Iran mulls replacement for Russian S-300 missile system

Published: 01.13.14, 17:18 / Israel News

Tehran is considering a replacement for the Russian S-300 missile defense system, a senior Iranian lawmaker told Fars news agency Monday.


Russia signed a contract with Iran in 2007 to deliver five S-300 advanced ground-to-air missiles -- which can target aircraft or guided missiles - at a cost of $800 million. In 2010, Russia's then-president Dmitry Medvedev cancelled the contract because of UN sanctions and strong US and Israeli pressure over concerns about Tehran's disputed nuclear program. (AFP)
