Iranian military experts are building simulators for the long-range S-200, Hag and Rapier missile defense systems, a Senior Air Defense Commander announced on Sunday, adding that the country's armed forces are now using 300 various weapons simulators.

“We used to have only 12 simulators for the S-200 missile systems, but as a result of the efforts of the Iranian experts, now the (Khatam al-Anbia) Air Defense Base has 150 simulators for heavy missile weapons systems and 150 others for light missile weapons systems,” said Deputy Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base for Training General Mohammad Qorbani on Monday.

He reminded the development and building of Hag missile system simulators in Iran last year, and said military specialists are now building two new simulators for the Hag missile shield.

“Iranian experts are now halfway through with building a simulator independent from S-200, while development of the home-made simulator for Rapier missile shield has progressed by 95%,” He added.

The Senior Commander also said that “10 sky guard missile defense simulators are now being used by the Air Defense Base for training purposes.”

Qorbani also described manufacturing of drone and missile-launcher simulators as another plan being developed in the Air Defense Base, and said, “We also have 27 radar simulators for training our forces.”

Iranian experts have made huge progress in designing and developing various types of simulators in recent years. Simulators help cadets receive better training and test their skills in various weather conditions. The product helps the country save millions of dollars.
