For the first time ever, Iran demonstrated to the public a scale model of a long-range air defense system developed entirely by its defense industry.
Based on the latest scale model, the Iranian air defense system AD-200 is expected to include up to six TEL (Transporter Erector Launcher) missile launchers with a launch unit holding four missiles ready to be fired, in addition to a search sensor from the AD-200 SR series, which is capable of detecting up to 200 targets simultaneously within 320 km, and the AD-200 TR target detection sensor capable of tracking six targets simultaneously within 260 km.
In the future, Iran’s air defense system will be capable of intercepting targets at long ranges and at varying altitudes. It is expected that the air defense system will be used in all weather conditions and launch 12 missiles at six targets simultaneously. An AD-200 missile can be used to attack a variety of air targets including aircraft, helicopters, UAVs and cruise missiles.
Armyrecognition.com indicates that the missiles can reach a range of up to 200 kilometers and an altitude of up to 200 meters. Approximately 515 millimeters in diameter, 2,050 kilograms in weight, and 180 kilograms of explosives will constitute each missile. Furthermore, the missile is equipped with an internal guidance system that is updated via both a data link semi-active and active radar homing.
