JED - November 2016 - 61

On the definitive version of the TELAR displayed at Army2016, and shown in an earlier artist's concept released by the
Tikhomirov Scientific Research Institute of Instrument Design, the EO system has been repositioned to make room for a
new and smaller flat-panel antenna located directly above the
main antenna.
Maximum range of the Buk-M3 is reported to be 70 km,
while an ability to engage targets flying as low as 5 m has been
claimed. Earlier Buk systems have no significant anti-missile
capability, but Russian press reports credit the Buk-M3 with the
ability to engage targets flying at speeds of up to 3 km/sec.
The Buk-M3 is expected to enter service before the end
of 2016.

IRAN IMPROVES ITS SAM DEFENCES
Iran released new images of its Bavar 373 long-range surface-to-air missile (SAM) system on August 21. These showed Iranian President Hassan
Rouhani and Minister of Defence Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan standing in front of a missile transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) and one of the
system's radars.
The TEL they were shown is based on a wheeled chassis, and carries two
storage-launch canisters that can be raised to the vertical position. According to
reports in the Iran press, each canister contains a single Sayad 3 missile.
Little can be gleaned from the photographs of the radar that was displayed.
The antenna is mounted on a wheeled platform and consists of at least two
planar arrays. It probably performs the same role as the 64N6 (Big Bird) surveillance/detection radar of the Russian S-300PMU-1/2 system.
"We did not intend to make an Iranian version of the
S-300," Dehghan told Iran's IRNA news agency. We wanted to Iran's president and
minister of defense

some respects the Bavar 373 is superior to the S-300, offering missile transportererector-launcher
increased mobility and reduced launch-preparation time.

2010 due to sanctions imposed on Iran by the United Nations. The lifting of these sanctions on April cleared the way
for deliveries to begin, and some system components, including radars and reloaders, took part in Iran's National Army
Day on April 17.
On July 19, Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, Rapporteur of
the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy
Commission, confirmed that part of the S-300 system had
been deployed. Two days earlier, Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli, commander of Iran's Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense
Base, announced that the S-300 contract would be completely
fulfilled by the end of the current Iranian year (i.e, by March
20, 2017).
By early August, Russia had delivered half of the contracted S-300 systems to Iran. On August 25, Dehghan stated that
having taken first deliveries of the S-300 system, Iran had no In this photograph, the front face of the antenna array of what is

First photographs of the Buk-M3 TELAR showed that
the turret had what was either a 9S36 radar or a further-developed derivative. Located immediately above
this was a housing containing an electro-optical (EO)
system. In Russian press reports, the EO system is described as a "tele-thermal imaging target designator"
with detection and tracking capabilities.
