Iran has unveiled a new ‘self-defense’ radar and missile system. The Talash-3, or Endeavor-3, allegedly has a range of about 200 kilometers.

It was successfully test fired recently, according to Iranian Air Defense chief General Farzad Esmaili.

“Talash is a mid-range and high-altitude air defense system used to confront the flying targets, including fighter jets and bombers, and is also capable of destroying different helicopters and drones,” he said.

“Talash defense system was designed and built to detect and intercept the targets of Sayyad (Hunter) 2 missile (the country’s latest home-made missile system with high precision, range and destruction power) to protect the country’s vital and sensitive points against surprise air threats of hi-tech combat fighters,” he added.

The missile will enable Iran to “shoot down any hostile target,” he said in a speech broadcast on state television Tuesday.

Also inaugurated were two radar systems, the Kayhan, reportedly capable of detecting cruise missiles and drones, and the Arash-2, which was said to detect miniature drones at a distance of 93 miles, or 150 kilometers.

Iran has already developed at least one ballistic missile capable of reaching Israel and U.S. bases in the Middle East — the Shahab-3 missile.
