Tehran reported receiving the first batch of the advanced S-300 surface-to-air missile system from Russia earlier this week, and used the parade dedicated to the Iranian military on Sunday to demonstrate its acquisitions.
According to photos published by the Iranian media, trucks carried three elements of the complex, including a command post, a truck for towed long-range target acquisition radar and a mobile radio antenna used to extend communications range for other elements of the system. No actual missiles or missile launchers were demonstrated.
