The US "Military Observation Magazine" issued an article on January 18, saying that with Iran's modern transformation of the Soviet system, the world's largest S-200 air defense network has been fundamentally improved.

S-200 gnown to the air missile system from 1966 to serve the Soviet air defense troops in the Soviet Union, which was the farthery in all air defense weapons systems, and its high-end S-200D model was produced in the 1980s and designed to combat 300 km. Outside the target. The S-200 is still unparalleled before the Russian military is a 40n6 missile of the S-300V4 and S-400 air defense systems.

S-200 became the pillar of the Soviet remote air defense in the 1980s, the number of deployments reached 130 large bases and 2030 transmitters, and was first exported to Syria in 1982.

However, due to the sharp shrinkage of the Russian Air Defense Force and the importance of mobile, the system suddenly retired in the 1990s, which is the most prominent weakness of S-200 as a heavy fixed air defense system. The S-300PM-1 missile system started in 1992 is the main promoter of S-200 retirement. The S-300 system is compact, strong motor capacity, although the sensor is weak, the range is shorter than S-200D, but still has a considerable amount of 200 kilometers of battle distance and high stateful ability.

While no longer serve Russia, S-200 systems are still extensive abroad, especially Poland, North Korea, Syria and Iran. Iran is the most important operator of the system and the last export customer of the system. Iran purchased 10 sets of S-200 air defense systems in the 1990s. In the past 20 years, this is the only relative modern land base air defense system in Iran. During the war of two Iraq, Iran once seriously relies on the F-14 fighters equipped with AIM-54 remote empty guides to air defense, and the number of Iraqi aircraft destroyed by F-14 exceeds the sum of all other Iranian equipment. At the beginning of the 1990s and early 21st centuries, due to shortage of spare parts, Iran's F-14 team has become small, so S-200 has made a very big contribution to the country's original short-range air defense capabilities.

Since then, Iran has a modern transformation of its S-200 system with its experience in the modernization and reverse engineering of the US MIM-23 "Hawke" air defense missile, and the experience of producing China HQ-2 air defense missile under the license.

Hatam An Biya Air Defense Base Commander Fazad Esmoyli will announce that the Iranian defense department has developed an unprecedented mobile transmitter for S-200 systems, and improves the sensor to shorten its detection shooting tracking time.

Iran has also integrated new domestic missiles into S-200 systems, especially in 2011, Sayyad 2 and Sayyad 3 missiles. These missiles appear to be an improvement and reverse engineering version of the S-200 system V-880 missile, although there is no indication that there is any improvement in the mobile phone. These investments have shown that Iran intends to operate S-200 for a period of time and is likely to become the last operator of the system in this decade.

As a supplement to these efforts, Iran also uses "Holder 15" and "Bavar-373" to improve the air defense system. It is estimated that the operational distance of these remote missiles is 200 kilometers. Modernization of S-200 may be considered a costly alternative to other SHD, which may be sold abroad, especially Syria.
