Iran has unveiled a new surface-to-air missile and two radar systems to boost the country's defense capabilities.

Commander of Iran’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili says the missile will enable Iranian forces to "shoot down any hostile target," even at high altitudes.
He says the Talash-3 (Endeavor-3) missile was successfully test-fired recently. Esmaili's speech was broadcast on state TV Tuesday.
The general also inaugurated two radar systems named Arash-2, tasked with detecting miniature drones at a distance of 150 kilometers, and also Kayhan, said to be capable of detecting cruise missiles and drones.
Over the past years, Iran has attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems.
On August 24, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani unveiled two marine cruise missiles, Ghadir and Nasr-e Basir, as well as two unmanned aerial vehicles, Karrar-4 and Mohajer-4, during a ceremony in Tehran.
The Islamic Republic has so far designed and manufactured a variety of indigenous missiles, including Sayyad-2, Khalij-e-Fars (Persian Gulf), Mehrab (Altar), Ra’d (Thunder), Qader (Mighty), Nour (Light) and Zafar (Triumph).
The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured its neighbors that its military might poses no threat to other countries, insisting that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
