Iran’s military has successfully tested a new radar system, the S-300, which is capable of detecting and tracking enemy aircraft and missiles. The system was tested during a military exercise in the central city of Isfahan, and is seen as a response to recent attacks on Iranian nuclear facilities. The S-300 is a significant addition to Iran’s defense capabilities and could potentially deter future attacks.
