Iran has unveiled a new surface-to-air missile and two radar systems it claims will boost the country’s defense capabilities. The missile will enable Iranian forces to shoot down any hostile target even at high altitudes. Talash-3, or Endeavor-3 missile was successfully test-fired recently. Two radar systems has been also unveiled. Arash-2, tasked with detecting miniature drones at a distance of 150 kilometres (93 miles) and also Kayhan, said to be capable of detecting cruise missiles and drones.
