The development of Iran’s defense technology, military arsenal and growing preparedness of the country’s armed forces is keeping its deterrence power at its highest level.

Iranian Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan highlighted that Iran’s enemies do not dare attack Iran due to the military power of its armed forces.

“We have home-made weapons and equipment, and the preparedness of our Armed Forces caused the (US-led) coalition forces that were close to our borders not to dare to attack us,” Brigadier General Pourdastan said on Sunday, Iranian media reported.

“After September 11, 2001, the US had not come to only capture Iraq and Afghanistan…, but their main intention was Iran; but they could not do anything due to Iran’s power,” Pourdastan added.

The development of Iran’s defense technology, military arsenal and growing preparedness of the country’s armed forces is keeping its deterrence power at its highest level.

Iranian Commander General Mohammad added that the Iranian Armed Forces rely on indigenously developed defense equipment which has made the nation self-sufficient in the military sector.

He concluded by saying that the sanctions have made Iran’s defense sector independent of foreign countries.

Production of Russia’s S-300 missile systems will be fully stopped next year, a high-ranking source in the Russian military-industrial complex told ITAR-TASS.

This also concerns export versions, he added. “I want to stress that the production of components for S-300 will continue and will even grow in the coming years,” he said.

The source said S-300 missiles would be replaced with a number of new generation systems. “S-400 becomes the main system for our Armed Forces. S-300 missiles remain in operation, and their production will not be halted in a moment,” he said.

The source said the marketing policy of Russian producers of air defense systems is now aimed at advancing S-400 to foreign markets.

“We have had a more efficient system for several years, I mean S-400. What is the point in producing things that don’t meet today’s demands of a customer?” he asked, saying S-400 supplies abroad would begin no earlier than in 2016.
