Iran is designing missile system similar to Russian S-300: minister
TEHRAN – Iran is currently designing a missile system which resembles to the Russian S-300 missile system, Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi announced on Sunday.
He said the process of designing and manufacturing the system would take a while but the Islamic Republic can now defend itself without it, Vahidi told the Mehr News Agency.
He also said Tehran will sue Moscow for breaking the deal to deliver S-300 missile system to Iran.
Russia’s president has signed a decree banning supplies of S-300 missiles and other arms to Iran.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Vahidi said Iran is currently manufacturing ‘Iran 140’ passenger airplanes and it also plans to design and manufacture other types of passenger planes.
He also said Iran is manufacturing new satellites, some of which will be launched into space soon
