Iran on Tuesday unveiled a new surface-to-air missile and two radar systems. Talash-3 (“Endeavor-3”) SAM is claimed to be capable to shoot down hostile target at high altitude.
Air defense chief Brig. Gen. Farzad Esmaili said during a ceremony to unveil the new defensive systems that Talash-3 was test-fired recently. He did not describe its range.
