Iran Wants S-300 SAM System
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- Iran, despite the easing of any U.S. attack, continues
to seek an advanced long-range air defense system from Russia.
The U.S. intelligence community has determined that Iran was moving
toward procurement of the S-300, known in NATO as the SA-20. The community
said Iran has been investing heavily in advanced air defense assets and
began deployment of the Russian-origin TOR-M1 system, or SA-15.
