets for sure, probably a shorter range for tactical-size aircraft.

Reminder that Bavar-373 detected a Karrar target drone at 432km and got a lock at 376km. But Bavar's radars are noticeably larger and on dedicated vehicles. The acquisition radar is also S-band, whereas Mehran's FCR is likely X-band. Bavar is definitely more suited to engaging tactical aircraft.
