Iran has not participated in international exhibitions for several years and at the DIMDEX international maritime defense exhibition in Doha, Iran presented to the public for the first time a scale model of a AD-200 long-range air defense that has been completely developed. by the Iranian defense industry.
According to the AD-200 scale models exhibited at DIMDEX 2022, an AD-200 battery consists of up to six TELs (Transporter Erector Launcher) each with a launch unit with four ready-to-fire missiles, AD-200 CC Combat Control Post, AD-200 SR search radar and AD-200 TR target tracking radar.
The AD-200 is an air defense missile system designed to intercept long-range, high-altitude air targets. The air defense system can be used in all weathers and can simultaneously engage six targets with 12 missiles. The AD-200 missile can destroy a wide range of aerial targets such as airplanes, helicopters, drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) and cruise missiles.
Citing the technical characteristics published on the Iranian arms export catalog, the missile can destroy air targets with a range of 5 to 200 km and an altitude of 200 m to 27 km. The missile has a diameter of 515 mm, a total weight of 2,050 kg with a warhead of 180 kg. The missile has an updated inertial guidance system via semi-active data link and active radar homing.
The AD-200 SR search and surveillance phased array radar is capable of acquiring and detecting targets at a maximum range of 320 km with an azimuth of 360° and an elevation of -3° to +85°. It can detect 200 targets simultaneously.
The AD-200 TR phased array radar is capable of tracking targets at a maximum distance of 260 km with an azimuth of 360° and an elevation of -3° to +85°. It can track 6 targets simultaneously.
