The new Iranian Falagh radar was presented on Saturday 10 August by Iran’s Air Defense Brigadier General Alirez Sabahi Fadh. It was created on the basis of the Gamma-DE surveillance radar delivered to Russia by Iran. According to the general, the sanctions imposed by the USA do not allow obtaining spare parts for Russian equipment, so it was decided to create a domestic radar based on it.
Iranian experts installed a domestic component base on the radar and gave it the name Falagh. The new surveillance radar is designed to track ballistic, cruise missiles, drones and can be integrated into the country's air defense system in conjunction with existing C-300 radars.
Once again, the brave young generation from the air defense of the army successfully went through an alien system that had not been used for a long time. They performed a difficult task that the manufacturers of this system could not cope with.
