TEHRAN – Iranian experts have upgraded the Hawk air defense missile system, the public relations department of the Khatam-ol-Anbiya Air Defense Base announced in a press release on Monday.

Brigadier General Farzad Esmaeili said that the effective range of the radar system of the medium-range surface-to-air Hawk missile system has been doubled.
He went on to say that the missile system has also been modified so that it can deal with electronic warfare measures.

On January 28, Iran unveiled two domestically manufactured simulators for Hawk and Skyguard air defense missile systems.
The simulators have also been designed and manufactured by experts at the Khatam-ol-Anbiya Air Defense Base.
The simulators are able to simulate various targets including missiles, aircraft, helicopters, and drones and implement various military tactics and electronic warfare measures.
