Iran will unveil a domestically-made missile system similar to the Russian S-300 missile system in the next Iranian calendar year 1393 (March 2014-March 2015), the Mehr News Agency quoted army official Farhad Amiri as saying.

Necessary tests have been carried on the Bavar-373 missile subsystems, he added.

Although the U.S. hindered us from buying the Russian missile, but we started building it domestically, so that it will be inaugurated next year, he noted.

Under a contract signed in 2007, Russia was required to provide Iran with at least five S-300 air defense systems.

Iran will unveil new ballistic and cruise missiles in the first six months of the current Iranian calendar year, which started on March 21, Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi told the Mehr News Agency on Saturday.

Vahidi also said that the new cruise missile will have a longer range compared with previous domestically manufactured cruise missiles.

In addition, he said that new bombs would be unveiled, a new submarine and a new missile-launching flying boat would be launched, and new helicopters, aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles would be delivered to the country's armed forces in the first six months of the calendar year.
