As I had mentioned in another thread this is the one of the 30 batteries of HQ-9 that Iran has obtained form China along with technology transfer since 2009. This a great technological coup for Iran and a great boost for its increasingly effective AD network. China had indeed proved to be a solid dependable all weather ally and a strategic partner.

The HQ-9 is a modern mobile strategic SAM system roughly analogous to the Russian-made S-300PMU (SA-10B GRUMBLE). The HQ-9 has a range of 100 kilometers, an increase over the S-300PMU's 90 kilometer maximum range but less than that of the S-300PMU-1's 150 kilometers. The containerized missiles are carried in groups of four on the back of wheeled TELs very similar in design to that of the S-300P's 5P85. Target prosecution is handled by the HT-233 phased-array radar system, mounted on a wheeled chassis in a configuration very similar to that employed by the S-300PMU, which mounts the 30N6 (FLAP LID) engagement radar on a MAZ-7910 chassis. The HT-233 radar is likely capable of engaging multiple targets thanks to its phased-array construction.

Iran's domestic SAM systems along with the Chinese SA-2, Iranian upgraded SAYYED 2, Russian Tor 1 (SA15) SA-6, French Roland, Iranain Shaheen (improved HAWKS), Feimeng 80 (Chinese Crotale)and many others including MANPADS like Stingers, Misagh 1 & 2 and SA-16 IGLA would be formidable deterrent for any insane enemy that thinks that Iran can be attacked with impunity. There are many more surprises. Stay tuned.

First they said that we could not survive the sanctions and isolation, but we did. Then they said we could not survive the Saddam invasion... we did and in fact almost conquered them back. They said we could not even make an engine, we did manufacture hybrid engines. They said we are way behind in science, now we are in top 25 countries on Earth. They said we could not go on our own, if the world isolated us on the nuclear program, we ended up surviving it and now launching more advanced centrifuges and mining our own uranium. They said we could not build ballistic missiles... now we have solid-fueled advanced missiles.. they said we could not send a kite to the sky, we sen't a satellite of our own. Then they said we could not produce air-defence weaponry, and here we go the s-300....let's see if this is another accomplished task!???!!

when the US gives 6 billion worth of weapons to Taiwan, then they should not be surprised when China plays the same tactic.

Iran seems the beneficiary here.

and one more word to the anon (April 18, 2010 10:38 PM)

About the S300: Its stupid and dangerous to place explosives that can wipe out a whole town on show, especially in a parade where diplomats and generals are spectating. Just incase a Mossad crypto-Jew decides to go suicidal and shoot the thing.

So yes, the s300's in the picture the are ofcourse not real, do you really think they'll put on show the real thing? Even the Soviets used mockups in their parades.

And for those dumbo anti-Persians, why do you idiots even bother commenting, go elsewhere with your idiocracy. Go drink some budweiser and masturbate, we don't require your filthy energy, so stop looking at our pictures.
