    Positions of Iranian S-300PMU-2 in the region of Tehran and Bushehr

    According to the British Janes, the positions of three of the four battalions of the S-300PMU2 SAM are now known. Two battalions (that is, one regiment) are deployed in positions in the Tehran area, one of them in the very capital near the airfield of the joint deployment of military and civil aircraft Mehrabad (the 1st tactical airbase of the Iranian Air Force) in the western part of Tehran, and another battalion On the basis of air defense a few kilometers south-east of Tehran, and the position of the Hawk or its Iranian copy of Mersad is also preserved on the same base.

    The second regiment of Persians decided to deploy to protect the Persian Gulf coast, while the position of only one S-300PMU2 battalion is known, which was placed at the Busher airfield (6th Air Force tactical base of Iran) at the old position of the Hawk SAM. The position of the second division of this regiment is still unknown.

    I looked in the locations indicated by Janes and found the positions of all three famous divisions on commercial satellite images that were laid out by Terraserver

    Iran Khatam Al-anbia AD Gen Esmaili: Aref 2 IFF system شناسايي دوست از دشمن عارف دو پدافند



    Identification friend or foe (IFF) is an identification system designed for command and control. It enables military and national (civilian air traffic control) interrogation systems to identify aircraft, vehicles or forces as friendly and to determine their bearing and range from the interrogator. IFF may be used by both military and civilian aircraft.

    IFF was first developed during the Second World War, with the arrival of radar, and early friendly fire incidents.

    Despite the name, IFF can only positively identify friendly targets, not hostile ones. If an IFF interrogation receives no reply or an invalid reply, the object cannot be identified as friendly, but is not positively identified as foe. There are in addition many reasons that friendly aircraft may not properly reply to IFF.

    IFF is a tool within the broader military action of Combat Identification (CID), "the process of attaining an accurate characterization of detected objects in the operational environment sufficient to support an engagement decision." The broadest characterization is that of friend, enemy, neutral, or unknown. CID not only can reduce friendly fire incidents, but also contributes to overall tactical decision-making.

    Iran Khatam Al-anbia AD Gen Esmaili: Samiya, Basir, Samet-1 سمیع، بصیر، سما و صامت۱ پدافندی هوایی

    نشست خبری امیر فرزاد اسماعیلی فرمانده قرارگاه پدافند هوایی خاتم‌الانبیاء درباره سامانه‌های سمیع، بصیر، سما و صامت ۱ پدافندی هوایی

    Press conference brigadier General Amir Farzad Esmaili, head of the Air Defense Base Khatam Al-anbia, on the Samiya, Basir, Samae and Smet-1 Air Defense systems

    Iran Unveils New Air Defense Gear
    In a ceremony in Tehran, Air Defense Commander Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili unveiled the four systems, dubbed Sama, Samee’, Baseer, and Samet-1.
    Sama, used for detecting aerial targets and controlling air traffic, is the first of its kind made in a West Asian country. It automatically receives data from flights crossing the Iranian airspace and defines the flight path in a short span.
    The homegrown system would be used to assist the Iranian Civil Aviation Organization in air traffic control and obviate the need for importing foreign equipment.
    Another system, Baseer, monitors and transfers data from radar and navigation systems to the command and control center, replacing six data analysis and transfer systems.
    Utilization of Baseer would the need for 54 forces on each working shift.
    The next achievement, Samee’, is a mobile system for the collection of radar and navigation data, which can be mounted on manned or unmanned aerial vehicles.
    And Samet-1 is an automation system coordinating the air defense sites that collect data

    What's people's view on Iranian air defence? They seem to have quite a mish mash of equipment but most seem to copies with a few upgrades but the problem I see is that most are western copies and I would suspect the west already know there weaknesses due to being western original designs and there's only so much upgrades systems such the ones based on hawk,crotale, and rapier u can do. There is also some soviet/ Russian equipment and then there's the more unique systems such as the Bahman based on zsu 57-2, the sa'ir based on ks-19, and the mesbah fully automated radar guided 8 barrelled zu-23-2. It really is a mish mash but it would be interesting to see your views

    Some things can be changed that would effectively change the structure of the SAM system even if it western. For instance, Iran produces their own processors which can be used for the various subcomponents used in the missiles and radar technology that would change the whole thing, meaning that it becomes harder to jam. Frequencies can change and so does its anti jamming capabilities. Sorry, I am suffering a hangover so I am not quite mentally there to explain the whole thing, but essentially Iran has the capabilities to change enough of the missile itself so it isn't so easy for US or others to "jam" it or pull the same thing that France pulled on Argentina during the Falklands war and its anti ship missiles.

    I would wager that Iran isn't bluffing on their AD systems and that these systems are real. Their effectiveness is in question but never underestimate anyone.

    Having a mish mash of differing systems makes it more complex to operate and maintain, but it also complicates the problem for the attacker because each system will have a strength and a weakness and by mixing together some weaknesses can be eliminated or at least minimised.

    Just as an example the SA-6 was an effective system when first encountered because of its continuous wave guidance caused problems.

    It was not useful against low flying targets, so the first countermeasure was simply to dive down to low level flight.

    On its own that would make it fairly useless, but combined with low altitude systems like MANPADS and SPAAGs like Shilka it made Israeli aircraft vulnerable to attack where normally they would simply over fly such systems.

    Different systems can force the enemy to change tactics, but if you anticipate their reaction you can continue to shoot down aircraft by allowing for the obvious tactics.

    Where is it best to destroy an enemy aircraft or incoming missiles ? The answer I think is at the point where the enemy has invested the greatest resources in building them and at a point where these weapons are just below operational level . For aircraft then , this is a point where assembly is almost complete at the factory . Where they exist with production machinery . Same for missiles . Therefore the best Iranian jet fighter and SAM is in fact a long range SSM or shorter range submarine launched cruise missiles to destroy enemy facility . Long before they come near us . The less cost effective method is to try and be a good goal keeper against many shots fired from many different players . Most deadly and difficult to stop can be low RCS cruise missiles fired from B52 , from 4000 km range . The best tactic is not to play this game . But to destroy the factory itsef . Hitting yank bases with 2000 km range tactical missiles will not stop or drastically reduce yank capability to hit Iran from platforms further afield . One cruise missile with one tonne conventional warhead can disable electricity supplies for entire city .

    For the multi- millionares who run America , there is two possible scenario for Iran . The win win and the win loose ( they win and we loose ) . They have decided that win loose is better for them . Since the military sector makes money by building more weapons . And civil sectors can win big later by monopolising the Iranian market . There is no loose loose scenario for them . If they attack , then they suffer no loses to their factories or banks or stock exchange or Las Vegas , where they have fun . Unless Iran can create a loose loose scenario , then they will opt for win loose instead .

    I used to think that ICBM and cruise missiles with conventional warheads only had a limited psychological impact . But because of huge increase in accuracy , only a few need to get through to make a difference . Imagine no factory or stock exchange or Las Vegas for a few weeks . This will be an unacceptable cost to them . Enough to change their minds .

    So if you don't have ICBM , then make them . If you have them then display them . So they change their thinking .
