The air defense system Iran unveiled is limited

The brand-new homemade Khordad 15 air defense missile system presented by Iran’s defense minister Brig. Gen. Amir Hatami on Sunday is not brand-new, DEBKAfile’s military sources report; it was developed from an older system. Neither is it capable of shooting down “enemy jets,” as the minister claimed. With a range of 120 km, the Khordad is fairly limited and effective mainly against drones, unless combined with Sayyad 2 missiles.
