Another pretty decent effort. Iranian military technology is moving ahead surely!

What is it with them and Arabic names? This is really unpatriotic!

I'm sure there's a word for "moon" in Farsi! Sheesh!

Amazing that they have developed SAR that is latest technology! Also is that Iran made Magnetron lamp 3 pictures from the end?

There was also a new counter battery radar called ''Boshra'' which was based on Hafez radar, proximity fuzes and dual Hoveizeh launcher

Who cares what they're called. It only matters if they work. They can call their next radar Ricky Bobby for all I care.

Moon in Farsi is Mah, so calling it that would sound not very cool, especially for a weapons system that could be mistaken for a Chinese gentleman!

My Persian translation skills are weak and I was a bit unsure of using "Moon". But I figured the Koranic rendering it referred to as a safe bet. Relieved to see translations of Qamar as "Moon" appearing elsewhere, today.

It's good to know that the word "Qamar" was your choosing Mark and not theirs.

Still, the IRI has a poor choice of names when it comes to weapons systems. Maybe they do this to appeal to Arab costumers? Anyway, I see this as unpatriotic. Only export versions to Arab allies should be given Arabic names.

I hope the name Qamar is in the name of Qamar ol molook vaziri otherwise it is a lame non Iranian naming ! :)

I'm not sure what is a Magnetron lamp, but label translation is "x-ray lamp"
