Capable of intercepting targets within a range of 150 kilometers and in high altitudes, Sayyad-3 has been paired with Talash missile system for the very first time during the country’s large-scale military exercise ‘Defenders of Velayat Skies 7’.

An upgraded version of a home-made air defense missile, dubbed the Sayyad 3 (Hunter 3), is designed to be mounted on the mobile version of S-200 air defense system. The air defense system is also equipped with locally-manufactured fire control radar, dubbed Ofoq.

The Iranian military has also tested a number of high-precision missiles, including low and high-range missile defence systems – Mersad (Ambush) and Ya Zahra-3. The long-range aerospace telecommunications system named Aseman operated by Iran's army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) was also part of the drill, Fars news reports.

According to the official IRNA news agency, Iran's Air Defence Commander Brig. Gen. Farzad Esmaili said that "F-4 fighter jets and S300 defence missile systems will be test-fired during the three-day exercise which began on Monday".
