An Iranian radar system
Iran has deployed a domestically-built radar system in the Persian Gulf capable of tracking and destroying enemy ships and fighter jets, says an Iranian army commander.


The Matla-ul-fajr radar system, which covers the entire Persian Gulf region, has replaced "Western-made radars," commander of Iran's southern air defense region General Qanbar-Ali Salahian was quoted by Fars News Agency as saying on Wednesday.

Salahian said Iran's air force is using a variety of defense equipment including long and medium-range radars and missile shield systems to protect the country's air space.

"We always remain fully prepared to counter any possible threats against the country," he added.

The general said the air defense system covers the Persian Gulf and its littoral states.

"The system can be used to track and destroy enemy ships as well as fighter jets," he concluded.
